MIRADOR Kids Yoga & Mindfulness Teachers
Laura Love Rittinger
Laura completed our 95 Hour Yoga Alliance Accredited Mirador kids yoga & mindfulness teacher training in Spring of 2015. In her own words, "this was truly one of the best decisions I’ve made – to enter and complete the well-rounded program Cezarina has organized, to become a part of her community of yogis, teachers, and students, as well as, subsequently, become more self-aware so that I can incorporate her teachings into my daily lessons in the classroom. I am not a full-time yoga teacher. I am a full-time English & Social Studies teacher, spending much of my time in a traditional classroom setting with middle school aged children. A few weeks ago, I began my 8th year of teaching and it has always struck me how important (even necessary) it is at times for students to be self-aware, mindful of their actions and intentions, as well as have time to relax, recuperate, and rejuvenate themselves. Unfortunately, these are learned skills, habits, and patterns that are not always been modeled appropriately at home. Thanks to Cezarina and the resources, tools, and activities she gave us during our kids yoga teacher training, I’ve been able to implement some of them into my daily routines, while still teaching the needed curriculum and standards. ...As a classroom teacher, I’ve also been stretching myself with letting students move, or simply not be so stuck to their desks. We’ll do a lot of role-playing, modeling, posing, etc. which are all ideas I’ve gathered from Cezarina at her Mirador Yoga School. The students are more engaged, retain information better, and generally are more comfortable – it adds to our classroom climate, of it being a safe, pleasant environment so that they are better able to learn and be successful. Moreover, Cezarina’s teachings and the whole Mirador Kids Yoga teacher training certification in general was so inspiring for me, I’ve voluntarily created a Yoga Club that occurs once a week after school that students eagerly participate in. Not only do they enjoy our weekly sessions, but they’ll tell me how on their own time they’ll practice yoga and will even creatively try to incorporate yoga principles into regular class lessons, if the activity is open for that connection. I have so much gratitude for Cezarina, who’s been a catalyst for this transformation that’s gradually taking place with me and my students!"

I feel so much love and connection, no sense of separation. There is so much GRACE I feel right now…only tears and no words. All I can say right now is THANK YOU…I am very grateful for all of you in my training group. I feel so much grace and so much more to come in for us now. I am so blessed, Cezarina, that you facilitated all of this, it is amazing.
Amy loves teaching kids yoga clubs at several schools in Cincinnati, OH. In her testimonial, she mentioned that "going through Mirador Kids Yoga, Mindfulness & Creativity Coaching Teacher Training has been so much more than a training...it has been a continuation of the priestess process for me, diving deeper into Self-Realization, Self-Love, Empowerment and the world of Magic! This process has been opening me even more to love and divinity. I "know" deep in myself I am here to share the gift of yoga and more with the children. I also "know" I am meant to do this as a co-creation with my 6 year old daughter.... I am grateful for the support I am being given on this journey! I am grateful for Cezarina. Her love shines so strong and I know her support is unconditional. She allowed the space for me to shine even brighter!...The new earth begins with each of us and sharing that feeling with children is amazing! May I hold light and love as I continue on this journey!" (Amy Ramberg, , Cincinnati, OH)
“I completed the 200 hour yoga teacher training and never did anything with my certificate. I felt that fun was missing while trying to teach the adults, they were too serious for me. Then all of the sudden my husband showed me the FB post about Cezarina’s Mirador Kids Yoga Teacher & Creativity Coaching Training and he said I should check it out. I looked at this, I called the number and I met Cezarina in September 2015 to ask more questions; and from that first moment I made that connection with her it was absolutely wonderful. She opened her door to me and I have been immersed in magic ever since. I am so happy! Now I can easily teach yoga to adults and have fun with it. This training takes you back to your true essence, it doesn’t make you afraid to be vulnerable and to try something new. You open up to your True Self, you become a risk taker…like a child. Cezarina believes the greatest yoga teacher trainer lives inside of you…we simply come together to discover that piece of the puzzle. The process of this Mirador training is the coming together of brilliant minds to expand creatively, to share their inner power, to envision things that have not yet been created.
