Wendy Fuchs, PhD has been teaching yoga and mindfulness to children for over 15 years. She discovered the benefits of yoga and mindfulness at a young age when she learned how to deal with difficult situations, powerful emotions, and circumstances outside of her control. She found an inner calm that existed even when outside environments were not so calm. Wendy considers it her life’s purpose to share these strategies with children who have minor day-to-day challenges or who may experience intense anxiety, fear, or sadness, and with children with learning/behavior challenges. She is a mother of three, a registered yoga teacher, a former classroom teacher, and a researcher and consultant for integrating mindfulness in schools.
