Vanessa Montenegro

v_headshot4_-ABVanessa is the creator of Flipswitch and is an avid run, yoga, pilates and fitness enthusiast who is always looking for a ways to live to her full potential.

Her mission is to inspire this in her students by designing classes and programs that are challenging, technical, energetic and spirited with energy and support! She believes that When sweat meets a smile, things shift, exercise becomes training, and healthy becomes who you are, not what you do.” Its a magical moment when you tap into your potential and find — more strength, more energy and more balance — so that you can get out there and live bigger in everything you love to do in life. 

Vanessa also works closely with runners helping them find more strength, speed, agility and health in their training programs.  Her vision is to integrate the run and yoga communities and look at training through a new lens that will help runners find longevity in their sport keeping them in their sneakers for decades.  These programs create new spaces where runners can take their training off road, onto the mat: the grace of yoga meets the fluidity and drive of running… perfect!

Her latest wins in the community include a yoga segment on eTalk CTV, leading the Post Race Yoga at the GoodLife Marathon and SportingLife 10km as well as supporting the Nike Running Clubs with yoga programs.  In addition to Flipswitch, she manages the Joga Ambassador & Certification Program and has expanded her practice to work with a number of professional athletes.  Vanessa is also proud to be a part of the Vega Team, a  Lululemon Yoga Ambassador Alumni, as well as active in the Toronto run community.
