*This month, we're highlighting some of our favorite people - our Tots Yoga Teachers. At Sisterhood Yoga we have had the awesome privilege of not only bringing developmentally-minded yoga to our precious toddlers, but doing so during our Mommy & Me Postnatal classes, so that mamas of many can find a place and space for the whole family to come together and practice. We would like to share these amazing people with you - and we hope you decide to share your amazing littles with us!
Ms. Fran is one of our Assistant Tots Yoga Teachers and has been working with us for the past couple of months. Ms. Fran brings to class a very calming energy with lots of new ideas. We love that she is our token German mama - and the littles love her books and fun themed-ideas.
"My name is Franziska Beeman but I go by Fran. I am 34 years old and live on Fort Carson with my husband Bud. I am from Germany and moved to the U.S. in 2007. In Germany I was a Kindergarten Teacher for children ages 3 months to 6 years. I finished my studies in early childhood development and social assistance and taught at various German Kindergartens from 2005 to 2007. I have gone back to work in Germany a couple times when Bud was deployed.
Some of the additional training I have includes child first aid and CPR, Montessori training from ages birth to three years, instructional Montessori art class for children, a weekend course for instructing Himalayan singing bowl (musical development for children), and annual hygiene and food handling courses.
I am very passionate about childhood development and am always looking for new and fun ways to expand my skillset. I also consider myself an animal lover. I have volunteered at animal rescue facilities because caring for animals is something I truly love to do. I have a dog named Sadie and a cat named Lilly that were both rescues. Some of my other hobbies include yoga, reading, and hiking with Bud. We are expecting our first child in May and can’t wait for her to arrive."
