About the Author

At age 8, Lani practiced her first mindful breath which sparked her life-long journey of mind-body exploration. She danced through childhood, practiced and taught yoga as a young adult and began meditating regularly during the early days of parenthood. When she skipped her practice, her family noticed that she seemed more reactive, stressed, and overwhelmed. Years of daily practice has expanded Lani's patience and joy while creating a deeper connection to herself, others, and nature. Whether reading, writing, hiking, dancing, biking, playing music, practicing yoga, meditating, or teaching, she feels best when living mindfully and being fully present. She is grateful to share 26 of her favorite A-Z Mindfulness practices with you.
Since 2004, Lani has taught yoga and mindfulness to thousands of students, athletes and educators at schools, libraries, sports fields and studios.
