Description

Children who are balanced in their body and brain do better in school, are more resilient, and feel more calm. Research shows yoga improves brain functioning, focus, balance, proprioception, the vestibular system, physical strengthening, and sensory desensitization. Studies show positive changes in brain patterns by quieting the mind and moving the body in mindful ways. Attend and learn calming breathwork individualized to each child’s diagnosis and symptomologies; active and restorative yoga poses and sequences; and specific mindfulness techniques to help children with autism, sensory disorders, and neurological disorders.

She now treats adults and children in a variety of healthcare and educational settings and treats people privately using yoga as her main therapeutic modality.
