Amy RiderSeattle, WA
Certified NGY Teacher for: 2-13 yr. olds
I teach Next Generation Yoga to promote a more peaceful world. With modern stressors and our digital age, I hope to share practices that connect children with nature and inner peace.
How do you practice yoga off the mat?
As a mother of a 6-year old, I find parenting a rich place to practice yoga off the mat. Together my son and I practice daily mindfulness through breathing, chanting, and giving thanks.
What do you do when are not teaching NGY classes?
When not teaching NGY classes, I enjoy practicing yoga, meditation, dharma study, hiking, gardening, cooking, travel, and gathering with friends and family.
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
A playful spirit! I enjoy imaginative play and adventure as much as young students. Following their lead and being open to play serves to build trust and create a sacred and fun learning space.
