Within a short time, Valma noticed the benefits of her yoga sadhana (practice) raised her level of awareness, allowed her to stay focused, calmer, healthier and present in her physical body. This was important to her, as she had lost the use of her legs temporarily in the recovery of a spinal injury some years before.

In the continued exploration of yoga, Ayurveda and other healing modalities such as Qigong, Energy Mirrors, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Sound Healing, Attunement to Nature, Animal Communication, Spiritual Iridology, Tarot, The Sedona Method, Numerology, Astrology, Palmistry and further Self-Awareness Trainings, she found her practice to create a bridge between the body, mind and the spirit and she believes this will also play an important role in the global awakening. As an E-RYT 500 in traditional Hatha / Hatha Flow yoga, Tantra, and Chi yoga flow are practices that Valma incorporates in her daily life as well as offerings in her women only adventure programs.

Valma is a recognized advanced yoga and Ayurvedic health educator from the American Vedic Institute and a certified / registered Ayurvedic practitioner. She is registered with the North American Association of Ayurvedic Practitioners and attends and contributes to conferences world wide. She is also a certified Qigong master 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. Valma has traveled, leads Spiritual Shakti Yoga Fusion Adventures and has studied extensively in India, Canada, USA, Thailand, and many other locations in the world. Presently, she is mentored by Ramesh Rastogi in Astrology, Numerology and other ancient Spiritual practices from India.

She has furthered her education as a permaculture designer and incorporates sustainable natural living practices at Clarananda and in her daily 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. She invites all to celebrate personal success and natural well being through awareness, motion and nature.

    "Herizen Yoga was an amazing teacher training program. I found it extremely valuable to have the opportunity to do teach outs with the group, getting me comfortable with teaching others, and having feedback from the other instructors and Valma. Herizen Yoga was much more than just learning about how to teach yoga but it encouraged a more positive life, and offered so much! I would highly recommend this program and Valma to anyone who is interested in, not only learning about yoga asanas, but the philosophy, meditations, chanting, and so much more! The program and the atmosphere was beautiful, the setting of the training in Vancouver Island was more than I could have asked for, and the bound formed with the other beautiful ladies was incredible. I feel that Valma incorporated so much in her program and I can't wait to do another training program with her. I hope you get the chance to experience this wonderful journey with Valma. Namaste."

    "The Herizen Baja YTT Camp Training has truly been a life altering experience for me. From learning how to properly teach Yoga asanas, to nutrition, to self-confidence, to Clarimizing, to learning about deliberate intent, I feel I am bringing so much back to my life, professionally and personally. I can't wait to incorporate everything I have learned with this Baja Yoga Teacher Training into all aspects of my life! Not to mention how proud I am of myself for coming home with my Yoga Teacher Certificate!"

    "Valma's offering is so much more than yoga teacher training. Valma taught very precise alignment, nurtured our confidence, and shared everything we would need for teaching our own classes, and in addition, she transported us to India! We not only learned about the philosophy of the roots of the yogic way, but we also included these accompanying practices into our daily rituals. I particularly appreciated the opportunity to eat in the Ayurvedic manner. Valma spared no expense and trouble in preparing any dish or tea. Her enthusiasm to impart these principles helped me to not only experiment with my diet but to also stick with it. I came back not only as a yoga teacher, but also as someone with the tools to live a more balanced lifestyle. Thank you Valma!"

    "Herizen was a life- changing experience. Valma Breton is a very competent, confident, knowledgeable and compassionate instructor. I feel that Valma expanded my knowledge and understanding of yoga, aryuvedic practices, spirituality and community. It was a very small group so we received a great deal of one on one attention. I would highly recommend Valma to anyone who is interested in pursuing their teacher training and expanding their horizons on their life journey."

    "Valma's 200 hours Yoga Alliance recognized Yoga Teacher Training / Certification and Self-Mastery for Women was transformational. I learned so much more than yoga asanas. Mostly, I learned about myself. Her smaller class allows personal time and Valma really does take time to help you make your yoga practice incredible. The time she takes to help you make your classes your classes! She helps you find your essence day by day. The group of women here are magical and inspiring. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to learn with Valma Brenton. I think her from the depths of my heart. Namaste!"
