I present at conferences on strategies for bringing mindfulness and yoga to children in early childhood. I hold workshops for preschools and early childhood centers to help teachers learn how to teach mindfulness and yoga for the social-emotional awareness of their students. I also visit early childhood centers and work as a guest teacher, teaching their students strategies for mindfulness and yoga.
