New Year, New You

2016 has kicked off with a burst of energy! I see changes happening all around me- friends rethinking their work goals, family going through big changes, and others working to reset old habits to make room for new ones. I am excited for this year. I have some goals (probably too many, but that’s a whole different story), and I feel very motivated to get sh*t done! What I usually struggle with is maintaining that energy over a long period of time. But this year feels different. I will say that much. I am excited to be offering a bunch of new yoga classes for children AND adults… and I’ve been working with a good friend to put together new ideas for workshops for both children and adults, too. It’s a really creative time right now. One of my BIGGEST challenges is managing my business in a “business” way. I really want to learn more about running a small business, steps to take to gain a larger audience and proper ways to network successfully… on top …

Family Yoga Interview

She is an incredible photographer in New Hampshire, and reached out to the community looking for a children’s yoga teacher to photograph and interview. A handful for friends passes my name along to Sarah… so long story short… here is the blog post on Sarah’s website http://www.chasephotonh.com. I have to admit, my son did not want to cooperate the day Sarah came to take photos… his cousin was visiting, and they just wanted to play. However, Sarah was very patient, and she encouraged us to …

What’s with the Children’s Yoga hype?

  Now that I am currently teaching some new yoga classes (which have been so much fun!) I thought it would be helpful to write about WHY people are choosing to sign their children up for yoga classes, and WHAT they are getting out of it. There’s definitely been a surge in popularity with yoga; there’s probably more types of yoga than there are flavors of ice cream now! And on top of it, now there’s infant, toddler, children’s, and teen yoga. Whew! Seriously though, people ask me all the time if kids yoga classes are similar to adult classes. “How do you get kids to sit still for so long?” I explain that depending on the ages of the kids, there is A LOT of movement, music, and games within each class to get kids interested in focusing on their bodies and their BREATH. As kids get older (even Pre-K ages) shorter stints of quiet focus can be added for them to establish peace and awareness within their bodies and minds. However, many children struggle …
