I would like to extend a very warm welcome to one of our newest guest contributors, Kelli Love. Kelli works as a yoga and mindfulness specialist at Girls Prep Bronx Elementary. She is lucky to teach a school wide curriculum that embraces yoga and mindfulness as it's own content area. Kelli is a former classroom teacher (M.Ed) in both public and private schools, and is a certified teacher in NY. She began her path of contemplative education with her undergraduate studies at Naropa University, where contemplative learning is integrated into the higher education experience. After training with Little Flower Yoga, Kelli saw the value in Little Flower's simple and structured approach using the five elements as a framework to each lesson. She is excited to bring her 'in the field' observations that highlight reflective teaching, self-reports from students, as well as other everyday teachable moments.*
Kelli's blogs will typically involve stories, photos and short video clips from her experiences teaching kids yoga and mindfulness.
