    Yoga, Children's Yoga, Yoga for Children with Autism/Spectrum

    I started practicing yoga when I realized I needed more balance in my life. After being an athlete for many years, my mat was the only thing that helped me find stability when I let the stress of daily life get the best of me. I was hooked after my first class and became a dedicated student at Juluka Yoga. I now suggest yoga as the answer to everyone’s problems!

     

    I also have a background in education and am currently receiving my M.Ed. in Special Education to continue enriching the lives of students with Autism. Along with my 200-RYT, I am certified in Children’s Yoga and Yoga for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. It amazes me to see that yoga can not only benefit adults, but the young as well. My future goals are to obtain a certification in pre/post-natal yoga and incorporate yoga into the classrooms!

     

    My classes consist of strengthening but mainly opening poses that break down the walls of us seeing the good things ahead. At the end of each class, you’ll feel relaxed and ready to start your day!
