Mindy Gordon Lasky is currently training to be a yoga instructor. She is certified to teach Kidding Around Yoga, a program designed specifically to teach this ancient practice in a fun and interesting way to children beginning at age 2. Mindy has truly found her passion as she combines her love for children and yoga. Mindy believes that yoga can help the very young child find calm within themselves through the practice of balance, focus and love.
