A center for meditation, yoga, and spiritual upliftment, Ananda Dallas...
In 2004 I started my yoga practice after the birth of my second child. I found it to be the perfect "exercise" for my body and mind to balance the busyness of raising a family. I began sharing my practice with children and teens in 2011 at Yogikids/FitFamily studio and area schools. Through stories, games and music we learn that yoga is a calming, centering, and strengthening practice that we can use our whole life.
