Valerie started to practice yoga in 1994 and has been teaching for over two decades. She completed more than eight combined years of rigorous training with her direct teacher and mentor Frans Moors in Belgium, and at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai (India) where she also attended seminars and courses with Mr. TKV Desikachar and his family.

Through her long studies coupled with many years of personal practice she has gained a high level of expertise in the following areas: postures and their modifications (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), energetic seals (mudras), sound, visualisation methods, meditation, counselling, Yoga philosophy, and the pedagogy of teaching all members of the public, including pregnant women, seniors, children, athletes, and people with disabilities. She is also fond of Vedic chanting and practices almost daily.

As a Teacher Trainer certified under the supervision of TKV Desikachar in 2007 she has been training and mentoring yoga teachers from all around the world for the past nine years. The Teacher Training Course she offers is a complete program of self-transformation and spans over 3 years.

As a Yoga Therapist she teaches her students how to incorporate realistic yoga programs in their daily life, dealing with all sorts of health conditions or simply giving them tools to stay fit.

For the past several years she has also coached executives and athletes, helping them cope with physical, mental and emotional stresses. Her vast experience brings her referrals by word of mouth and from the medical community.

Valerie was twice an associate teacher at the annual KHYF Yoga Summit in Austria. She has given lectures and workshops for various schools and organisations such as the Singapore Air Force, the Singapore American School, and more recently True Yoga (Singapore), to name just a few. Valerie was also featured in the health segments of the Discovery Home and Health channel.

In March 2012 she translated the book Liberating Isolation: the Yoga-Sutra of Patanjali by Frans Moors, a commentary of the Yoga-Sutra, published in India. She frequently contributes articles to Namaskar magazine (Hong Kong) and Australian Yoga Life.
