Here’s a little about me: I’m a wife, mother, athlete, and lover of children’s books!! I have an undergraduate in English (Literary Studies), and an MBA. My background is quite diverse, ranging from facilitating Service Learning programs, developing classroom curriculum, coaching Special Olympics, teaching English to speakers of other languages, and running a small business. All of my experiences and education have led me to this place right now and it has perfectly blended into my passion for teaching children’s yoga and writing curriculum for educators and parents, which I have been blessed to do for 4 years and counting! I absolutely love being able to encourage young ones, of all ages and abilities, to develop healthy habits, learn a deep love for themselves and others, and practice valuable self-regulation skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.
Certificates & Continuing Education:
- Certified Children’s Yoga instructor through the highly respected program of “Next Generation Yoga”.
- Additional Kids Yoga certification through the internationally well-known “Cosmic Kids” Yoga.
- Accelerated Learning/Brain Gym Certification
- Yoga for Emotional Wellness
- Chair & Adaptive Yoga for Educators
I’m a continuing student of yoga myself, and firmly believe in all of the mind, body, & soul benefits it offers, and love that it is an activity that can be done anytime, anywhere, and throughout your whole life! The best part of teaching is watching the absolute joy of the children as they use creative energy and their amazing imaginations to bring the poses to life, dancing and playing, all while learning techniques for balance, strength, focus and stress reduction. The classes are fun, playful, engaging, non-competitive, and students are able to freely express themselves through their own imitation of a pose (corrections are only made if there is a danger of injury–otherwise, there is no “perfect”, and no “wrong” way–just your own way!).
