What do Valerie's students say?

With a seasoned eye for alignment, Valerie helps her students understand and appreciate the fullest experience of each pose, while keeping their bodies safe and injury-free.

Valerie encourages her students to explore and express their individual yoga practice through pose and breath, as well as incorporate their own life's wisdom and intuition into every movement.

Valerie is inspired by the differences that make people and their yoga practices unique. She teaches how the quiet minutes at the beginning and end of class are as important as the strengthening and lengthening poses in between.

Valerie encourages students to practice in harmony with their current ability. Often, this challenges students to address their motivation in a new way. As we journey through these new ways, we develop new thinking patterns that help to create positive change. Through the practice of poses, balanced nervous systems and stronger bodies support us through a fulfilling and personally rewarding mind/body experience.
