Why do you teach Next Generation Yoga?
It makes me so happy to share my love and joy of Yoga with children and families. Having my two children gave me the opportunity to experience Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga, but as my children grew I was inspired to find a way to continue to share the benefits of yoga with my family. I love how Next Generation Yoga classes use song and storytelling to bring yoga poses to life for children, and the way NGY Family classes offer opportunities for bonding and connection.
How do you practice yoga off the mat?
Being a stay at home parent who also works part-time is certainly a juggle! I’m currently devouring everything I can to learn more about conscious parenting and how I can bring a mindfulness practice into my daily life. I understand why it’s called a practice!
What do you do when are not teaching NGY classes?
In addition to teaching NGY Kids and Family Yoga classes, I am a parent-teacher at my daughter’s co-op preschool and a reading coach at my son’s elementary school. I’ve also decided it is finally time to learn how to play a musical instrument, so I’m starting with the ukulele!
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
I love to be silly, play games, and sing songs. I bring a light-hearted and playful approach to my classes and aim to create a nurturing environment that focuses on kindness and joy.
