Nubia Henderson

Founder, Nubia Lives Yoga

“Live what you love, from the inside out.”

-Nubia Henderson

As a core principle, Nubia teaches children and families that self-love is the foundation for all positive change in our relationships, especially our communities. Activating this principle, she creates spaces for family yoga and mindfulness practice in underserved communities.

After the birth of her daughter Nubia was really challenged to live her yoga and returned to her roots of Kundalini yoga and meditation. Her journey of self-love and passion for children led her to create kids jamm, signature child-centered classes combining music and movement with prescriptive techniques and strategies for behavior management for ADD+ADHD, effective parent-child communication and identifying emotional triggers. Her goal is for families to understand the principles of yoga and use the tools in their daily lives.

Nubia has been honored to teach yoga to youth, educators and families throughout the South and West sides of Chicago through community partnerships with Youth Guidance,  The University of Chicago and other community based organizations. She is a Howard University graduate and holds a 200-hour yoga and Y.O.G.A for Youth certification.
