Deborah Chandler-Vanherp

Deb’s love of yoga is based on the amazing gifts that a regular yoga practice offers. Her belief is that yoga uniquely prepares us for anything life throws at us. Making the connection between your mind, body, and soul is essential for maintaining personal balance. Starting a yoga routine early in life can have life changing benefits.

Deb has an extensive background working with children and her credentials are many. Deb holds a Master of Science Degree in Special Education, working as a Cognition Specialist for children with Autism and Developmental Disabilities, and a Masters degree in Elementary Education. In addition to her clinical background, she also is a certified ChildLight Yoga instructor and completed her 200 hour Kundalini Yoga teacher training this February at Trinity Yoga.

Deborah Chandler-Vanherp instructs the following:
  • Children's Yoga Class Series - Yoga through Games, Stories & Mindful Meditation
  • Today’s children lead demanding and hectic lives. These demands can be very stressful leading to runaway negative thoughts, low self-esteem, lack of compassion and empathy, negative body image, and lack of respect for themselves and others. Yoga can offer some relief!
    During these weekly classes Deb will introduce yoga poses, breathing exercises and mindful meditation. This class series will provide children with the tools they need to manage their thoughts and emotions.  The techniques practiced in class will help to build more resilient, focused and well balanced individuals.

    This class series is open to all children ages 4 through 12 and all levels of ability are welcome, including children with special needs.
    This is a 6 week series beginning June 27th and meets Tuesdays 2:30-3:15 for children ages 4-7 & 4:00-5:00 for ages 8-12.  Cost is $60 for all 6 classes.  There will not be a class July 4th.
    A parent/guardian/other family member must also attend class with their child/children either as an observer or participant. This allows an adult member of the family to reinforce the skills learned in class in the home environment.  
    There is limited space due to the nature of this class, so you must pre-register if you are interested in attending!  Spots will fill quickly.
