Judith Valerie Yoga is an integrated, eclectic blend of yoga that Judith has evolved over 35 years. It is strongly influenced by training and certifications in Kripalu yoga, White Lotus vinyasa flow yoga and Iyengar yoga. Classes and workshops can also weave in classical hatha yoga, Vini-yoga, Integral yoga, yoga for bone-strengthening and yoga for balancing mood (depression and anxiety.)
