Verena’s Background

Verena Vomastic, PhD, is an award-winning instructor, innovator, visionary leader, implementer, entrepreneur, and community connector. Throughout her professional career, she has been inspiring and empowering individuals from all walks of life to exceed limiting expectations and realize their true potential.

Verena specializes in integrative approaches to optimizing mind-body health and well-being. She is passionate about promoting growth and transformation and sharing the science, the gifts, and the magic of Energy Medicine. In her practice, she employs a unique blend of practical tools, proven techniques, and leading-edge technologies aimed at boosting vitality, resilience, performance, and overall quality of life.

With a scientific (mathematics/physics) and cosmopolitan background, Verena provided technical expertise to Department-of-Defense operations worldwide for over three decades. However, she was increasingly drawn to turn her long-standing interests in natural medicine and holistic healthcare into a new career. Her professional training in working with subtle energies began in 2007.

With over a decade of formal education and extensive hands-on training and practice, Verena has become a recognized expert in the rapidly expanding field of energy medicine and its contributions to holistic stress management and empowered living. She obtained certification as an advanced practitioner and authorized teacher from Donna Eden and proficiency in several other established energy-medicine modalities, such as the NES Health™ system and the Emotion Code®.

Besides her connection with Donna Eden, Verena has been guided to many other teachers who have all influenced her professional development in one way or another. Among these, several truly stand out as human beings, for their teachings reflecting a deep appreciation of the wisdom and healing power of nature, and for their generous sharing of resources: Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD (Klinghardt Institute—The Heart of Healing); Brian Luke Seaward, PhD (Inspiration Unlimited— Holistic Stress Management); and Roxanne Roberts (building community around Sandra Ingerman’s practices of modern-day shamanism).

Verena has been a fitness enthusiast all her life and enjoys sharing her own creation of trauma-sensitive Gentle Energy Medicine (GEM) Yoga, along with the MELT Method®. She discovered YogaFit® workouts in 2007 in her search for natural back-pain relief. By combining yoga practices with energy-medicine self-help techniques, she was able to resolve her back issues, increase her overall balance and resilience, and establish a lasting practice to support her trail-running adventures.
