Open House with The Little Yoga House

I have been teaching the Nourishing Kids Class for Austin’s only all kids yoga studio, The Little Yoga House, for almost a year now! Yesterday was our first open house and it was a beautiful success. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the parents and educating them about what we do in our class!

After a quick family yoga session we all gathered around to socialize and snack on some tasty treats.

I decided to make an easy and delicious quinoa dish that was gluten free and full of raw veggies.
