My name is Val. I am inspired by nature, human connection, and love. I received my 200 hour yoga teacher certification through Yoga Motion under the guidance of Nancy Ruby and Martha Piersma. I have taught over 1,000 hours of yoga and am now an E-RYT and YACEP. In 2017, I completed 85 hours of advanced training in prenatal yoga with Yo Mama, inspired by teachers Kirsten Warner and Katie Wise and I am now a practicing RPYT. My deepest passion is working with people to craft yoga experiences that are right for your life. I have training in trauma-informed yoga and yoga nidra, which give me the skills and knowledge to make classes robust and meaningful so that you can feel and believe that you are everything you need to be, just as you are. I used to own and operate Aspen Leaf Yoga as a studio in Hamilton, MT with a wonderful team of teachers and a beautiful yoga community. After two years as a studio owner, I decided step away from this journey to bring more energy into my individual business and my sweet family. I'm currently studying to become a certified Health Coach through the American Council on Exercise.
