Why do you teach Next Generation Yoga?
NGY is the perfect complement to my formal background in Human Development and Family Studies with an Emphasis in Early Childhood Education degree from the University of Utah. I have experienced the chaos that children are facing in today’s world with my students I hope to offer peace and calm through Yoga practice. I believe that Yoga is for all and that it complements all other activities in a child’s life.
How do you practice Yoga off the mat?
I try to channel the moments of self-reflection and self-love that I experience while I am on my mat, which allows me to be honest and love others more fully.
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
I respect and honor children. I believe that there is so much to be learned from a child. Also that an empowered child has an increased ability to be a force of goodness, love, and understanding of themselves and those who surround them.
