Val Vibes Tribe - in memory of Valerie Martinelli

Valerie Martinelli, mother of Krysta-Lyn Martinelli and aunt of Phylicia Proulx (maiden - Denson) lost a year-long battle to stage four lung cancer in December of 2013, 16 days after her 50th birthday.  Valerie was the matriarch of her entire family and the definition of a  lady.  She was a class act and respected, loved and leaned on by every friend and family member she had.  Krysta and Phylicia both have struggled over the years since their loss with anxiety, depression and PTSD caused by her devastating passing.  Over the past year, they both have discovered their love for yoga and the sense of peace and strength they have gained since starting their practice.  It truly has been a light in their life, a miracle, helping both of them mentally, spiritually, and physically.

While the mission of Yoga Reaches Out is to provide wellness (yoga, meditation, counseling, etc.) to families and children of the sick children at Boston Children's, Krysta and Phylicia, as the children of Valerie, know from first hand experience the importance of yoga in anyone's life (sickness or health).   Please consider donating in Valerie's memory, to help others find peace and strength. Please also consider taking up yoga!

Amanda Norman, Krysta's best friend was a huge inspiration to Krysta's new found love for exercise and yoga. She also joins the Val Vibes Tribe team! Krysta couldn't "do" life without her!

We'd love to share our experiences with you <3 Peace, Love, Namaste - Krysta, Phylicia and Amanda 

Boston Children's provided info:

 We're participating in Yoga Reaches Out because we want to help Boston Children's Hospital continue its amazing work for kids and families. During this day-long yogathon, 1,000 yogis will come together for an inspirational day of yoga, music and fundraising - all to help bring peace and healing to others.

This year your gift will benefit the Wellness Program at Boston Children's.

Support our mission by joining our team of yogis - or by giving a gift to one of our team members.
