Meet your teacher:
After teaching Social Studies in the public schools for 10 years I began teaching Yoga to kids and adults. Soon, I became certified to teach Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga and worked towards my DONA Birth Doula certification. I loved that I could support families in so many areas of their journey: pregnancy, birth, healing your post-baby body, and then teaching children themselves. Mindfulness, step-by-step strategies and support was a key part of all these benchmarks.
After my daughter was born, we struggled. A lot! I felt overwhelmed and exhausted, and worked to became a sleep sense certified consultant to help families teach sleep respectfully. I now use my education training and experience to also help parents struggling with unwanted toddler behaviors in My Mindful Parenting class. You can seek support for both sleep and parenting in my free Facebook community, Vibrant Families.
