Be Your Own Superhero: Ages 8-10
about your teacher
Hollie first discovered Yoga in her last semester at the University of Texas. Growing up swimming competitively, health and wellness had always been front & center in her life. After retiring as a member of the Women’s Swim Team, she was able to slow down and explore other topics such as philosophy and how religion shapes culture. The Philosophy of Yoga opened her eyes to a holistic view of what life can be. Seeing swimming as a moving meditation, creating a depth of body awareness and breathwork, the transition to the practice of Yoga was a natural one. In 2006, she began working in the marketing department of Yoga Yoga in Austin, where she also completed her 200-hour training in 2009. After growing her family to include two sweet boys, her focus evolved to researching child development. Wishing she had tools of mindfulness as a child, and wanting more tools as a parent, Hollie completed her 97-hour Children’s Yoga Training. Since that time, she has taught children from 9-months-old to teenagers, developed workshops focused on families building connections, and currently teaches Children’s Yoga and Crawlers & Toddlers classes at Yoga Yoga. Her hope is to build self-awareness and confidence with the children in her classes – helping them feel seen, heard & empowered to express themselves – while also creating a safe, supportive community for all families whose paths she crosses.
