Valerie has been practicing yoga since 2001 and because of the way it changed her life in so many positive ways, she found her calling and began teaching in 2006. She completed her teacher training in 2007 and is currently registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT and YACEP.
Her teaching specialty and passion is vinyasa yoga, a creative movement based asana practice intimately linked to the breath. She places an emphasis on alignment and paces her group classes to enable students to find the safest and fullest expression of the postures, movement, and the breath. She also enjoys working one-on-one with people of all ages, catering private lessons to individual need.

Some of her esteemed teachers include Jason Ray Brown, Leslie Kaminoff, Alison West, Dr. Loren Fishman, Julia Hough, Tom Myers, Jillian Pransky and Elise Miller.
She hopes to inspire others to make yoga a way of life.
