A desire to explore my body and mind through physical practice, breathwork and learning to be present. I’ve always been physically active but yoga brought my into the equation and opened up completely new experiences.
I recently had the honor of teaching a very special group of middle schoolers at Hopewell Middle School during their Exceptional Children’s Week.
Some of these children are in wheel chairs, some are on autism spectrum, some were verbal and others not at all. The classes also include teens with down syndrome and other special needs.
Flash back almost seven years ago…
I was in fourth grade and I went to school at Fernbank Elementary. A few times a week we would have these great pauses from academic work, in which we would do yoga.
Today we officially added our “United States of You Curriculum” to the Dekalb County School Network and created official Student Learning Objectives (SLO’s) for the State of Georgia.
