Chogaflow™ has increased my strength and flexibility, and improved my balance. Through breathing exercises I have learned how to calm my mind and handle life’s daily stresses so much better.

Even if you dislike exercise, Valerie Rogers is reason enough to take Chogaflow™. Her warmth, compassion and sense of humor are infectious and will make you believe you can do anything.

Almost immediately, I noticed the improvement in my range of motion, after attending Valerie’s Chogaflow™ classes. I often assist in moving hospital patients at work and my improved motion and strength help protect me from injury and make my movements more efficient.

As a 73 year old with Parkinson’s disease patient, I cannot tell you how helpful Chogaflow™ has been to me. It keeps my joints and muscles limber and relaxed. Also assists in maintaining good balance. I look forward to each and every class.
Ann, age 73
I am an avid golfer and play pick-up basketball on a weekly basis. Since taking Valerie’s classes, my increased flexibility has helped my golf game tremendously and my knees no longer ache after basketball. I truly believe this is a result of practicing Chogaflow™.
Mike, age 48
I find Valerie’s Chogaflow™ class to be the perfect workout for me, since poses are adapted to each person’s abilities. I am more flexible and I especially notice my improved strength. My posture is significantly better and my positioning on my bicycle has improved for my long distance rides.
Pamela, age 59
I worked in the yard for 4 hours yesterday. I am positively amazed at the strength in my legs which was almost nonexistent just a couple of months ago. As I bend and reach with confidence, I find myself noticing that I am using the same moves that Valerie teaches in Chogaflow™. My balance is so improved that I don’t worry about falling anymore even as I am doing contortions to cut the deadwood out of my climbing roses. I literally have gained my life back. I feel that I am walking on solid ground once again. Just getting out of my recliner was a huge effort just last December.
Thank you more than I can say for your dedication to developing this practice and for sharing it with the rest of us. My body feels so much better–lighter, moving more easily, much less tightness, more strength and balance. Your gentle and loving words during the sessions mean so much to me. My soul and body are loving Chogaflow™. Thank you so much for this gift.
As a black belt in Koei Kan karate, I have found that Chogaflow™ has helped my flexibility and stamina. I move better and breathe better. I also noticed that I focus better. Valerie is very encouraging and patient as a teacher. I would highly recommend Chogaflow™.
Tim, age 52
Valerie is the best teacher I have ever practiced with. Chogaflow™ has been so good for me because I struggle with getting up and down from the floor. My posture has improved and my whole body feels better. I know I will continue to improve with practice.
Mae, age 84
At 62 years of age, with flat feet, bad knees and stiff joints, and far too regular migraines, I needed HELP!
Thank goodness for Valerie Rogers’ ChogaFlow™ DVD! Since practicing ChogaFlow™, usually twice per week, I find I am walking in a more correct, aligned way that means a lot less leg pain. The practice of raising my toes to get the arches in my feet raised and thigh muscles “hugging” my bones has helped enormously with strengthening my knees. Every day I try to remember to pull my chin back slightly so I am working and playing with less stress on my neck and my headaches have lessened by 50 percent! Every time I go back to the class or the DVD all these things are reinforced and every day in every way I am feeling better and better.
Practicing Chogaflow with Valerie Rogers has changed my life for the better in so many ways. Being 64 and overweight, I was pretty convinced that I had doomed myself to a life of inactivity and weakness. In my mind, yoga was only for the young, physically strong and beautiful, and I am none of that. What could possibly be gained from attempting yoga if I could not even get up from the floor because my knees hurt? I went to Chogaflow in March of 2012 and was immediately hooked.
Valerie pays close attention to each student’s individual needs, constantly reminding us to trust our own instincts and not aggravate old injuries or weaknesses while building new strengths. She demonstrates and explains in detail how to accomplish each pose. She circulates among the class offering tips, and helps us make little corrections that can make a big difference in improving strength, flexibility and balance. Valerie brings out the best in her students, and does so in a kind and loving way.
There is little sitting in Chogaflow and we do sweat. We mostly practice standing poses and always have the chair available for added stability. Chogaflow has helped me to restore a great measure of confidence in my physical and mental abilities. And with that confidence I have experienced a measure of joy beyond my imagination.
