Michelle GunnellBelle Chasse, LA
Certified NGY Teacher for: 2-13 yr. olds
As a former elementary educator, I know how important it is for kids to have a variety of learning experiences and NGY provides just that! In an NGY yoga class, Kids have an opportunity to learn so much about themselves and the world around them in an exciting way. Plus, its fun to teach and the kids really do love it!!
How do you practice yoga off the mat?
I practice yoga in a variety of ways. I attend classes at the studio I own, Yoga Krewe, and I am also developing my own meditation practice. Being present in each moment of the day isnt always easy, but I find that when I practice my yoga (on and off the mat) it makes it easier to do so.
What do you do when are not teaching NGY classes?
If Im not teaching Next Generation Yoga classes or working at Yoga Krewe, I can most likely be found with my family. My husband and I have 3 wonderful, active children who love to be outside! Being a Wife and Mom is the most rewarding, and sometimes challenging job I have ever had! But I enjoy trying to keep up with all of them!
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
I connect well with Children because they can see that I truly care about them. I cheer their successes, however large or small they may be, because all children need to know that we are rooting for them to succeed! It is amazing to watch them learn new things about the world around us, and about themselves. They are my inspiration to be the best me I can be!
