Once upon a time, there was a little girl who loved storytelling. She would get lost in her imaginary worlds and enjoyed telling stories about objects, people, and events that she encountered in her surroundings. That little girl was me.
Hi, my name is Yasmin Afrazeh; a mostly grown adult who still believes that she is breathing magic into life, with her stories, art and creative projects. I am a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor, a Radiant Child trained Children’s Yoga teacher, and a Therapeutic Art Life Coach. I am the founder of “House of Lila.”
“House of Lila” was born with a vision of providing a safe, happy, expressive and nurturing environment for children. A space where children learn mindfulness and mindset skills through kundalini yoga and mindful movements, expressive arts, story time, and lots of love.
I have found that it is my calling to help the next generation in a very celebratory, exciting, and joyful process. I believe that children are naturally radiant, aware, and full of innocent wisdom. The deeper purpose of my work is to help them preserve their natural wisdom and radiance; or if the events in their lives have dulled the light, help them regain their inherent state of being.
Our approach in House of Lila values the human spirit and the development of the whole child – physical, social, and emotional. Children learn tools to balance their emotions, calm nerves, and develop a sense of self from a young age. Kids will learn to incorporate the principles of yoga into their lives forever. Through awareness, arts, love, and a tin of laughter, we help them maintain or recover their innate connection to who they truly are.
Children come into life as joyful beings–let’s keep them that way!
What's in a name?
"Lila" is a name of Sanskrit origin. It can be loosely translated to English as "play" (noun). Lila is a way of describing "Life", as the outcome of creative play by the divine absolute.
"House of Lila" is a safe and nurturing space for children (and mostly grown ups!) to Express, Create, and Connect with themselves.
