Yoga and bird fun for the whole family! Enjoy a nature walk on Adriana Hess Wetland Park's gravel loop. In class, kids and grownups will playfully learn ways to care for our bodies (yoga breathing techniques and mindful movement), care for our community (conservation and clean-up), and care for nature (learn fun facts about NW birds).
Class is geared toward 3- to 6-year-olds and their grown-up
Younger and older siblings welcome
Waivers for participating children to be filled out in person

My yoga path began in 2000 in a college-town in North Texas. Initially I was drawn to the physical challenge. The strange shapes and newfound strength in my body was exhilarating. Over time, the appeal of my yoga practice shifted. I'm drawn to the silence and stillness when feeling overwhelmed. I feel creative and energized after a challenging flow. I am connected and find community when traveling or moving some place new. There are so many styles of yoga. So many shapes and ways to practice. As a student, I love learning how to study and care for my self (body and mind) which allows me to care for those around me and beyond.
In 2012, I completed a 200-hr Anusara TT with Silvia Mordini's Alchemy of Yoga and a 200-hr Power Yoga TT with CorePower Yoga. The former embraced creativity, flow, and the healing and transformative powers of yoga while the latter offered structure, form and technique. In my classes I blend these styles. I teach heart-centric, intentional flows using clear cues and offering many ways to personalize. I also completed Next Generation Yoga's kids training so a little silliness and play can be expected as well.
