   "Valerie is an incredibly thoughtful teacher, who brings not only an amazing awareness of asana architecture and sequencing, but she is soulful, kind, and joyful throughout her class.  Valerie creates playful, yet structured sequencing that allows the yogi to feel safe, grounded, and challenged.  Her loving and kind spirit is infectious, and her knowledge of the human form in asana brings the yogi to such clarity and understanding in class." - Nicole Nastari

   "Valerie is overflowing with love and enthusiasm for yoga. Her classes are thoughtfully and expertly sequenced- and always seem to be just what I need before I even know I need it. Her genuine excitement, fun and surprising sequencing and amazing playlists keep me so entralled  that it isn't until afterwards when I'm all sweaty and glowy that I realize I just worked my ass-ana off. Combined with her loving hands on assists and her thoughtful musings on yogic philosophy- Valerie's classes are not an opportunity to be missed." - Rebecca Hersh

   "Valerie is my favorite yoga teacher by FAR! Her classes are incredibly thoughtful and she keeps you challenged while still allowing flexibility around poses that just may not be in your practice yet. She picks the best music and perfectly times songs to reflect the energy of the current flow. I find this really inspiring and it helps boost my energy when moving faster through poses and/or trying something really intense as well as calms me when moving through times of lower intensity and pauses for breath. Her classes always have a good theme that seems to hit home. She is real and honest and speaks wisely. Her classes not only strengthen your body, but your mind and spirit too. She is a true gem and I cannot recommend her enough!" - Annie Thibodeau

   "I have been taking Valerie's classes regularly for a year now. Classes with Valerie have been totally inspiring and transformative. She brings in elements of music and movement that aren't always typical combinations in yoga classes so it always makes for a different, fun and exciting sequence! She also knows exactly how to challenge and work the body for a great workout while differentiating the difference between pain and discomfort. She also always has an important idea to reflect upon, taking the class much deeper than just a physical practice. Her classes have pushed me to try new poses and challenge my thinking. She is open, loving and friendly and makes for an amazing teacher!! Thank you so much for all that you have taught me this year, Val!" - Emma Iacono
