I love to learn, talk, and teach about the mind-body connection, sensory regulation, and wellness; with an emphasis on populations with complex needs, diverse abilities, trauma, and autoimmune disease. For this reason, I offer workshops on topics of yoga, mindfulness, parenting, and sensory wellness.
TheraPLAYoga workshops are designed for public and private groups, as well as professional development. Workshops include experiential learning, movement, and meditation. As a result, leaving you connected, informed, and empowered.
I’m a life-long learner and therapy integrated, homeschool mom to a child with complex needs and diverse abilities. So becoming a teacher, educator, and advocate has been natural to me.
Mindful Parenting Workshops
Firstly, I teach parents how to create an environment for communication, collaboration, and connection. As well as build confidence in parenting with compassion, intention, and respect. I combine TheraPlaYoga, mindful parenting practices, and positive discipline techniques to provide effective tools for supporting a child with challenging behaviors and dysregulation. Meanwhile teaching parents practical, non-intimidating ways to practice self-care through yoga and mindfulness.
Professional Development Workshops
Secondly, I teach educators, therapists, clinicians, and caretakers; how to create a peaceful environment for progress for children with special needs. Workshops provide effective tools for integrating yoga, mindfulness, positive behavior strategies, and social-emotional learning into the classroom, therapy session, and more. As well as treat your staff with yoga and mindfulness strategies for self-care and stress management.
In addition to workshops, I offer private mentorship. I mentor discerning moms in building unshakable confidence in parenting with compassion, intention, and respect. As well as, help yoga teachers with adapting practices and language to be safe, accessible, and inclusive for people with special needs.
I love to talk about the impact of yoga and mindfulness practices in an uncensored, authentic, and engaging way. Speaking engagements offer experiential wisdom and tips on varying topics.
Book me to teach or speak via Zoom, Instagram Live, or Facebook Live for specialty workshops and talks. In addition to virtual, I offer in-person workshops in Lansing and Mid-Michigan.
