Valerie Ugrinow created The Golden Mind Project School of Yoga in 2016 as a means to share the wisdom of this ancient philosophy in a way that is empowering and applicable to everyday life. To help others ride life’s waves. Facilitator of a 5-star rated 200hr Yoga Teacher Training, Workplace Yoga Programs, and a mentor to fellow teachers worldwide, Valerie is passionate in helping others experience more joy, embodiment, and multidimensional alignment in their daily life and in the lives of their students respectively.

In 2019, Valerie signed on as a Master Trainer for YogaSix and currently provides exceptional programming expertise, new market training, onboarding support, and continued coaching, training, and development of YogaSix teachers and studio owners. She is also a Lead Facilitator of their nationally run 200hr Yoga Teacher Trainings and a mentor to YTT Facilitators.

After surviving breast cancer in 2021, Valerie shows up each day with a full heart of gratitude and a passion to share the tools of this practice with others. Her motto is ‘space and grace!’

Yoga doesn’t create a sense of joy and inner peace.

It returns you to your natural state.

The Golden Mind Project is here to help you remember what you are already made of.


Yoga Teacher Mentorship is also available on a selective basis. If you are a yoga teacher and are interested in working together, please contact me and we can discuss what mentorship can look like.
