Margarite Valentine

Yoga has been a part of my life for the last 20 years, but never with the dedication that I developed when I joined Yoga Village. Maybe it was the combination of being at the right place, at the right time with the most excellent yoga instructors ever that planted a desire in me to go deeper into the experience. Whatever the reason, this desire led me into the 200 hour teacher training which became another amazing experience and created a deeper bond that grew within me for yoga. I love yoga for what it can do for me and anyone who opens themselves up to the Yoga Experience.

  • Yoga & Meditation
  • Come experience a class that is open to all levels and encourages you to grow, not only in your physical practice but also on your path. Gentle Hatha Yoga, followed with guided meditation.
