About this Episode:

A conversation with Lynea Gillen about an innovative approach to working with children and teens that integrates physical yoga, mindfulness practice, and social-emotional learning (SEL) activities.  Lynea highlights program themes, shares personal examples from her work, and offers insights into successful application of the approach.  

About Lynea:

Lynea was introduced to yoga as a teenager and found it the ideal tool for coping with emotional challenges she was then facing.  She holds an MS in Counseling and is both a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) with Yoga Alliance and an Oregon Licensed Professional Counselor.  A decades-long proponent of somatic, body-based therapies, Lynea creatively melds dance, yoga, counseling, music, trauma releasing exercises (TRE) and “active play” into her work through her counseling practice.  She has been a featured speaker at national education, counseling and mindfulness conferences and is the award-winning author of Yoga Calm for Children, Good People Everywhere, Little Banty Chicken and the Big Dream, and creator of the highly regarded Mindful Moments Cards and DVD Kids Teach Yoga: Flying Eagle.
