After happily volunteering to teach yoga at her daughter’s New York City pre-school, Jensen Wheeler Wolfe realized she had some basic logistical problems. How would she teach yoga to 20 children in a space that only holds 10 adult yoga mats? And the idea of developing The Little Yoga Mat was born. Jensen found that the children in her classes loved having a mat their size. The teachers discovered that the mats helped the kids know where to do their yoga poses. No more running around. Everyone got focused. And moms thought they were adorable!
Jensen completed yoga teacher trainings at White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, Virayoga in New York City and is a registered teacher with the National Yoga Alliance. She invites budding yoginis to begin their yoga journeys with The Little Yoga Mat.
