"Veronica was a lovely person and poet and inspirational."
"The workshop was absolutely amazing. We got to make our own rap and perform in front of our whole year. I really enjoyed the audience participation."
"I enjoyed the freedom to be creative and express myself."
IS THE FUTURE ONLINE?
As with every educational service we are taking the steps to introduce online content and remote classes for our clients. Veronica is no stranger to being in-front of a camera but still prefers teaching face to face.
Whilst we slowly adjust we are using the time to finally develop ideas that fuse yoga and rap to create some original content designed for teenagers and adults.

RAP LESSONS BEGINNERS
SET THE FLOW MEETS ARLEKIN
We spent a week in Belgium during the Halloween half term to deliver an English course for young people aged 5 - 11.
Each day combined elements of yoga, singing and rap to encourage a fun and engaging way of learning English .
We created a short musical performance in English based around the theme of Halloween which was shared with friends and family on the last day. The project was a great success for everyone involved. We hope to be back again for another project in 2020.
WHERE YOGA MEETS RAP
Leah Vee is delighted to share the music video for her yoga rap song entitled AUM – A Universal Mentality.
The song (produced by DJ Pipe) combines a delicate display of Hip Hop beats, spoken rap flows and mesmerising vocal melodies accompanied by lyrics about Leah Vee’s deep passion for yoga philosophy and spirituality.
Video Director Slim Yearwood affirms, “Having always been a fan of growing my spirituality this video was something I was happy to direct and create. Everyone can have their own take-home from the video but the themes within it (enlightenment, love, connection to ourselves, others and nature) are definitely connected to the core creativity of the song”.
This project also showcases the creative talents of Dancer & Choreographer Navala ‘Niku’ Chaudhari, Stylist Charlotte Abale Gnahore and Make Up Artist Giulia Varvello.
AUM will be released on Leah Vee’s forthcoming EP – 5 in early 2019.
