Valerie Hartwich, a massage therapist and a yoga teacher
Valerie is passionate about helping people experience more awareness, joy and agency in their lives using yoga and massage. This passion first brought her to psychology, sociology and political science.
After working in PR and events in Paris and Rio, she turned her childhood passion into a full time career by retraining as massage therapist and yoga teacher. This gave her a wider toolset with which to empower people, giving them access to deep release, ease, and greater awareness of themselves.
She teaches restorative yoga to wind down body and mind, yin yoga to release joints and fascia of built up tension, or a slower flow to grow strength and flexibility with awareness. Having had to care for her father as he struggled with dementia, she faced head on the challenge of how to take yoga off the mat. At the heart of her teaching is the dedication to find simple and effective tools to deal with the challenges that can arise in life.
Students can expect dialogue, fun, attention to personal issues, as well as plenty of simple tools to use in daily life. And last but not least a great deal of care and kindness.
