My mission in teaching yoga to young children is to foster creativity, confidence, and a positive attitude around physicality and motion. A foundation in mind-body awareness sparked during early development can last through childhood and adolescence to create strong, healthy individuals. In moving, breathing and playing together, we are connected in our humanity through the somatic experience. I invite parents, educators, and other kids' yoga instructors to use my sample lesson plans, comment on posts, and ask questions or submit their own ideas!
