What other Yoginis have to share

"Valma's offering is SO MUCH MORE than Yoga Teacher Training.  Valma taught very precise alignment, nurured our confidence and shared everything we would need for teaching our own classes, and in addition, she transported us to India!  We not only learned about the philosophy of the roots of the Yogic way, but we also included these accompanying practices into our daily rituals.  I particularily appreciated the opportunity to eat in the Ayurvedic manner. Valma spared no expense and trouble in preparing any dish or tea.  Her enthusiasm to impart these principles helped me to not only experiement with my diet but to also stick with it.  I came back not only a Yoga Teacher, but someone with the tools to live a more balanced lifestyle.  Thank you Valma!"  Sherry Lavoie - Canada
