Val Weaver was first introduced to yoga when she was 18 years old during a trip visiting friends on the east coast, and loved it! She continued to practice on her own at home and occasionally dropping in at studios from time to time. Her children are a huge inspiration to her practice and teaching. In 2010, Val decided to enroll in a teacher training program St. Louis, MO to broaden her knowledge and deepen her practice. She received her 200-hour teacher training certification and graduated from Bella Yoga~ Yoga Alliance. Her training has prepared her to teach all types of yoga and breathing classes and has enabled her to experiment with each type. Currently, she is co-owner and instructor at Hot 4 Yoga LLC in Edwardsville, IL. Val strives to help students feel comfortable and safe on their mats as well as encouraging them to continue to grow and deepen their yoga practice.
