Welcome to Peaked Hill Studio by Valerie Sonnenthal
Updated September 2022
September always made me sad as a kid. I hated having to spend more time indoors when school started. Already I'm shocked that it's getting dark at 8 p.m. But the seasons have begun to turn and so have things in the studio.
I am grateful to all the new students who have given longevity yoga a try as well as those who managed to squeeze in time for a last minute RevInMo Pop-Up during the last week of August. I have loved working with families and groups of friends who've chosen Sound Journeys
to mark special occasions. Getting to return to Camp Jabberwocky to offer
the regular camp and family camp
healing sound has been a gift for all.
I continue to teach RevInMo's Vitality class weekly to assisted living facilities and private clients. Also I finally have begun RevInMo's Level 1 online training.
Working with a functional nutritional therapist continues. A little tweaking has been necessary since I noticed small dark purple triangles appear along the sides of
my nose, almost like my glasses had left black and
blue. I learned it's about my liver, stopped some supplements, curbed others to once a day, added two new ones and waited a week to see if that made improvements. Besides what was locally available the other supplement only just arrived. I have stronger tasting sensations when I eat and more deeply enjoy both preparing and eating food. I just roasted batches of beets and froze them for the fall.

Master Trainer Colin Donohoo phoned me on a Tuesday from Cape Cod and wondered if the studio would do a Pop-Up. The following Monday, Colin arrived. He taught a 3-day Revolution in Motion intro series plus a Pelvic Floor Fitness (PFF) intro.
I realized that I had not been in a teaching room since I began PFF as a regular practice for the last year and a half. Being in the same room with someone who not only is a clear somatic teacher, but offered hands-on support really allowed me to refine details. Colin hopes to return for his birthday next May, and we’d love to have him.
It's not too late to support the Island Housing Trust (IHT) Summer Benefit Campaign, raising money for affordable housing on Martha's Vineyard. Learn about IHT, what they've accomplished and
