I am very passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of children with the gentle practice of yoga & meditation. Since 2001, I have been teaching these simple techniques to school children in and around my community.
Every class is a learning experience in which children gain the tools to build, develop and maintain a healthy body & a happy mind. At Glowing Kids yoga, i help to 'sow the seeds' for their journey through life and foster a generation of children that "GLOW" with vitality and positivity. It brings their marvellous inner light that all children have to the surface. I envisage a community of individuals who can apply the principles of healthy life skills, exercise, meditation and yoga into their everyday lives. Happy, healthy, responsible people are usually more concious of their actions towards themselves, each other and the planet as a whole.
