Vet Yogi Den Programme


11.30 - 11.45 Meditation 101

Vet Yogi details

VetYogi is thrilled to be back at another London Vet Show, where, together with CloserStill Media, we aim to provide a calming space amongst the conference chaos, and, encourage our colleagues to try some self-care practices both at the event and to take away from busy day-to-day life. This year the Wellbeing Zone programme offers more new and exciting sessions, including our tailored yoga and meditation taster classes, plus we’ll once again have our full range of VetYogi yoga and home fragrance products.

We can’t wait to see you all for connection, candles, or even if you just need a moment of quiet. 

Meet the Team

Dr. Chloe Hannigan BVetMed MRCVS, Founder and Director, VetYogi

Chloe HeadshotChloe qualified as a vet from the Royal Veterinary College, London, in 2012, and has worked in mixed and small animal practice in the UK, Australia, and NZ. She is currently a small animal locum, and loves the variety, teamwork, and surgical opportunities which her job brings, while acknowledging that sometimes veterinary medicine can be a very challenging profession to be a part of.

Having practiced yoga and meditation on and off for many years, she realised just how beneficial these practices were for helping with the management of work-related stress, easing the tension and aches that come from doing a physically and emotionally demanding job, and generally feeling more positive both professionally and personally.

Wanting to share these practices in realistic and evidence-based ways, she qualified as a yoga teacher in Bali and founded VetYogi in 2017, and encouraged by the response of the veterinary community, completed her 500-hour yoga teacher training in India in February 2020. She has since gained further yoga teaching and mental health qualifications, is registered as a Yoga Alliance Professionals teacher, and teaches a variety of yoga styles, including Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Yoga Nidra, as well as Meditation/Pranayama. She is a proud member of the profession, and passionate about improving veterinary mental health and wellbeing by bridging the scientific and spiritual realms.

Lindsey Raven Emrich RVN

Lindsay PhotoLinds is a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) and qualified British Wheel of Yoga teacher, with many years of experience in both the veterinary and yoga worlds. She currently works part-time in practice alongside teaching, involvement with a variety of eco initiatives, and family life. Linds qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2015 and has been teaching yoga since 2013. Her veterinary colleagues thought she was crazy when she took on the 3 year course alongside working as a full time veterinary nurse!

As a busy working Mum she knows just how hard it can be to find time to practice self-care, so in alignment with the VetYogi ethos she delivers her teaching in ways that are supportive and achievable for all! She primarily teaches Hatha yoga, along with meditation and breath work, and enjoys making yoga accessible for everyone. Her focus is enabling her students to better understand their own bodies, and appreciate what is “normal” for them. Linds shares the VetYogi mission to encourage all veterinary colleagues to embrace yoga for better holistic health, and joined the team as a VY Associate Yoga Teacher in 2021.
