"You must be firmly rooted.

Such is the first law.

Then grow and assert yourself.

At this moment open yourself, 

stretch out your arms to feel the radiation around you,

and then bring the universe back to you with your head held high,

for it touches the sun.

Be deep, wide, tall, truly a Tree of Life."

Thanks go to my yoga peeps who wanted to share these testimonials for the benefit of others!

 “Val’s classes are a perfect blend of relaxation and movement and she encourages each student to find the space that they are most comfortable to practice in. She is extremely sensitive to beginners and the learning curve that comes when you first take to the mat, she makes everyone feel so welcome. If you are looking for a teacher to reenergize your body and refresh your soul, Val’s classes are the place to be."

 "Yoga with Val is very different from the classes I've been to, where it can be all about the instructor's ego or yoga as an aerobic workout.  Val focuses on breathing and moving to build strength. She tailors the class to her student's needs.  Val is a natural teacher and is down to earth, funny and very welcoming.  Her Scottish accent is very soothing." 


Broomhall, PA

“Val's classes have a flow to them, different from other yoga classes I've been to in my twenty years of practice.  She responds to each student individually, yet creates an overall energy for the whole class that is very satisfying, light but focused.   Val's teaching has helped me grow stronger, physically and spiritually.“


Media, PA

"I would have to say that I enjoy Val’s classes because the yoga is mostly gentle and Val is never judgmental and always encourages us to listen to our bodies and follow that lead.  I really enjoy the feeling of doing something good for my body and not feeling pressured to push the limit.  I keep coming back because Val is so personable and knows how to put a person at ease. She treats people as if she has known them for ever. Plus, I love her Scottish accent."

 “I have been taking yoga on and off since college (that adds up to many years!) What I really enjoy with Val is the calm state that I can go into and remain in during the session.  Yoga with Val is a slower paced, mindful based session that is strenuous enough, yet comfortable to push different limits and build strength.  Val is great at making accommodations as needed, and her voice throughout the class, and especially for the meditation at the end, is wonderfully soothing!”


Landenberg, PA

"Everything said about Val is absolutely true. She is a magnificent teacher and was instrumental in helping me recover from a torn hamstring (not from her class) and encouraging me to listen to my body. Once I could return to yoga, she easily accommodated my special needs. Although her classes are called gentle flow, my core has been strengthened steadily. I have grown physically and spiritually under Val's guidance."
