Outschool ACE Educator

Hi there! I'm a former university literature instructor, a certified yoga teacher, and a mom of two young learners. I started teaching literature classes on Outschool in 2019, then began offering yoga classes when I completed my yoga teacher certification. I teach mostly yoga classes today, but be on the lookout for the occasional throw-back literature class! Whether you're a reader or a yogi, I'm excited to welcome you to my classroom.

I offer beginner-level yoga for kids ages seven years and up. My youth yoga classes are always beginner-level to encourage safety and confidence. Every class focuses on positivity and individual strengths, regardless of how long a student has practiced or what other activities they may do. We each have our own strengths, and every yogi expresses their strengths differently in their poses. I provide a watch-and-copy teaching method in which I demonstrate every pose, then walk students through how to copy what I'm doing themselves. Classes are kept intentionally small to allow for individualized attention and pose modifications. 

I've been practicing yoga for twenty years and enjoy yoga outdoors. My kids enjoy practicing yoga, too! By age four, my son was flipping through illustrated yoga textbooks and practicing every pose from cover to cover. My daughter wasn't very interested in yoga until she started taking karate lessons -- Suddenly, then, yoga was a helpful tool for her to perfect her forms and build strength and confidence. No matter where you are in your yoga journey, you're welcome to practice with me!

Yogis, please bring a small or medium stuffed animal of your choice each week! We often use our stuffed animals as fun yoga props. Yogis should come to class each week dressed in comfortable attire. Be prepared to move and stretch. Clothing like sweatpants and a t-shirt is perfectly acceptable. Jeans or similar thick material, however, may feel restrictive. Yoga mats and props are not required, although yogis are welcome to use a mat or towel if they choose.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This weekly yoga class requires physical activity. Yoga students should plan to participate in a location that provides open space free of sharp objects, loud noises, and visual distractions. Students should have enough open space to stretch their bodies without hitting walls or objects around them. Any floor surface is fine; if practicing on a slick or potentially slippery floor, please wear athletic socks with grip, or go barefoot (our feet are great natural grippers!). Please wear comfortable clothing that is loose enough to move in, but fitted enough so that sleeves and necklines don't accidentally slip off of shoulders. Sweatpants and a t-shirt are great options! Students are encouraged to have water nearby. Water breaks will be available regularly throughout practice.

Students are encouraged to bring a small or medium stuffed animal to class each week. These will be used as fun yoga props and should be free of sharp or potentially dangerous parts. A small pillow or rolled up towel is a great alternative for a stuffed animal in this class. Students will be invited to lift their stuffed animals over their heads, hug their stuffed animals to practice big yoga breathing, focus on their stuffed animals during balance poses, etc. Guardians are asked to check that their learners have selected an appropriate stuffed animal or small pillow free of sharp or otherwise dangerous parts.

Our purpose is to gently introduce students to moving their bodies safely and comfortably. This yoga class is intended for beginners and will focus on gentle stretches. There will be no inversions (upside-down poses) or "challenge" poses that encourage hyper-flexibility.

Please consult with your child's physician regarding any previous injuries or medical concerns before enrolling in a yoga class. Students will not be asked to disclose any health issues or previous injuries publicly. Parents are welcome to reach out and notify the instructor of any health concerns or restrictions ahead of class and accommodations can be made.
No outside resources are referenced or required for this class.
