Madison McKaySan Francisco, CA
Certified NGY Teacher for: 2-13 yr. olds
I was introduced to Yoga at age 13 through a class in high school, but the class was geared towards adults. Because the class was not designed for my age group, I struggled through the entire 45 minutes and came away believing that Yoga was not for me. I later began teaching so that I could introduce Yoga to kids in a way that is FUN and engaging.
How do you practice Yoga off the mat?
I practice Yoga in many different facets of my life–most prominently through acts of self-love, mindfulness, and kindness towards those around me. By becoming more loving towards myself, I am able to love and accept others just as they are.
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
I believe that my special gift is being able to create an environment in which every child feels loved and accepted, just as they are. I strive to make sure that they understand that I am learning from them just as much as they are learning from me.
