Dana Mahon – Child’s Pose Yoga

72807_188147161333292_338535437_nDana’s childhood anxieties and worries all melted away after she began practicing yoga 15 years ago. “Had I been taught these lessons at a young age I suspect I may have avoided certain struggles,” she explains. It was this  monumental shift in her life that inspired her to start working with children through yoga and mediation in the hopes of teaching them the tools that took her so many years to learn.  Dana will be using TPP’s funds to begin a children’s meditation an yoga center. The recipients of this centre would be kids, youth and their families who wish to spend some time in a quiet, restorative and tranquil sacred space, in nature in awe inspiring beautiful BC, on Quadra Island. “Life is trending toward busier and faster so if kids are taught to take even a few moments to calm their minds, breathe and return to their centre, they can transform the way they experience the world and how they respond, in turn creating more peace, more compassion and more love.”
