A Bit About Me

If there is one phrase that describes my career path, it is 'always evolving'. I never imagined that I would be teaching yoga, let alone, yoga for kids. However, after taking a break from my nursing career to raise my family, I decided I missed working with children and families. When the feedback from the community was supportive of bringing more movement and mindfulness into our children's lives, the idea of a kids' yoga business was born. 

My Programs

As with my career, my yoga programs are always evolving. My experiences and education allow me to keep my classes fresh and dynamic.  
Each class I teach is carefully thought out and planned to bring the most enriching experiences to every child. While your child may only be with me for a short time, behind the scenes I have been preparing a class plan that will not only get him/her engaged, moving, and connected, but also teach about larger life lessons. Most of my classes are based on a theme or value that helps promote kindness, compassion, and acceptance of ourselves, others, and our surroundings.

What's With the Starfish Logo?

I strongly believe that our children are our hope for a peaceful world. Every moment we spend sharing our kindness and wisdom with a child is an investment into the future of our planet. Not every child will love my yoga classes and want to return or use what she learned in my classes in her life; however, if I can leave a lasting impact on at least one child in each class, all my hard work will be worth it.

Adapted from The Star Thrower by Loren Eiseley:

While wandering a deserted beach at dawn, stagnant in my work, I saw a man in the distance bending and throwing as he walked the endless stretch toward me. As he came near, I could see that he was throwing starfish, abandoned on the sand by the tide, back into the sea. When he was close enough, I asked him why he was working so hard at this strange task. He said that the sun would dry the starfish and they would die. I said to him that I thought he was foolish. There were thousands of starfish on miles and miles of beach. One man alone could never make a difference. He smiled as he picked up the next starfish. Hurling it far into the sea he said, "It makes a difference for this one." I abandoned my writing and spent the morning throwing starfish.
