Cee Cee Weeks, Yoga Teacher RYT-200   Cee Cee has been working with kids and teens since the age of 11, and practicing yoga since graduating from Agnes Scott College in 2014. After practicing for a few years, the healing and calming aspects of yoga drew her to complete her 200 hour yoga teacher training with The Center for Integrative Yoga Studies. Since graduating, Cee Cee has been teaching trauma informed yoga and mindfulness through Centering Youth and bringing yoga to populations in need. Her passion for yoga lies in the power of yoga to help calm the nervous system, in teaching accessible classes for any student, and creating space for all bodies to move and meditate. When she's not practicing yoga (or talking about yoga or teaching yoga) you can find her taking ridiculous pictures of her cats, at the movies with her girlfriend, or hanging out with her favorite people.
