Valarie Klass, 200 CYT in Hatha Yoga from Sundari Yoga, was introduced to yoga in 2008 through her Tang So Do Instructor, which awakened the idea of a kinder, gentler way of life and so she made the necessary changes to pursue her new path. She is filled with happiness and light now that she has found her passion in life. Yoga has gifted her the balance she has always searched for in her very busy life and career, as well as the many more rewards that come with the practice and building a strong connection with oneself. Valarie's approach brings focus to the Bhandas and engagement; inviting students to connect, direct and utilize the energy locks within the body and experience the power and essence each pose has to offer. Students can expect to feel clearer and higher states of consciousness.
Valarie is honored to teach and bring together community through yoga; developing new friendships through the amazing people she meets. Valarie plans to teach yoga part time in her retirement and spread love and joy to all who welcome it into their lives. She is currently working as a Regional Manager in Health Care and is registered in both Cardiac and Vascular Ultrasound.
Valerie Klass instructs the following:
This class unites ujjayi breath with continuous movement to create vinyasa flow. The breath-synchronized movement includes a variety of poses smoothly transitioning from one asana into the next both quickly and slowly, allowing for a relaxing, invigorating, meditative and reviving total body muscular and cardio work out. The student can expect to build internal heat, increase heart rate and oxygen consumption, sweat and release toxins, while building strength, flexibility and endurance. Vinyasa flow is an overall physical and mental work out (a moving meditation) as the student learns to discover peace in the midst of challenge…this state of mind is known as “yoga bliss” or “the yoga zone.”
*This class is suitable for ambitious beginner students as well as practicing yogis.
