What I’m doing in New York

Tomorrow I leave for New York to stay for a week at the Omega Institute!๐Ÿ˜
There still seems to be a lot of confusion around what I’m doing ๐Ÿ˜‚

This is not necessarily a vacation or a retreat.

Let me fill you in a little bit on what I’ve been up to:

The last few months I’ve been working on starting my own business. You’re probably thinking, “wait haven’t you already done that…” and yes I guess in a way I do work a lot for myself as far as teaching yoga in various locations and doing private sessions and workshops. This is a little bigger.

Each day I’m understanding a little more how much of a calling I have to work with children and bring mindfulness programs into schools. I’ve taught in a few different schools but I want to go bigger and expand. Teaching kids tools to manage stress and use emotional intelligence is very important and close to me. I don’t want to just get my message to only children but I want to understand how this message can be shared to other school teachers, administrators, and even parents. We need this. Can you imagine the change that would happen if just one kid learned how to handle stress more efficiently?

Long story short, I’m going to an intensive training that focuses on yoga & mindfulness in kids, how to reach out to children dealing with trauma, classroom yoga, chair yoga, and a bunch of other new and upcoming healing modalities to teach children (or anyone really).

In the next few weeks I will definitely be sharing more on the specifics of what I will be doing but for now it’s time to learn๐Ÿค“
