At a young age, Valentina was fortunate enough to travel. It was during these travels that she first encountered meditation at a Vipassana retreat. She immediately felt an urge to explore this deeper dimension of Being and cultivated a strong meditation practice, serving and sitting in many Vipassana retreats.
Valentina arrived at Hridaya Yoga Mexico in 2012 and fell in love with the encompassing vision and teachings of the Heart. She completed the HTTC in 2014, benefiting from the transmission of the teachings and presence of Sahajananda. Inspired by the depth of the Heart, Vale teaches Hatha Yoga classes, 3- and 10-Day Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreats, and yoga and meditation workshops in Europe, Asia, and America. She is a qualified Tantra teacher and has shared many workshops on conscious love and relating. She teaches in English, Spanish and Italian.
Valentina regularly dedicates time to her personal practice with lengthy periods of solitude and dark room retreats. She recently completed a 50-day dark room retreat.
