Teaching Artist Statement
Teaching yoga is about exploring a whole person: body, mind and breath. When students feel aligned in these three areas, their world expands. I feel extremely fortunate to be in a position to introduce life time habits of movement and mindfulness to children. These habits help nurture the spirit and calm the mind so it is easier to weather the storms that humans face on a daily basis. I am also happy to offer children at the Conservatory a safe and caring place to explore and reach their potential in a noncompetitive environment.
