Yogi Bhajan recognized her as a teacher of children and for many years had her answer inquiries he received about children's yoga.
Shakta began teaching children yoga in 1976 when she lived in a spiritual community in Baltimore, MD. She loved making up yoga stories, and the children seemed to love it too.
In time she became a Montessori teacher. From there, she began teaching yoga in schools and daycare centers and realized she could not personally meet the demand for children's yoga.
Thus was born the Radiant Child Yoga Program (RCYP), a comprehensive system for training children's yoga teachers.
