Abby Wills, MA, ERYT, brings her passion for democratic education and deep respect for the tradition of yoga to her work guiding youth and teachers in contemplative arts. Abby’s approach is informed by studies in social justice and developmental education at Pacific Oaks College, as well as two decades of training in yoga. Having taught thousands of hours of yoga lessons in schools over the past fifteen years, Abby felt deeply compelled to create a program that could reach teens who don’t have the privilege of yoga classes in their schools. To this end, Abby co-founded Shanti Generation, a yoga + media company, to create more access to yoga for teens and teachers by offering yoga via DVD format.
Shanti Generation’s first two titles, Yoga Skills for Youth Peacemakers and Partner Yoga for Teens, feature real teen yogi’s in a teen friendly environment practicing at a teen approved pace. Upcoming from Shanti Generation, The Contemplative Classroom Series is set to complete production in Spring 2013.
As a teacher trainer, Abby empowers teachers to find their own voice while integrating evidence-based contemplative practices into their work with youth.
