Jeehye lee

EDUCATION AND BACKGROUND

Marshmallow Minds is collaborating with Ms. Jeehye Lee to bring the mindfulness yoga program to our summer camp! Jeehye has received yoga training from Ms. Melinda Heerabout, an experienced yoga instructor for kids & adults who successfully ran the mindfulness yoga for kids program at Marshmallow Minds in our 2018 summer camp. 

I’m Jeehye lee and I’ve been practicing yoga for over a year. It has been a transformational experience in my life physically and mentally. My doctor first recommended that I practice yoga for a wholesome wellness of body and mind. I got connected with Melinda Hereabout, kids & adult instructor, with whom I have been training and preparing to lead the kid’s yoga program at Marshmallow Minds. Working with kids never feels like work as I enjoy interacting with their positive energy. 

I’m excited as much as I’m committed to deliver the kids yoga session during the summer camp, indulge the classes with fun activities while teaching the kids about the benefits of yoga and mindfulness.

A little bit about me. I went to San Jose State to study Interior Design and eventually switched to Illustration which is something I’m very passionate about. My other passions include being outdoors and spending time with pets. I would love to have a chance to work with animals some day!
