I have a Master's degree in Education and began working in public schools in 1997 as a School Psychologist. I began teaching Kids Yoga after training with Yoga Calm.

I have also completed trainings with Kidding Around Yoga, Mindful Schools, ParaYoga Nidra with Rod Stryker, Restorative Yoga training with Jules Mitchell and Jillian Pransky Restorative 101. I completed my 200 RYT training with Satyam Yoga school. 

I am passionate about sharing the benefits of Yoga, mindfulness meditation and creativity  with all ages,

but especially with young people. 

Sunshine smile guided meditation:

Getting more still- Listen to chime until you can’t hear it anymore…. Begin to notice your breathing- feeling your body moving gently as you breathe in and out- connecting the breath once again to the space around your heart.          Begin to relax your toes…... feet…... legs….. belly….. your chest…...  your whole back……..softening your shoulders…….. down your arms……..all your fingers…. Now relax your  face and let the back of your  head feel heavy.  Your whole body feels heavy & relaxed…….. 

Picture in your mind a favorite person…... Notice how you feel in your body and in your heart when you think of this person…. Begin to sense or see this feeling in your heart as a golden light -like sunlight…….  Begin to send this feeling, this happy light, to that person. Maybe it feels like a smile or  a hug that you are sending……. As you breathe in and out imagine sending this sunlight smile from your heart to this person…...  Now  let this feeling, this “sunlight smile” spread out from your heart out to yourself- to your  whole body -from your heart out towards your fingers, down to your  toes and up  to the top of your head…... Filling your whole body…. sending yourself this feeling of sunny happiness, calmness and peace….. Resting here quiet and still until you hear the chime                 -by Liz Abendroth, MEd,RYT
