Deven has been teaching yoga to adults and children since 2005, and AcroYoga since 2007. These key pieces of mastery coupled with her background in theater, art, and circus collaborate to create an embodied teaching practice for those who want to share Kids Yoga and Family AcroYoga for others.
She has studied with masters of their craft including Janet Stone, Jenny Sauer-Klein, Jason & Chelsey Magness, Lux, among others. She is continuously learning, growing and evolving her dedication to self-practice and exploration. In 2005, she finished writing her Children’s Yoga Teacher Training manual and built the curricula recognized by the Yoga Alliance that trains Kids Yoga & Family AcroYoga Teachers with exemplary skillfulness and a focus on social justice and inclusivity.
Deven has worked with and welcomes parents, grandparents, current yoga teachers, educators, counselors, caregivers, therapists and anyone who wants to share the practice of yoga with children. To teach the children well in these modern, changing times is her focus and her hope is to support the next generation with tools that build self-awareness, confidence, comfort and strength.
