Linda Adleson discovered yoga several years ago and from that very first class remains passionate and dedicated. She became a Registered Yoga Teacher at Avalon Studio in Palo Alto in 2006 under the mentorship of Samantha Shakti. Continually drawn to teaching children she became certified as a YogaKids Instructor and has completed the 300 Hour Advanced Training Practicum. This methodology created by Marsha Wenig of YogaKids videos and books blends traditional yoga and its benefits with new theories of multiple learning styles educating the whole child. Through asana, stories, games and crafts the children explore ecology, animals, earth care and life lessons that echo the yogic principles of interdependence, oneness and FUN. Linda then went on to get a Basic Certification from Sonia Sumar in Yoga for the Special Child. Ms. Sumar author of the book Yoga for the Special Child uses the yoke of yoga to help strengthen and empower children with challenges. The benefits of an age appropriate yoga practice are countless. The gifts will last their lifetime.
