In 2013 LB founded Soul Warrior Yoga for Youth, a for purpose, not-for-profit organization that provides youth of all ages with affordable yoga classes through school programs, classroom presentations and assemblies, and by partnering with community centres and organizations. SWYY also delivers biannual training for school teachers, counsellors, early childhood educators, yoga instructors, parents, as well as youth themselves on how to teach yoga to youth. We want to create global change through inspiring and empowering our local youth through yoga. Through increased awareness we believe our next generation will gain the confidence needed to make better choices that will support themselves as well as the local and global community.
Yoga is for everyone. Drawing from a variety of styles and trainings she aims to expand the yoga community by offering accessible, inspiring and passionate classes to all ages. With a blend of compassion and humour LB encourages students to maximize their opportunity, both on and off the mat by being mindful and making choices that are sustaining to both the individual and the earth. Join her on the mat for a journey towards strength, confidence, peace and ease.
