“As a Kundalini yoga teacher, I recognize the value of empowering youth with tools to manage life’s challenges. Through teaching breathing techniques, meditation and the eight principles, we teach our youth to calm their minds. As a Y.O.G.A for Youth-NC advisory board member, my mission is to promote and expand the program. I would love to one day see yoga be part of the curriculum in every school in our nation.”
