Eileen has worked with children since she was fifteen, as a swim instructor and lifeguard at her local YMCA. Since then, she has worked at many different organizations and schools with children, in the water, out of it, and in many classrooms as well. Eileen became a certified kid's yoga instructor at the Monterey Yoga Shala with Melissa Mayes of the stretch.play.yoga organization. She is currently completing her multiple subject teaching credential and masters in education at San Jose State. Teaching yoga to children allows her to balance out academic curriculum with mindful movement. She incorporates yoga practice into her everyday teaching as it is an essential part of her lifelong learning.
Eileen Lindley instructs the following:
A flowing sequence of postures combining breath and movement. Build heat from the inside and out, core strength, stamina and flexibility in this class. This is an all-levels class, with modifications provided for all levels of practitioners.
This up-tempo class is designed to link yoga poses (asanas), transitions between poses and breath into an exhilarating yoga flow. You can expect to go from a deep subtle body warm up to a more intense flow as you work with alignment, strength and flexibility throughout the class. After this invigorating yet revitalizing yoga practice you might experience a serene state of meditative flow and connectedness.
