Kind Colette McCarty has been participating in yoga clubs since she attended Fernbank Elementary. Now a sophomore at Druid Hills High School, Colette made her way into the 1st period yoga class last semester. Curious, Thoughtful, Creative, and Aware. Colette flourished in yoga. Her inner light radiated from within as she continuously sought to understand herself and those around her. Yoga became an integral part of Colette’s life; she enrolled in classes outside of school and shared her knowledge with her family. Colette found that the practice of yoga in its entirety transformed her inner world. She uncovered playfulness, strength, focus, courage, and peace. This new center from which Colette lives should be shared, so when I asked her if she would like learn how guide others in art of yoga, she jumped on board!
Over this past few days, Colette joined the Grounded Kid’s Yoga Module One training. This specific training is the first step on the path towards teaching children’s (pre-teen & teen) yoga, and the perfect place for Colette to begin as she hopes to bring more yoga to Druid Hills High.
After immersing herself in the teaching philosophies and methods of Grounded Kid’s Yoga, Colette had to co-lead a children’s class with her fellow trainees. Below, you can see Colette bringing out her sacred silliness as she teaches the students Laughter Milkshake!
