Lynea Gillen is a pioneer in the field of health and wellness education for youth. Her heart-centered, creative and effective tools were developed directly from her 35 years of supporting youth as a school teacher, counselor and clinician. Lynea's Yoga Calm program was developed in a behavior classroom in a rural Oregon elementary school over 16 years ago. The program is now being used with tens of thousands of children around the world in diverse settings, such as classrooms, clinics and psychiatric hospitals like the Mayo Clinic. Lynea is also an adjunct professor at Portland State University and Lewis & Clark College, where she has created 12 courses in counseling and special education and has taught thousands of teachers, counselors and therapists. Her books and media have also won eight national awards.
