Meet Your Teacher:
Valerie found her way to the practice of yoga in high school where the union of movement, breath, and stillness of the mind that yoga provides quickly captivated her. In college, her yoga practice became a lifeline as she was trying to navigate her place in the world, which is how she began teaching yoga in 2005. Valerie is registered as a 500-hour yoga teacher (RYT-500) with Yoga Alliance and recently completed a 300-hour advanced teacher training at Yoga on the Hill in Kittery, Maine. Rather than subscribing to a particular style of yoga, Valerie has drawn inspiration from her education, teaching, travels, other yoga teachers, and the many yoga students she has been blessed to guide and share a practice with to create a unique style of teaching. Valerie also uses her extensive knowledge and education of anatomy and alignment to further inform her instruction. She is passionate about providing a practice suited for everyone that not only soothes the body but also calms the mind. Valerie uses kindness and compassion to meet each person where they are and allow them to feel successful each time they step onto their mat. She has been certified through the American Council on Exercise as a personal trainer since 2008 and works full-time as a middle school wellness teacher, where she teaches yoga and mindfulness in all aspects of living to 6th-8th grade students.
