Why do you teach Next Generation Yoga?
Next Generation Yoga is a playful approach to do so many of the things I love! I became a teacher to inspire the life long love of learning. I teach Yoga to spread peace and the benefits of mindful movement. During NGY, we can do all of that while being silly and singing songs!
How do you practice yoga off the mat?
I find little Yoga moments throughout the day. I use my breath to empower body and mind. I practice mindfulness during everyday tasks to bring on awareness.
What do you do when are not teaching NGY classes?
During the day, I teach 2nd grade at a public school in San Francisco. I love to read and practice Yoga.
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
I recognize every spirit is different so I meet each child on their level with openness and compassion. During class, I create a space where children can be themselves and feel safe.
