As a way of healing and trying to understand life, Valeria began her interest in yoga after a life-threatening illness at the age of 16. While studying to become a nutritionist, she began to show interest in Eastern philosophies and alternative approaches to healing the body. She studied TAO, holistic, chinese and quantum medicine. Valeria found her calling in kriya yoga and meditation and was in search of learning and practicing more to help advance her technique. Before leaving for India, she decided to reroute her trip and come to NYC to meet Sri Dharma Mittra. She was immediately drawn to his teachings and decided to stay in NY.
Learning from her beloved Guru, she quit her job in Guadalajara and immersed herself in the Dharma Yoga Center. After completing her 200, 500, 800 and 1000hr LOAY teacher training at Dharma, her new life began. With hardwork and dedication in her practice, Valeria found herself teaching at the very yoga studio that called her name almost three years prior; Dharma Yoga center. She continues to teach the way of Dharma both at the center and privately, and hopes to influence students from all over the world the same way she had been; so is the circle of life.
“Knowing and being able to learn from Dharma has been a blessing; he changed my life for good, I will forever be grateful to him and all the beautiful people at Dharma center NY”
