MEET VALERIE

Fast forward to 1991. As a single mother needing to find meaning and keep a roof over her head I enrolled in a 5,000-hour massage program, graduated, and then enrolled in an 800-hour subtle energies, polarity therapy and reiki graduate program. I then studied and received advanced training at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA. Esalen is home to the human potential movement that developed in the early 60s. 

I have always loved to learn. I recently completed an online training with Richard Tarnas (Cosmos and Psyche author) and Stan Grof (Holotropic Breathwork author and founder). I have certifications in various Yoga traditions including Kripalu, hatha and yin, and assisted in training yoga teachers with IKYTA. I also am certified in sound therapy with gong-master Don Conreux. 

In 2009 I began my training with The Steven Forrest School of Astrology. I’m certified as a level 2 Astrologer through his program and have been in private practice since 2011.

I offer weekly classes in yoga, meditation, and sound therapy. My classes are a fusion of these traditions. I love to teach, to encourage, and to foster a sense of empowerment in others. 

Along with weekly yoga classes, I see astrology and yoga clients individually, lead small groups, and facilitate workshops and retreats. ​

What Clients Are Saying

“The reality, as I have come to understand it, is that the future is not fixed, and that therefore it cannot be reliably predicted. Consciousness interacts with vast archetypal fields of possibility and probability. What actually happens is the result of the collision of both forces.”
