Why do you teach Next Generation Yoga?
Yoga is everything and everything is yoga! I believe that yoga inspires everyone – young and old – to be a better version of themselves. Yoga teaches and cultivates self-love, patience, mindfulness, and creativity. I want everyone to know how magical yoga is. Yoga is fun and the energy is contagious!
How do you practice Yoga off the mat?
Every day all day. I practice yoga practices and yoga poses on my own, with my toddler daughter, and in my first-grade classroom.
What do you do when you’re not teaching NGY classes?
If I’m not teaching in the classroom or teaching yoga, I’m probably on an adventure! I love traveling and new experiences. Yoga, travel, and family time are the three things that feed my soul!
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
I’m a mother, a classroom teacher, and a children’s yoga instructor. I believe in building connections with each other as I know we are all unique and have something to offer. I believe in creating opportunities for growth, patience, persistence, and having fun- downright silliness fun. I believe that we’re better together and that when we’re learning and having fun, that’s when the magic really happens!
