Valeria Teles (pen-name) aka Valeria Koopman, is a fitness trainer who became the author of the Fit for Joy book to share the importance of holistic health.

In Fit for Joy, she starts a conversation about the “true” meaning of health through her professional and personal experiences.

Valeria recently published a new book on Love awareness. This work is comprised of thoughts on self-care, non-duality, self-inquiry, and relational awareness. It brings to light how self-knowledge ignites the process of defining what “Love” is in our lives.

As a podcast host, Valeria explores meaningful truths, ideas, and insights about physical, mental and spiritual health to awaken new ways of thinking that can lead us toward a new way of being well.

Valeria loves to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle to anyone she comes across. She eats mindfully, exercises regularly and enjoys living by nature.

She resides in New York with her husband Christopher.
