When Jennifer Pastiloff gets her yoga students with disabilities into the Warrior 2 pose, she instructs them to say, “I am a beautiful warrior.” Jennifer Pastiloff, an LA-based yoga instructor, developed Gifts and Miracles Everyday (G.A.M.E.) Yoga when her nephew was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and she saw that he copied her poses. Her classes use meditation, core exercises, singing, and affirmation.

She is currently working towards having a “cohesive team that will be able to mobilize easily and work throughout Los Angeles.”
