Here is a selection of what my students have to say . . . .
I just love this class! Judith is a wonderful teacher! Her passion to help people is reflected in her teaching style. She teaches us not only how to do the poses but also explains the physical and emotional benefits. I have noticed that my body is stronger, more flexible, and is in better balance since beginning yoga with Judith. She is very friendly, encouraging and offers good correction in form and alignment. She truly cares about her students’ experience. Her class will help you heal your body, mind, and heart!
The professional quality of instructions offered on Judith's Zoom classes is wonderful! Each time I take a class with Judith there is at least one moment during class where I feel so good and so grateful to have a body. Her teaching methods are exceptional in how she creates a space in class that fosters a positive inner-dialogue between my thoughts and my body's abilities. Even during the more rigorous poses there is a language of kindness and gentleness that comes through Judith's clear and concise instructions. She is a masterful teacher.
I have been taking yoga for years with Judith but have especially enjoyed her Zoom classes and feel they have strengthened my commitment and improved my practice - taking it to a new level. The flexibility Zoom offers and participating in class in my own home has saved time, offered more classes, and added relaxation and meditation time. I now practice with Judith at least three times a week and enjoy greater flexibility, strength and mental health. Judith is a joy and Zoom gives me greater access to her! Namaste:)
I have been taking Yoga with Judith Valerie for a few years now and have been very happy. I have essentially learned a lot about yoga from Judith who compliments yoga with meditation. I think that many yoga class classes can lead you through the motions but Judith guides you through good form and pays individual attention to what your body needs. The session environment flows in such a peaceful manner that allows you to get totally immersed in the experience. I recommend her classes.
Judith Valerie is the best yoga teacher I have ever had. When I lived in Raleigh full-time, I took her class in person for about seven years. But when my husband and I moved away, I had to give it up. One of the few good things about the pandemic was that she began offering her classes online via Zoom, so I could take them again, to my great delight. Judith cares deeply about her students. She offers a range of classes so that regardless of how experienced you are at yoga, you can find a class that suits your needs. Besides the physical exercises, I appreciate the deep relaxation at the end of each session and the emphasis on mindfulness at the beginning and during each session. I could not recommend Judith's classes more highly,
Yoga classes with Judith have been especially valuable to me as I have aged and have undergone two knee replacements. The rehab process was greatly accelerated by the degree of strength and balance I have achieved with yoga.
I have studied yoga with Judith for over two decades, in studio and for the past two years on ZOOM. The ZOOM classes are so convenient time wise in that we do not have to waste time in traffic to get to the studio. All we have to do is get our props, lay down our mats, take a deep breath and relax. And, we remain relaxed after class as we do not have to travel to our homes.Judith also gifts us videos to keep our yoga minds and bodies in shape in between ZOOM classes. I credit my flexibility of mind, body and spirit to the practice of yoga and to Judith’s knowledgeable, encouraging and inspired teaching and her ever fresh approach. Always bringing us back to ourselves and the moment while stretching and strengthening our spirits and bodies. Yoga is vital to my well being and, honestly, were it not that Judith offers classes via ZOOM, I would miss the fresh approach she brings to every session. Thank you Judith!
I retired near the end of summer and it has taken me a bit of time to get my new freedom figured out. During this time, Judith's yoga classes thru Zoom have been there to help keep me centered. What a great Zoom yoga instructor she has become! Music is one of my favorite parts and she has made sure we have good music. Judith is patient and kind, as well as professional and knowledgeable about yoga and what's good for us. Please give her classes a try. You won't regret it!
I am so glad that I found Judith’s zoom classes! I am able to join in from Chicago and hardly miss a week. Her clear directions, cues and inspiration, not to mention the invitation to have our voice is such a gift. After class I feel restored and rejuvenated. I have more energy to get through the rest of the week. As a yoga teacher myself I appreciate her balance of flow and strength building, focused lesson plans, all creating a supportive virtual community. Judith Valerie’s yoga is a safe haven in this busy world.
I've been taking classes with Judith for years. She is passionate, knowledgeable, supportive and has a great sense of humor! Judith was my first exposure to yoga and my love for it has continued to grow and for that I will be forever grateful to her. Her classes are a combination of many different traditions and each one is so unique. If you're in the Raleigh area and are looking for a great group class atmosphere and an inspiring yoga teacher, Judith Valerie Yoga is for you. Namaste!
