Lani Rosen-Gallagher
Yoga Instructor & Trainer

Recognizing that children need balance and focus in their lives, Lani first incorporated yoga into her daily schedule while teaching first grade in Coney Island, Brooklyn (New York) way back in 1997. In 2004, Lani founded/created Full of Joy Yoga in San Francisco.  She moved to CT in 2008 and has been teaching yoga to children in preschools, public schools, yoga studios, libraries, festivals and after-school programs all over the New Haven area. Training others to teach yoga to children is one of Lani’s passions, as she realizes she can reach many more children by sharing her skills and talents with other adults.

Since 2006, she has organized and led her Full of Joy Yoga Kids Yoga Teacher Trainings for parents, teachers, and yogis all over the country. Her main goal is to get yoga & mindfulness into every school! Currently she is teaching her “Mindful Yoga Breaks” curriculum to teachers and students in the New Haven & Hamden Public schools and hopes to one day have it used in all of them. She is also the creator of the Mindful Yoga Breaks Anchor Breath poster and card deck to go with her Mindful Yoga Breaks curriculum.
