Meet Brittaney

E-RYT 200, 500 RYT, YACEP

Hi, I’m Brittaney Valentino. Thanks for visiting my site. I teach yoga and meditation, dabble in angel therapy, and sometimes I write things about motherhood and yoga. Oh, and I am also the owner of Rooted Nest LLC an online Yoga and Meditation company, based in Wilmington, De. 

 I wandered into my first class in 2013 and started teaching in 2015. What started as awkward curiosity, rapidly transformed into passion and a quest for self-discovery. Finding strength and courage with every step and sit, Whether it be through mental or physical challenges, buried emotion, or stress relief, with every practice I learn something new about myself,

  Through working in different populations and environments, I recognized a need to shift my focus to working towards bringing communities together by correcting the social stigma associated with yoga and meditation for a more inclusive and healing environment for my students. 

 I offer online classes nationwide and have recently started teaching meditation teacher trainings internationally as an Assistant Director of Dharma Moon, an online mindfulness-based learning platform and global community under the direction of Senior Buddhist teacher David Nichtern. 

When not teaching , I enjoy making memories with my family by traveling, cooking, gardening, drawing, and playing.

 Looking forward to meeting and practicing with you!
