Valma Brenton E-RYT 500, YACEP, R.A.P, R.A.L.P, Valma is a transformational dynamic trainer and a global adventurer. She discovered Qigong and Kundalini Yoga 18 years ago while working in Chile. Within a short time, Valma noticed that the benefits of her Yoga (Sadhana) practice raised her level of self-awareness, increased energy levels, she became more heart centered and all of her relationships improved, she gained fantastic heath and improved flexibility. This was important to her as she had lost the use of her legs temporarily in the recovery of a back injury some years before. In her continued exploration of Yoga, Qigong, Ayurveda and other healing modalities she found her practice to create a bridge between the body, the mind and the spirit and she believes this will play an important role in the global awakening. Valma has studied in India, Chile, Mexico, Thailand, Canada and the USA.  She has been teaching Yoga Teacher Trainings in Baja, Mexico and Vancouver Island, BC, Canada for the last 8 years. Valma is recognized by Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 500 in Iyengar/ Ashtanga and traditional Hatha. She is certified as an Advanced Yoga and Ayurvedic Health Educator by the American Vedic Institute and a Certified Ayurvedic Practitiioner by the New World Ayurveda School.  Valma incorporates intergrative Yoga / Ayurveda practices in her daily life as well as offerings in her women only adventure programs. She is certified in Qigong (Cloudy Satchel form) and believes Yoga, Qigong and movement gets people into their bodies, deeply connects them to themselves, and more openly connects them with nature and others. It is a transformational practice. "My purpose, says Valma "Is to be a mirror for other women, to share my knowledge and wisdom of life and encouraging them to reach their desired dreams, reach their fullest potential and live their ultimate life. To inspire them to create miracles in their lives and be open to the present moment… creating balance through awareness, self-confidence, intention and faith. I invite you to celebrate personal success and well-being through awareness, motion and nature. Join me on the journey of freedom through Yoga, Qigong, Ayurveda and let your Spirit fly.
