Carees Gonzalez has been a yoga practitioner for almost 6 years. The first classes she attended were traditional Hatha Yoga and therefore included meditation and pranayama (breath-work). She is grateful she was exposed to those aspects of Yoga early in her practice as they have become the most important parts she shares with her young students. In 2015 Carees completed Angie Fraley’s 200-Hour “Om2yoga” teacher training. She enrolled in this program with no intention of teaching, but to get a better understanding of the philosophy and the practice for herself. By the end of the training Carees had developed an interest in teaching yoga to kids. At that point she had been working with kids professionally for almost 7 years. In 2016 she enrolled in the Yoga for the Special Child (YSC) teacher training and has since graduated from the 95-hour Basic One and Basic Two programs. She plans to continue onward with more education within the YSC program. She has many students—some special needs, some “typical developing”—all near and dear to her heart. Teaching children has been an aspiration of hers since she was a young girl and she is grateful to be stepping into the role as a teacher within such a well-founded program.
