Location: Blue Bell, PA (greater Philadelphia area)
Licensed NGY Teacher for: 2-13 year olds
Why do you teach Next Generation Yoga?
I learned Yoga as a child and I have always wanted to pay it forward. Next Generation Yoga helped me see how much fun it could be and how many ways there are to do it.
How do you practice Yoga off the mat?
I use breathing exercises when I’m stressed or afraid and I try to think of an affirmation for the day each morning. I try to approach everyone with compassion.
What do you do when you’re not teaching NGY classes?
I hang out with my daughter and my husband. We often end up dancing in the kitchen or throwing mini-concerts in the living room. I work as a writer for an energy (as in electricity) consulting company in content marketing and social media. I love cooking, reading, gardening, hiking, poetry, and video games like Zelda and Mario Kart.
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
I try to really see them and acknowledge and respect them as I would an adult. I love to bring out their creative side and see the amazing things and ideas they produce.
