About Brigitte

Brigitte O'Ryan Polio Inspired Kids Yoga LeaderBrigitte was introduced to yoga at a young age by her parents who practiced yoga at home.  In her adult life, she continued to practice until she felt called to complete her yoga teacher training in 2006.  At that time, she also worked at a school and decided to bring together her love of yoga with her love of teaching children.   Since 2006 she has taught children from toddlers to teens in schools, churches, and community centers.  In 2012, Brigitte trained with the Radiant Child Yoga program and completed her Level 3 Children’s Yoga teacher training.  In 2013 she completed a mindfulness curriculum program with Mindful Schools.

Brigitte is passionate about sharing the teachings of yoga with others, especially to children.  She sees children as natural yogis who not only love to explore the many poses in the physical practice but  also are drawn to the practices of mindfulness and meditation.  In this fast-paced world she sees yoga as a way for children to slow down and connect with their inner voice to become more confident, peaceful, and content in their daily lives.
