Uxue believes that emotions are a crucial part of our lives, since everything we do is based on how we feel. She thinks that since we are kids, we should give emotions more importance and work on managing them. After completing her master’s degree, she felt the need to explore more about working with emotions in the classroom. She practices yoga, which made her realize that yoga could be a great practice to work with emotions in the classroom. In 2020, she took a class with Seattle Kids Yoga and started teaching yoga to kids. The following year, she completed a 200-hour Child Family Yoga training with Radiant Child Yoga.

That’s why she incorporates various yoga poses, movements, games, mindfulness activities, breathing techniques, calming and relaxing techniques, music and songs, books, and imaginative play in her classes.
