Valerie Fowler is certified at the E-RYT 500 level through Yoga Alliance, with more than 4,000 hours of classroom teaching experience. She completed both her foundational 200-hour and advanced 300-hour trainings at Yoga Shakti with Diana Pipaloff. She started practicing yoga asana in 2002, and a short time later met her teacher, Jnana Nanda Bharati, whose unbroken spiritual lineage is more than 5,000 years old. Under his unwavering guidance she began studying the vast science of Yoga and has since been committed to her studies and a daily practice.
Valerie teaches a vinyasa flow style, with a focus on linking breath with harmoniously-sequenced movements. She strives to inspire students to safely explore going deeper in their practice, and understand the subtleties of their own bodies along the way. In addition to teaching group classes, Valerie also leads 200 hour teacher trainings, teaches private lessons, mentorships and workshops, and guides meditation classes. With deep gratitude and respect for her training, she is committed to sharing her experience of authentic yoga with her students.
