Yoga found Valerie with a stressed-out monkey-mind, competitive ambitious nature, and the ability to sit still for all of . . . 10 seconds! It was the calming effect that kept Valerie coming back in the early days of practice and trying to balance a demanding career as an architect. She found that while yoga helped reduce stress and improve physical strength and flexibility, it also provides something more deep and meaningful – increased self-awareness and a foundation for personal growth in her home and work life.
Valerie completed Sun & Moon’s 200-hour In-Depth Foundations program, Mindful Resilience for Trauma Recovery Level 1 training through the Veterans Yoga Project and is a certified Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra® leader.
In 2017, Valerie completed a second 200 Hour YogaWorks Certification Program led by Alexandria Crow and continues ongoing mentorship with Alex to further define the interrelationship of philosophy, asana, body mechanics, and anatomy to her personal practice as well as class offerings.
Mondays – All Levels, 6:45pm - 8:15pm, Fairfax (starting Fall 2017)
