Kids Yoga


This class is taught by:

Amanda Kocurek

Amanda finished her yoga instructor training earlier this year and is also certified to teach SUP yoga. Off the mat, she is a Montessori teacher, working with children (18-36 months ) for the last 9 years. "Bringing yoga into my classroom was my research project and I was amazed at how the children took to it, they wanted to do it, they asked to do it. I truly believe the breath of life and how to use it should be taught very early in life. I teach breathing techniques in my class everyday."
Amanda has been practicing yoga for the last ten years. Going through the training was such an amazing and badass experience for her. "Not only did I deepen my practice but my spirituality deepened too. I gained a lot of confidence in myself and was able to let go of the baggage and create space for new positive things in my life."

Yoga has taught her self love and to be OK with her authentic self even if someone doesn't like it. "I've learned that I'm in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday. I'm stoked to be at Awakened Yoga Studio. See you on the mat."

Phen Izrael

Phen Izrael is an energetic weirdo that loves to do handstands and almost all things flexible! His yoga practice began in 2009 as an alternative to surgery, after having two compression fractures in his lower back. Fast forward to 2016 and he is teaching the youth of Sugar Land, here at Awakened Yoga! His kids yoga classes are filled with fun, high energy, and self awareness. Phen focuses his kids yoga classes on becoming aware of yourself, your own body, your own thoughts, and your own breath. When he is not teaching yoga, Phen is either playing drums with his band Kattkill or spending most of his time with his spectaculistic wonderful wife, Kat. (she teaches yoga here too...check her out...her classes are awesome) Phen also coaches boys recreational gymnastics and practices hypnotherapy.
 
If you are lucky, you might take a class when Phen is playing live music during the Flow!
