SARAH DENNEHY, M.ED, RYT
Registered Yoga Teacher
Working with kids with anxiety, ADHD, and autism, I wanted to find a way to help them become more self-aware and less stressed.
In the process of helping them, I started to become more self-aware and less stressed.
So I created The Mindful Space so we can all become more self-aware and less stressed!
Mindfulness helped me shift my perspective which gave me the confidence to follow my passion.
So now my passion has evolved into my mission. I’ve combined my professional and spiritual practices to work with children of all ability levels, parents, or anyone looking to create a more mindful life. Let’s work together to create a mindful space in your life!
