“Parenting is the most challenging work we can do, but also the most rewarding.”
“Anybody who works with kids, it’s not about power, it’s not about I’m going to show you or tell you. It’s really because you love and enjoy what children bring in, who they are and what they have to teach you.”
“It’s never just about physical fitness, it’s never just about leading meditation, it’s about bringing kids closer to values, you know, that are healthy, that are going to serve them in their growth through high school and into adulthood.”
“My first advice to any coach is to really meet the individual, as he or she or they are, it’s not about molding them into anything you think they should be, it’s just like, let teens authentically show up as themselves and reveal themselves to you without any judgment.”
“We have this overlay of everything’s got to be building towards something else and you have to be mastering something, everything doesn’t have to be competitive, things can be fun, just for the sake of fun.”
“It’s okay to fail, you’re learning, it’s not about perfectionism, it’s about bringing joyfulness to it.”
