We are both super passionate about prenatal yoga and working to create a prenatal community at RCY. As mothers, we both know the importance of taking time for self-care, as well as connecting with other mamas-to-be. We are looking forward to offering you a safe space to relax, recharge and reconnect.
Valerie started her yoga practice in 2001 shortly after the birth of her daughter. Initially seeking to balance out an active fitness routine, the practice became a life’s journey. It was from day one on the mat that she knew she would teach, and share this journey with others. She has a special interest in working with students within their own range of motion tuning into pure, functional movement in the body. Valerie believes anyone can practice and experience the benefits of yoga. She uses a whole-hearted approach to encourage students to connect deeply to movement within their own bodies. Valerie teaches Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Baby & Me Yoga, Yin Yoga, Vinyasa, and Restorative. Valerie completed her 200 hour certification in May, 2018 with Cindy Boulter, 85 hour Prenatal & Postnatal certification with Bec Conant of Om Births in 2019, and completed 300 hour certification with Cindy Boulter and Theresa Murphy in 2021. Additional training includes Reiki I, Trauma-Informed Teacher Training, Restorative certification, Yin certification, pelvic health training, and an apprenticeship with Jacqui Bonwell. Valerie is currently working on a Women’s Health certification and is working to become a PCES (Prenatal/Postnatal Certified Exercise Specialist.) On her free time, she enjoys reading, writing, true crime podcasts, spending time with her family, and connecting with the natural world.
Megan has been practicing yoga since 2008 and has always been passionate about health, wellness, and the study of human nature. After completing a Bachelor’s in Psychology, she focused her attention on caring for her growing family, now quite full with four kids. She’s found a wealth of knowledge, compassion, and understanding through being a mother that quickly turned her to the emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of yoga. In 2021, Megan completed her 200-hour teacher training with lead trainer Cindy Boulter, and completed her 85-hour prenatal training with Down Under School of Yoga. She continues to study yoga to work towards her 500-hour teacher training under teacher Michelle Young. Yoga, to Megan, is so much more than the physical time spent on the mat but how that practice translates to how each of us live our daily lives. Learning more about oneself through the ancient yet timeless philosophy of yoga is the center of her practice and goal as both a practitioner and a teacher.
