Yoga Teacher Introductions 

Valerie Rebecca Samuel believes yoga is for everyone. She sees yoga as an inner personal practice that seeks to connect or reconnect the mind-body link. As a yoga instructor, Valerie hopes to address concerns that prohibit or discourage people from trying yoga. She describes her personal yoga philosophy as, “when I practice, I listen to what my body tells me it needs. I send breath and energy throughout my body, but especially to the places that ask for my attention. In return my body responds with action, movement and healing, as best as it can. I heal my body and my body heals me.

Kjera Seregi has been practicing yoga since 2010 and teaching since 2013, completing her 200-level training with Brahmrishi Yoga.  Her classes usually move at a slow to medium pace, and vary in intensity from gentle to moderate, allowing everyone their own opportunity for individual exploration.  She guides her classes with the goal of using the yoga poses to help calm the mind and increase focus, while allowing for breath to energetically flow through the body.
