Gianna Vallefuoco is an artist, entrepreneur, and mindfulness teacher.
As co-founder and creative designer of Vallefuoco Contractors - a custom tile installation company in the Washington, DC area since 1999, Gianna has spent over two decades helping clients create intentional and meaningful spaces, and now writes their INTENTIONAL SPACES blog. Using her undergraduate studies in Psychology and Figurative Oil Painting, she's assisted thousands of clients in harnessing and expressing their creative goals. In 2014, Gianna expanded her creative skills beyond the tile industry, as she incorporated mindfulness into her own life. She began sharing how to build meaningful lives, not just meaningful spaces. Gianna is a certified Meditation Teacher, Therapeutic Art & Life Purpose Coach, Reiki Level 1 and 2 Practitioner, and 200RYT Yoga Teacher, providing workshops across multiple trades and demographics.
As an entrepreneur at heart, Gianna is also owner of Beyond Gifted - a wellness-based gift portal, and is founder of Disability Inclusion Guild - a 501(c)3 dedicated to breaking social barriers for people with disabilities. Each of Gianna’s endeavors promotes compassion, gratitude, and interpersonal connection. She believes mindfulness has a place in all industries. Whether she brings daily gratitude practices to her construction employees, teaches mindfulness to the staff of Best Buddies, or launches inclusion programs in schools, Gianna is sharing her insight.
Gianna has fashioned her own methodology to empower others to manifest their limitless potential. By encompassing art, yoga, neuroscience, and spirituality, she teaches how to live in your “flow state, when your every action becomes both effortless and limitless.” Gianna uses both neuroscience and mindfulness principles in her meditation trainings to share how to rewire new neural networks in the brain. She believes we are all artists, with innate creative potential, and have the ability to craft our ideal lives. Gianna resides in North Bethesda, MD, and will expand her teaching internationally as of October 2020.

RETREATS OF A LIFETIME
In October 2020, join me for the RETREAT OF A LIFETIME in Tuscany, Italy. Spend 5+ life-changing days learning to manifest your ideal life in Montepulciano, Italy at the renowned Relais Ortaglia with Sandy Abrams, Elia Nichols and me. Join us to learn concrete ways to optimize your life through breath, voice, posture, intuition, and creativity.
In addition to improving our lives, our extraordinary agenda includes a variety of unforgettable experiences. View the Tuscan countryside from a hot air balloon, go truffle hunting for rare culinary treasures, sample Montepulciano’s divine wines, and learn to eat intuitively as we taste some of Italy’s most cherished cuisine. Enjoy movement and yoga (all levels) while looking out at the breathtaking Italian landscape. More info to follow soon…
Living in 2020 in the western world requires a great deal of conformity to the social norms of our surroundings.
We are constantly asked to block our innate calling in order to do what's expected of us. This includes how we choose our friends, partners, religious beliefs, studies, professions and our belief systems as a whole. We attach to the identity we create so we can feel like we fit in. Unfortunately, this often means abandoning our intuitive calling, our "truth."
After years of feeling unfulfilled, despite a seemingly successful life, I had to search deeply to seek my own truth and reconnect with my calling. I found a way to weave my existing life into my new life as a healer, empowering others to create their own ideal lives. If I can do it, anyone can. I'm here to help you find your own intuitive path and a deeply satisfying life.
