Colin Lieu goes by the moniker 'The Multitasking Yogi' and his mission is to help young people realize their potential. With the support of community, his work makes the tools for self-regulation more accessible to children, especially in under-served communities in New York City. His work allows his students to feel connected and confident in themselves in order to navigate their unique path. Our discussion explores the role of mindfulness in helping children to self-regulate their behaviour and articulate their feelings, the lessons Colin has learned from working with these children, his book and other ways he's empowering children to use mindfulness in their day-to-day as well as why he calls himself a multitasking yogi.
