My yoga journey began about 6 years ago when I was having constant feelings anxious and stress. I then tried my first yoga class and I have never looked back. I love the way yoga makes me feel strong, not only physically but spiritually and emotionally as well. It is an amazing practice that enables you to nurture your body on every level. When I realized how much yoga had inspired and changed my life, I knew I had to pass this feeling on to others around me. I completed 350 hours of Yoga Teacher Training 4 years ago. I have been teaching Children’s Yoga around the community for 4 years now and it is a passion of mine. I recently graduated from the Early Childhood Education program at Durham College and I am a full time Designated Early Childhood Educator in a school board. Being an ECE, I see first hand the different ways children are stressed while in school and spending their days in the hustle and bustle of the world. Yoga is a technique that I have used in my classroom and the children are always excited to take part. Yoga is an excellent way to foster a child’s self-regulation skills, develop their patience, increase their self-esteem and of course the list goes on. My favorite part of teaching children the practice of yoga is seeing what they have learned not only about yoga and the poses but what they have learned about themselves. Yoga is amazing for everyone and anyone!
