School Age

My Yoga Background

Adult Yoga

 

I am a Registered 200 Hour Yoga Teacher. I have been practicing yoga regularly for around 5 years now.

I traveled to Nepal and completed here 200 hour there with the company Rishikul Yogshala in 2017. They focused primarily on Hatha and Ashtanga yoga styles but taught everything from laughing yoga to chair yoga as well.

My yoga style tends to be more haha by nature, not moving too quickly, holding poses, and breathing.

I love to teach meditation and breathing (pranayama) classes because it is something I am truly passionate about. Learning to use your breath, be in the present, and let go are things that I believe are essential to leading a peaceful life.

 

Personally, I am working toward incorporating pranayama and meditation into my own personal practice daily.

Kids Yoga

 

I am a currently certified teacher through ChildLight Education. My certifications are for Yoga & Mindfulness for Children and for Teen & Tweens. I am working toward my RCYT 95 hour certification.

Elementary

I have taught in after school programs at several schools for children in K-2, and 3-5. In addition. I taught at a private elementary school during an enrichment block as well. 

Preschool & Pre-K

I have taught classes to preschool children n the Bethel area and also give private lessons to a child to help improve motor skills.
