Awilda is a Yoga Teacher, Spiritual Advisor and Success Coach whose mission is to empower and uplift. Her yoga classes are a marriage of alignment, self-expression, and mindfulness. Children are encouraged to connect with themselves and the energy of their classmates. Laughter Postures and Yoga games are often used to meet the students at their level. She creates an environment where children feel comfortable exploring shapes with their bodies, getting in-touch with their emotional states, and connecting with self-expression in an authentic way.
Awilda has worked with Children for over 15 years. She believes that the earlier children are exposed to new experiences, different perspectives, and varied ways to approach situations the better prepared they are to express themselves as adults. She wanted to share yoga with kids, and wanted to be trained by professionals who cared about the whole child. The Grounded Yoga teaching method offers a way to reach children that does not diminish their intelligence. The Grounded method also offers a unique approach explore sensitive topics with children in a playful and concrete way.
