The NGY Teacher Trainings were developed by Jodi Komitor MA, E-RYT 500, RCYT, the Founder and Director of Next Generation Yoga. She is the author of the best-selling book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Yoga with Kids and opened the first Yoga studio (on the planet) created just for kids. As a former Special Education Teacher, Jodi knows the immense value of blending education with movement. She believes that learning can happen in any situation, and is most understood when done kinesthetically.
