Valerie is an amazing teacher. Her passion and extensive knowledge was reflected in the confidence I felt at the end of the training. It was an incredible journey of self learning, inspiration on and off the mat and ultimately a gift we pass on to others. I would definitely recommend her teacher training program to everyone who wishes to challenge themselves and deepen their practice. It was a beautiful experience. I think for anyone who has the opportunity to join Jewels in yoga practice, or life in general will be rewarded by the experience.

The training was a great experience to improve my skills in teaching, clueing, layering. Valerie, the head of the training is knowledgable, passionate for yoga, and a great practitioner. She knows the business industry as well and shares that experience as a yoga studio owner. Most importantly she manages to help us to develop our own style and voice as a yoga teacher.

I was very satisfied with the training I received at Yama Yoga Studios. The program was broad in its scope and the teachers offered invaluable guidance throughout. I particularly appreciated the open mindedness with which Valerie encouraged us to approach varied perspectives, even when they were at odds with her own. To me, this is the hallmark of an accomplished educator

She just knows her stuff, has an amazing capability of getting everyone involved and is truly committed to getting through to the needs of each participant. Feels like searching for the jewel within yourself.

I just finished my yoga teacher training at Ananda yoga & detox center in Koh Phangan. It’s been the best decision I made this year. The program just make sense. You feel Valerie put so much effort into making us ready for teaching. From week one we practice teaching and though it’s a bit challenging when you’re not used to it, it also makes you feel so ready in 4 weeks. I grew everyday more then I could’ve imagined. The yoga classes itself been the best I experienced ever. Valerie makes you challenge yourself but always with the most loving smile and help when you need it. The group is not big so there is a lot of personal attention. Those four weeks with my group was like meeting my new family. I can’t express my gratitude enough. Thank you Valerie and all other teachers I had the pleasure of meeting. And also, I’ve never been more excited about meals in my entire life. The food is next level. Thank you wonderful kitchen staff. You’ve been so warm and kind.

Not sure the proper words exist yet in English to describe Valerie and the entire Ananda team. Perhaps ‘out of this world’ or ‘simply amazing’ would be a good understatement. My experience at Ananda was so much more than imagined. The team is very empowered to help you in building a quality and soul healing experience. Took the 200 hour Yoga Teacher training with Valerie and her assistant Jackie. The training and knowledge between the team is impressive and they worked perfectly together to make all the class stronger in yoga physically and mentally. Valerie is very confident and always cares for her students’ health; undoubtably pushed me to new heights and limits never imagined. And also, I’ve never been more excited about meals in my entire life. The food is next level. Thank you wonderful kitchen staff. You’ve been so warm and kind.

Valerie – she has quite simply done yoga her entire life and it shows. She’s learned from everyone you can think of in India and around the world (lots of historical knowledge),and has been through injury throughout her life (knows how to help heal the body and encourages modifications to suit your practice ALL THE TIME). She’s the real deal yogi. Yoga – the yoga is intense (2 hour class + 3 hour workshop every day) but there is never any pressure at all to do more than what your body is ready for. Valerie checks in with every student each morning to see how their bodies are feeling and provides recommendations on what they should do more/less of each practice. She is a big proponent of “the student is always right” and to “modify, modify, modify.” If you want to go super hard? She will coach you how to do it safely. Want to protect an injury – she will give you 5 different mods to consider or be totally happy with you just sitting a pose out. Thank you wonderful kitchen staff. You’ve been so warm and kind.And also, I’ve never been more excited about meals in my entire life. The food is next level. Thank you wonderful kitchen staff. You’ve been so warm and kind.
