Why do you teach Next Generation Yoga?
My desire is to share my love of Yoga with kids and help them to embrace their full potential; and to live their lives with joy. When you are joyful, you shine in body and mind. I am truly inspired by the precious, creative minds and crazy energy that kids bring to the practice of Yoga. I want them to know that the world holds great gifts for them and in turn, have them realize the gifts that they can bring to the world.
How do you practice yoga off the mat?
Everyday, I am grateful for another day and at the end of the day I exhale all the positives, negatives, struggles, stress, tiredness, and things I have no control over. I let it just be, as that’s the day God intended for me.
What do you do when are not teaching NGY classes?
I am part of the prayer shawl and music ministry at my church. I love Broadway plays, interior design, retail therapy and travel. I am also a part-time virtual marketing assistant.
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
My calm and silly child-like demeanor translates into a “fun flow.” I am committed to my belief that we are ALL beautiful and I seek to share that message of self love, self care and positive thinking that will benefit kids now and in the future.
