Valarie Olsen, LMHC, E-RYT 200, AYS Valarie Olsen Counseling & Wellness

Valarie has been practicing yoga for over 20 years in the Ft. Myers area. Back in the 1990’s the only place to practice was in the gyms around town, this is where she met influential teachers that would shape her appreciation and understanding of Yoga. In 2011, she completed yoga teacher training in Bonita Springs and began teaching in studios and community centers locally. As an Experienced Yoga Teacher, Valarie teaches gentle yoga, as well as flow and all levels classes. In 2017 she added Ayurveda Yoga Specialist training to her repertoire. Valarie is a certified meditation teacher and can provide training to individuals and groups.

Valarie is also trained as a licensed mental health counselor spending much of her career working at a local non-profit agency and now currently as an associate in a small private practice. Valarie incorporates her background in mental health, the 8 Limbs of Yoga and interest in neuroscience into her teaching. Combining interests in Yoga, Mental Health and Wellness has led Valarie to study trauma sensitive yoga. She has provided trauma-informed teacher training to scores of trainees as guest faculty in local Yoga Teacher Training programs. Valarie can provide trauma-informed training for YTT’s as well as continuing education for registered yoga teachers.

Rosy Ramirez, RYT 200

Rosy started practicing prenatal yoga in 2010 with her first pregnancy. She has worked with pregnant people and their families since 2011 in different settings as a mental health counselor, doula, childbirth educator, and parenting educator. She decided to train as a yoga teacher in 2018 and then she got certified as a prenatal yoga teacher because she found that practicing yoga during her three pregnancies helped her so much during labor, delivery, and postpartum. 
 
In between pregnancies she found herself practicing restorative yoga as part of her self care routine and recovery. She weaves her experience in mental health counseling, childbirth education, and being a mother into her work as a yoga teacher. She likes to support pregnant and new parents physically, mentally, and emotionally. 
 
She likes to provide parents a mindful, supportive, and nourishing environment, creating a sacred space to connect to themselves, their babies, and the community. She encourages parents to prioritize self care in all forms as an essential part of their motherhood journey.

Shakti Barnhill

Shakti’s love of yoga began when she was 18 and it has been a wondrous love affair for over 40 years. The passion is still growing, I guess they are life partners. 🙂
 
Shakti is known to give of her heart and soul in service of humanity with the ease of an unconscious breath. Always one to ask poignant questions, here is a frequent one. “Tell me,” she smiles and asks, “Where did you meet Yoga and where has she taken you?”

If, by chance, you haven’t met Yoga, Shakti will more than likely provide you with an unexpected and exciting experience that will last a lifetime.
