Valarie's Purpose Statement -
Let's Move! I hold space for you to explore and care for your body and mind with a gentle practice that invites stretch, strength, mobility, and longevity. Move for move we breath at the level and pace you seek, for a unified experience.
STRETCH & STRENGTH
MOBILITY & LONGEVITY
I lead classes seasonally at my home in Ten Sleep, and year round at Cloud Peak Chiropractic & Wellness in Worland. I practice and teach for stretch, strength, mobility, and longevity, of both body and mind.
I focus on aligning unique bodies with desired goals, in honor of all abilities and limitations. Following each breath with a movement hones in on the deeper strength the mind has to offer, while centering all attention on the self for much deserved care.

I moved to Ten Sleep, Wyoming to slow down my pace of life. Originally from California I was raised to love camping, fishing, and the outdoors. Rock climbing and running are my favorites ways to enjoy nature. Over the years both activities led to small injuries due to imbalances in my body. I began practicing yoga to heal and restore my physical body, and to my surprise found mental harmony. I love to teach those beginning their yoga journey, or continuing their practice even after years of being off the mat. Now I own and manage the Ten Sleep Rock Ranch with my husband and climbing partner, where we host campers from all over the world.
"Yoga is for the body, the mind, and the spirit. It’s for health, wellness, and humanity. It’s for you, if you are ready to try something new and learn more about yourself.”
I came to yoga as many do, broken. The toll of being an athlete was hitting me hard, and my physical body hurt. I’d been told yoga could cure what ails me, and that I should at least give it a try. What I was not prepared for was everything non-physical that it revealed and helped to heal. There were personal wounds to unravel, and self doubt to over come. I felt frail from core to cover. Yoga showed me a path back to wholeness, but most importantly it guided me over the treacherous terrain that lay ahead. As new road blocks appeared I found myself better equipped to handle what life tossed at me, and discovered how much I am resilient. Succumbing to emotions, sitting with the sensations, and unpacking the lessons was a generous gift from yoga that I benefit from daily. Not everyone experiences yoga this way. Some come to it for general fitness and quiet time. Others find comfort and solace with their personal practice. One of the special gems of yoga is the individual approach and experience we all can have with it, and at different ages and stages of our lives. It’s Your practice.
How this translates to my teaching
I approach leading yoga with a social wellness intention. Everyone comes to the mat with a variety of health and fitness levels, and we are all susceptible to injury and issue. Yoga does not cure all, but it can offer support to your journey towards physical, mental, and spiritual wellness.
All levels, ages, and stages are welcome in class. Simply step onto the mat to begin. I teach a slower version of yoga, so that you have a chance to feel it working throughout. Slower does not have to mean easier. Controlled steady movement can lead to strength, increased mobility, and expanded body awareness. Uniting your breath with movement brings mindfulness to the mat, and often a soothing affect through meditation and a mental reset. I teach to your anatomy, your body, and your mind by giving many options, modifications, and permission to take the practice where you need it to go. You do you, YOUga.
