Ohana means family in Hawaiian — not just immediate family, but extended family, friends, neighbors and so on. Not so far from St. Louis, in Wisconsin, is a lady whom I have never met in person, yet, I most certainly consider Ohana … a fellow yogi and an equally passionate advocate for children’s and family yoga. I truly admire and respect what she has built and the fabulous resources she provides for teachers and practitioners alike. I love even more her true yogi spirit supporting the launch of my book and teaching tools and sharing them selflessly with her extensive Ohana.
I am, of course, talking about Mira Binzen, co-founder of Global Family Yoga and I am extremely excited to share her valuable resource, a monthly subscription for those who teach, have or work with kiddos, aptly named Ohana. It is a wonderful resource to have at your fingertips. Planning is essential for a good, well-balanced and inclusive class plan — it can also get overwhelming when you are juggling life as well as teaching a lot — you simply run out of time. Enter, Ohana, each month members have access to new tools, lesson plans and ideas and more.

Check it out. As I tell all of my students, broadening your outreach and striving to continue to learn from as many people as possible, as well as scoping out each and every resource available to you, is what will help you to grow as a teacher (okay, I do say student as we are always learning).
