I already recommended the program to many of my friends in the business of yoga, and parents who wanted to learn more on how to support their children through yoga and mindfulness.

What is your current role or position?

Yoga Teacher and Founder of Generation Yogis, providing yoga and mindfulness for children, teens and adults.

What does yoga and mindfulness mean to you?

Yoga is a journey, you have to pass through all the roads to find yourself walking on the right path, even if it takes you a lifetime to reach your destination. It is totally worth it, the practice, the knowledge, the community, the benefits! When in the practice you start searching for the formless, you realize that you want to share this incredible tool with the people in your community. This is when I decided I want to teach children and Teens.

What sparked your interest in Yoga Ed.?

I agree with your philosophy. I respect your approach to children and teens rights in having a better future and a voice to be heard. And what was special about the program is teaching with focus on child development while keeping the authenticity of the yoga practice.

Which Yoga Ed. course(s) did you complete, and when did you complete it?

I completed all three courses between February and July 2020.

What is your biggest takeaway from the course or program? What knowledge, insights, or skills did you gain?

I learned a lot from all three courses. It was very informative and practical. My biggest takeaway would be the science-based approach that was explained thoroughly all through the course, and linking the class plan to the physical, emotional and social development to the children and adolescents.

How have you implemented the program in your life? Have you received any feedback about the course from your students?

Yes I did. My first students were my own kids, and it was a great help during our lockdown. I started teaching online and currently approaching schools to start implementing the program as soon as things start to get back to normal.

Would you recommend this course or program to others?

I already recommended the program to many of my friends in the business of yoga, and parents who wanted to learn more on how to support their children through yoga and mindfulness.

Is there anything else you would like to share that we have not covered in your profile?
