Your child will go on a learning adventure with Spanish instructor and citizen of the world, Teacher Brittany! Beginning with basics (or starting more advanced if your child is already avidly exploring the language), Brittany will introduce several concepts and useful phrases through games and songs. Integrating both sides of the brain, children will color and paint while incorporating their new vocabulary for los colores. Penguinos Adoran Colores is a beloved children's book about penguins and colors that will bridge the Experience, and animal vocabulary will also be introduced as children learn animal-inspired yoga poses and their corresponding names in Spanish. Language, color, animals, and movement: que lindo!
Brittany became a certified Yoga Instructor in 2016, having completed a 200-hour teacher training program in Fort Collins, Colorado. She's taught yoga to all ages — toddlers to senior citizens! — and has an extensive background in mindfulness training. She worked with the Denver-based, non-profit, Be Mindful, to teach emotional awareness, the science of the brain, and how to energize and calm down with breath-work in schools, after school programs, and to homeless adults.
Brittany also has a Bachelors in Spanish from the University of Oklahoma and has taught the Spanish language to students of all ages for 10 years. She has lived in Spain and Argentina and is fluent in Spanish reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension (including local dialects and styles). A warm and passionate educator, Brittany loves to bring language and culture into her educational experiences, just as much as she loves to layer movement (yoga especially!), song, and games into her lessons, to inspire the hearts and minds of students.
