Val Speidel

Founder of Studio-be, Valerie has offered an ongoing programme of weekly Iyengar yoga classes in Vancouver since 2001. She has practiced yoga since her teens, focusing on the study of Iyengar yoga since 1995, and its teaching since 1998. She has made 5 trips to learn directly from the Iyengar family at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India, has studied with Gioia Irwin, Ingelise Nherlan and Louie Ettling, and continues to study with senior Iyengar teachers as circumstances permit. Her teaching is informed by experience as an RN, by two decades as a freelance graphic designer of books, and by meditation practice. She encourages each student to reach steadily for balance, intelligent movement, and maturity through the practice of yoga, and is committed to helping students progress in a nurturing learning environment. Her classes are direct, engaging, and enjoyable.
