Why do you teach Next Generation Yoga?
I love Yoga! I am passionate about how Yoga and mindfulness can support our young people in developing healthy bodies and minds in a fun and amazing way, setting a solid foundation for positive living and well-being.
How do you practice yoga off the mat?
I practice Yoga off the mat by taking all of the lessons from Yoga (strength, courage, letting go, making mistakes, focusing internally, and so many more) and trying to bring these into my everyday life and community.
What do you do when are not teaching NGY classes?
Outside of teaching and practicing Yoga, I enjoy being with my husband and three children, reading, dancing, cooking, hiking, and finding beauty and wonder in nature.
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
I adore children and so appreciate their capacity for joy, fun, curiosity, and living life. Engaging with kids is a wonderful reminder to slow down, have fun, and just be. I learn just as much from kids as they learn from me.
