Why do you teach Next Generation Yoga?
As a classroom teacher, I have seen the adverse effects of today’s stressful world on our children. I want to give my students tools to deal with the anxiety this stress causes in their everyday lives. NGY is a wonderful way to share Yoga and Mindfulness with kids, and provide my students with a gift that they will use for the rest of their lives!
How do you practice Yoga off the mat?
I am passionate about sharing Yoga and Mindfulness, not just with my students, but also with adults. I hold workshops for teachers and parents, teaching them how to incorporate these practices in their classrooms and with their families. I find time to meditate every day and work hard to focus on staying in the present moment.
What is your special gift in connecting with children?
I have spent the past 33 years teaching children, and have enjoyed every minute of it! I think the secret to connecting with children is to let them know that you really like them and that they are important. I enjoy being able to laugh and have fun with them, while also being a positive role model. Kids are very intuitive and know when you are genuine!
