What makes Joyful Hearts Mindful Yoga unique is the educational content I weave into each of my yoga lessons. As a certified Children & Teens Yoga Therapist for anatomy, physiology, socio-psychology and neuroscience, teaching a young person why a deeper awareness of mind-body is important for self-regulation; demonstrating how to follow the breath moment by moment during a yoga flow, to rebalance the nervous system, are just two examples of the ways I encourage young people to embody the full benefits of a regular Mindful Yoga practice for optimal well-being.
Students are encouraged to play to their strengths and hone their individual Multiple Intelligences (innate in all of us) during their yoga practice, appreciating their love of music, art, maths, science, literacy and nature in fun and pioneering ways.
In the true sense of 'yoga' which literally means to 'unite', Joyful Hearts yoga holistically nurtures the growing needs of the physical, mental (intellectual), emotional, social and spiritual health of our young people.
Because children and teens can process more information when they feel happy and relaxed, every Joyful Hearts class is wholeheartedly experiential! My mission for Joyful Hearts is to provide a safe and comfortable space for each young person, to meet them exactly where they are in their young life, and to awaken their inner spirit.
With regular practice, Mindful Yoga leads young people to feel:
