I am a School Psychologist and Yoga Teacher and have melded the two backgrounds to create Youth Yogis, a nonprofit organization bringing yoga and mindfulness to children. Proceeds of the organization benefit yoga and mindfulness for differently-abled children with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges and disabilities. As a School Psychologist, many of the children I work with are reactive and respond with verbal and physical aggression, while others have internalizing symptoms like anxiety or depression. Some have an Autism Spectrum Disorder which affects them in a myriad of ways. I believe that all children can benefit from yoga and mindfulness and especially believe that these practices offer tools for children facing challenges. The proceeds of Youth Yogis fund yoga and mindfulness for these children and I am so grateful to offer them new tools to help them be successful.
