As an avid day dreamer, Jordan Ariel is very passionate about yoga and the good it can do for the world. She completed mini yogis foundation/kids and teen/tween teacher trainings followed by 200-hour YOGAthletica teacher training, all under the one and only Shana Meyerson. Being a lover of all forms of expression, Jordan has dabbled in almost every creative endeavor and now teaches art to the teens at Temple Menorah in Redondo Beach. She has also taught art to the preschoolers at the synagogue’s summer camp. As the oldest of five children, her affinity and love for working with children is no surprise.  She has both professional and personal experience teaching and interacting with children and adults with various special needs. This includes varying degrees of autism, depression and anxiety. She sees each person as valuable, not despite their challenges and eccentricities, but because of them. Her heart is full of love and gratitude every day for life itself and for the opportunity to be able to spread happiness, love, joy, and laughter through her work.

mastering the ancient art of being a kid!

"I was shocked yesterday that both of my boys (one who is ADHD and can't sit still for a second!) sat perfectly still during opening meditation and Savasana. It was quite amazing. I also really loved that [Shana] had the kids tell the class WHO made them special and WHAT makes them special."
