Friendly Yoga nurtures inner and outer friendliness in a positive, accepting environment. Classes are a fun blend of quiet and active yoga games, creative expression, and simple meditation exercises tailored to the age, developmental needs, and interests of the children in each class.
I am a certified ChildLight Yoga instructor, and I have also received training in Creative Relaxation Yoga Therapy for Children with Autism and Special Needs. I study an eclectic mix of yoga and meditation techniques, and my teaching draws from what gives me peace and joy in my own practices. My experience as a classroom teacher and a parent help me develop classes that meet individual needs and generate positive group dynamics.
I teach in yoga studios, classrooms, community settings, and private homes.
I love to talk about kids and yoga (and art and puppies and ice cream), so please contact me with any questions or suggestions. ellen(at)friendly-yoga(dot)com.
