Bio


Lydia Gauthier

 

Lydia Gauthier took her first yoga class in 2012 and absolutely fell in love. At a time of instability in her life, Lydia found grounding and peace through yoga. When she began teaching in a preschool she shared her practice with the kids in her class. Using breathing techniques and simple poses proved to be just as exciting for her as it was for the children in her class. Soon Lydia began to take her students on yoga "adventures" choosing different places in the world to visit through stories and yoga. Lydia found meaning and passion in teaching children's yoga. Soon she was teaching regular classes at a preschool to children 2-5 years old. After teaching for 3 years, Lydia decided to branch out into the community and open Namaplay. Lydia's goal has been to instill a sense of community and a sense of independence in the children she works with. Lydia has also received her Children's Yoga Certification under Jaime Amor at Cosmic Kids Yoga.
