  • Namaspa Yoga Community 1135 Northwest Galveston Avenue Bend, OR, 97701 United States (map)

"After teaching children and families yoga for over a decade, I formulated this module to lay a strong background in all things that relate to yoga, children's development and mindfulness. I love to study and incorporate yoga philosophy into all my vinyasa classes, and have spent many hours translating these concepts to make them accessible to children in an setting without watering anything down. I hope this serves to help you "shine more brightly" whether you want to bring yoga into your home, your school or start teaching regularly." ~Deven
