I am also a certified facilitator for children and teens providing services through the Niroga Institute to local public, charter and private elementary, junior high, and upper schools. Niroga offers Dynamic Mindfulness (Dmind), which is a trauma-informed, science–based, mindfulness program, that is designed to teach children and teachers to develop stress resilience, practice mindfulness and gain coping skills for better mental health and emotional regulation.
In addition to my work through Niroga, I also personally provide mat based yoga to children and teens at public and private schools or individually on a contractual basis. Yoga and DMind are two unique systems of mindfulness that provide students an opportunity to gain useful tools to develop techniques to control emotions, behavior and achieve peace of mind even in the most stressful situations or environment. My hope is that young people will carry these gifts throughout their lives and share their practice with others.
