teacher & therapist

who i am

Valerie Weir has been practicing kundalini yoga since 1973 and trained directly with Yogi Bhajan. She has also served as a teacher trainer for the Kundalini Yoga Institute. She has extensive experience in sound healing, having trained with gong master Don Conreaux, and is a practicing evolutionary astrologer, apprenticing with astrologer Steven Forrest. Her classes and workshops synergize the planetary sound of the gong, astrology, and classical kundalini yoga. Classes are for all people so come as you are.

The gong experience is an immersion in a “spiraling cocoon of total sound” heard through the ear of the body itself. It creates a sense of ecstasy and well-being as energy blockages are released at the cellular level, allowing the body systems to function more efficiently.


astrology readings

An apprentice with with evolutionary astrologer Steven Forrest, Valerie helps clients interpret the practical astrological factors within their natal charts for one reason: to encourage their soul's development toward a life of fulfillment.
