Pamela Nixon is a full time yoga instructor and owner of Teachasana.com, an online resource for yoga teachers around the world. She enjoys teaching yoga for all ages from toddlers to seniors. Pamela has been teaching movement based classes to children for the past 10 years, from cheerleading and preschool gymnastics to fitness and yoga. She enjoys turning children's yoga classes into a game-playing, song-singing yoga adventure. Her passion is teaching other yoga teachers how to do the same so that we can have more little yogis in the world! You can find more info at www.PamelaNixon.com.

You can see from Pamela’s bio above that she is passionate about children and yoga, so what would be better than bringing them together? Read here for an exclusive e-interview so you can get to know her a little bit and learn why she has decided to become a part of Onyx’s 200 hour teacher training beginning this October!
