Yoga & Mindfulness For Parents
As a parent of 3 kids, including one with sensory integration disorder, I share with you the passion and drive to give your child(ren) the very best. Like me, I know the feeling to want to engage and empower them to make the best choices for themselves, others, and the world in which they live. We call that being OHMazing®. With Yogiños: Yoga for Youth®, this starts from the conception of your child with the OHMazing® choices you make, and continues through integrating mindfulness into your lives on and off the mat through programs like family yoga classes, My OHMazing® Space Tool-boxes for the home (and classroom), and much more.
Since 2008, our yoga for kids and families programs have provided not only a catalyst for cultivating laughter and love, but also strategies to help you and your kids better manage emotion and energy levels. Here are some of the foundations for how we can partner together to be the change we wish to see.
Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® Digital School
The MOSST (Mindful and OHMazing® Strategies for Students and Teachers) curriculum is deesigned for use in schools and is an excellent resource for other spaces, especially among families! MOSST bsupports the implementation and integration of a community-wide skill set of research-based and trauma-informed Mindfulness life-skills. These life-skills include tools and strategies such as intentional breathing, focused attention on thoughts and sensations, and movement routines that create compassionate self-regulation of emotions and energy levels Learn more here.
OHMazing® Retreats & Trainings
Our weekend trainings are like retreats. Here we play, pose, laugh, cry, create, and play some more! Join the hundreds of teachers, therapists, instructors and parents who all come to learn how to help the kids in their lives and discover something else: new tools to help themselves better manage stress, anxiety and cultivate calmness during daily routines. read more

“I want kids and teachers talking about making OHMazing® choices from the moment they walk in the door in the morning to when they leave in the afternoon—and beyond” ~ Scott Eliff, former Superintendent of Corpus Christi Independent School District.
We are fortunate to offer classes to kids and families of all ages in several cities and states — hopefully there are classes in your home-town (if not, let’s work together to make that happen and discuss a possible income stream for you and your family!).
