Who Will Kids Learn From? Kids of all ages will feel welcome in Libby’s classes as they are invited into a warm, engaging, purposeful, and fun atmosphere. Libby’s sincere commitment and heartfelt desire to support all learners combined with her background in education, psychology, yoga, meditation, and diverse experiences in her work and life create a teaching style that comes from the “head and the heart”. Differentiating instruction to meet the diverse needs, learning styles, and interests of the students she works with makes teaching both rewarding and exciting for Libby.
Libby holds her kids yoga certification for ages 2-7 with additional training modules completed for teaching learners ages 8-14. Her personal yoga practice officially began in 2005 and she quickly developed a deep appreciation for the many benefits it brought into her own life, as well as, for the teachers who shared their knowledge, time, talents, and compassion with her. Her experience with yoga combined with her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and Master’s of Education from Westminster College in Salt Lake City, UT create an outstanding foundation from which to teach children yoga from.

Ayurveda Week with Arun Deva
DATES: January 13-19, 2018
Experience a week of:
Emotional Intelligence Workshop • Vinyasa Krama Yoga • Ayurvedic Consultations
with Master Practitioner, Arun Deva, DASc, AYT
How do we understand the emotional body? In āyurveda the mind begins in the heart, reaches downwards into the gut and upwards into the brain. The connections are easy to see as seats of instincts, feelings and sensation/thought. All our instincts and our rational thinking revolve around the mediating emotional state. When our emotional state is one of creativity, innocence and joy, we see beauty, feel compassion and instinctually open to universal waves of loving. When our emotions are dominated by fear, anger and grief, we become susceptible to the 6 enemies of the mind: lust, rage, greed, jealousy, envy and delusion. After years of personal practice, study and teaching on the relationship of the emotional body to our health and our peace of mind, the results I have gained offer clear, succinct information on the use of yogic tools. We will do a yoga practice to show their effectiveness in transforming fear, anger and grief into creativity, innocence and joy.DETAILS
