Why do you teach Next Generation Yoga?
I began my yoga practice when I was 10 years old as a Next Generation Yoga student and have seen the many benefits. I became a NGY instructor so that I could share all that yoga has done for me with other children. NGY is a respected and well-established company for childrens yoga, and I am proud to be a part of it
How do you practice yoga off the mat?
I practice yoga off the mat by reminding myself to take deep breaths in stressful situations, and finding general balance in my day.
What do you do when are not teaching NGY classes?
I am currently a high school student. I recently moved to California from New York City, and enjoy spending time with new friends at the beach. I also enjoy photography and design, and am working on my own fitness clothing line.
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
Since I am a high school student, I am able to understand the mindset of a child and have similar perspectives, which allows me to better connect as an instructor. Kids warm up to me easily and become open to share anything that they may be going through in their lives, which helps me as an instructor to better guide and support them through the practice of yoga.
