Marianne's mission is to bring mindfulness and yoga practices to school settings and communities in her area, for the benefit of the student and the school/community they live in. Her work with preschoolers with disabilities as a Physical Therapist Assistant for 17 years inspired her to pursue certifications as a Children’s Yoga Teacher, as over the years, children coming into preschool programs demonstrated more and more challenges that were related to mental health, stress and anxiety. As an integral part of multi-disciplinary preschool special education teams, focus was on the whole child. Her experience includes creating sensory-friendly environments, both physical (as in classroom set-up) and internal, (as in our attitudes and intentions regarding the children served).
