Empowering the world of the child

I have an abundance of respect for educators and staff trying to balance the needs of many children, promote learning, and a cohesive classroom. My yoga for schools tools can help teachers and staff nurture their well-being, and support a healthy and respectful school community. I am a firm believer in supporting the entire world of the child for consistency, and to truly empower children of all ages.

Since 2012, I have been teaching yoga in schools around Vancouver, BC and creating custom programs for educators and staff. My background in coaching, training, and Instructional Design, combined with my extensive yoga teaching experience, allows me to craft unique programs tailored your community’s needs. I work with daycares, pre-schools, elementary and secondary schools. I am able to support your community with yoga-based techniques around Vancouver and beyond. Below you will see a few offerings to support your community through incorporating yoga + wellness practices. You can read more about me here.

Benefits of Yoga in School Settings:

  • Establishing healthy boundaries from a trauma informed perspective
