Christian Valeriani , CYT, RYT is the Director and owner of EvenFlow Yoga located in West End, Long Branch, NJ. He received training with Sivananda Yoga, the Omega Institute, Kripalu, Seane Corn and his teacher, Dharma Mittra.
Following many successful years as a retail broker with Smith Barney and Merrill Lynch, Christian made a pivotal professional and life shift, devoting his energies and intentions to the practice of Yoga. The result was a multitude of various certifications in the Yoga field, thousands of hours logged from teaching group classes and private instruction, the birth of EvenFlow's 2,800 square foot ocean view studio and, most importantly, a commitment to deliver the traditional message of Yoga: Love, compassion and freedom for all living beings.
In addition, combining business acumen with spiritual passion, Mr Valeriani and business partner, Jeanie Coomber, created the stress management/communications consulting firm, Sama Business solutions in 2008. Since it's inception, Sama has been contracted by Fortune 1000 and small companies to help identify their passions, enhance workplace performance and increase overall wellness. Sama will be offering corporate retreats at EvenFlow Yoga starting in the Fall of 2011.
A native of Colts Neck, Christian holds a BA in English Literature from Rutgers College, Rutgers University.
