Regina has been practicing yoga for many years and it has brought her a deep connection with herself, others, and the community. Before she became a yoga instructor she was a school teacher for 14 years. In her classroom she practiced yoga with her students on a daily basis. She saw how yoga helped kids relax, focus, and become more “in tune” with their body and mind. When children learn techniques for self health, relaxation and inner fulfillment, they can navigate life’s challenges with a little more ease.
She decided to enhance her experience with kids yoga by becoming a certified kids yoga teacher through the Grounded Kids Yoga Program in Atlanta, Georgia. She has also completed her RYT-200 yoga teacher certification at Sacred Thread Yoga in Atlanta. In the past couple years she has taught kids yoga in many diverse settings around the north Georgia area.
She is truly excited to provide meaningful yoga classes that foster self expression, body awareness, positive thinking, and social skills.
