Tracey Lenac, MAEd, RCYP-2, RMT
Founder & Teacher of Soul Centered Kids
Hello, my name is Tracey Lenac and I've been teaching mindfulness and meditation to children in Los Angeles since 2008. While going to school to earn a Masters degree in Education/Curriculum & Instruction, I also attended a teacher training intensive with Shakta Khalsa to become certified as a Radiant Child Yoga Practioner (level 2). After researching stress and school aged children, I discovered that children were under tremendous amounts of stress and it was causing them to have major health problems. Furthermore, all of the data and information that I had compiled strongly suggested that the stress that children face each day was going to get worse as the years passed, not better.
After graduating with my Masters degree in 2007, I scanned the internet to try to find information about meditation as it relates to children. I looked for classes, websites, books - anything that I could get my hands on to help children learn how to relieve stress and anxiety. To my dismay, there weren't any children's meditation classes in the Los Angeles area that I could find. There was no curriculum that one could buy or download, so I designed and developed my own curriculum and started teach meditation to children in the park and have been teaching ever since!
I still design and develop my own curriculum. I do this in an effort to tailor my classes to the individual needs of each of my students. I have taught children as young as two years old, as old as 18 years old, children with ADD/ADHD, children on the autism spectrum and many others with different abilities. I actually started teaching meditation way before I knew that I wanted to teach meditation when my oldest son was a very small boy in the early 2000s. I used it as a way to help him fall asleep and have a restful sleep every night at bedtime. It's hard to believe, but I've been teaching meditation for almost 20 years!
In addition to teaching classes and workshops in Los Angeles, I have also launched an online school so that children and parents all over the world can learn mindfulness and meditation! My vision is to help as many children gain these essential skills as possible. I also offer classes and workshops in Reiki as I see that energy medicine will be something that everyone will want to have access to in the future. Teach them young so that they grow into adults who are awake and aware of the incredible healing abilities of mindfulness, meditation and Reiki!
I have been a Reiki Master Teacher for 16 years and am the owner of LAX REIKI where I see patients privately as well as provide Reiki Therapy for patients at a busy wellness clinic in Los Angeles.
