About Me and My Vision for Light in You Yoga:
My educational background includes, a BA from the University of Connecticut in Human Develoopment and Family Relations and a Master of Occupational Therapy, from the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA. I have enjoyed working in a variety of settings including, in-patient mental health, acute and rehabilitation hospitals, home care, and for the past 29 years, public schools.
Employed as an Occupational Therapist in a Connecticut public school system, I am both fortunate and blessed to have the suppport of my administration to integrate children's yoga (mindfulness & meditation) into my work. I teach yoga in regular education classrooms, in small groups, and to individual children who are differently abled. As an occupational therapist, I see children's yoga as a valuable life long tool that enhances, sensory integration, mind-body-breath connection, emotional, and physiological regulation.
It is my intention that the students I teach feel loved, accepted for who they are, and are empowered.
To promote my vision of making yoga an integral part of every child’s life, I am available to travel and lead a RCY 1-3 training within the US and abroad during the months of July & August. Please contact me to schedule a training near you.
Future Vision for Light in You Yoga: I am currently completing the course work and requirements to become an IAYT accredited Yoga Therapist through the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy School. Phoenix Rising Yoga Theapy is a psychodynamically based program that fits under the unbrella of somatotherapy with the belief that we store our past emotions and trauma's in the tissues of our physical bodies. By participating in yoga therapy we can heal ourselves both physically and emotionally. Yoga therapy is often used in conjuncton with traditional (talk) psychotherapy as the two approaches compliment each other. Upon completing this program, I plan to add Yoga Therapy to my Light in You Yoga offerings.
