Ann-Noelle McCowan, M.S., RYT

Ann-Noelle McCowan has spent the past fourteen years working with students, primarily as a middle school counselor. She is currently in her 10th year as a guidance counselor at a local high-achieving middle school, and prior to that, she worked for the San Francisco School District in both middle and elementary school settings.

In San Francisco, she began her study of yoga while earning her Master’s degrees in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling, as well as in School Counseling.

While employed at her current school counselor’s job, Ann-Noelle worked part-time for three years at Academy MetroWest in Natick, MA. There, she ran activity-based therapeutic groups for children in which the focus was on developing social skills, self-esteem and self-regulation.

In her school counseling role, she incorporates cognitive-behavioral strategies, relaxation and mindfulness into individual and group sessions, and is actively involved in working with her students' families and outside providers.

She enjoys combining her counseling experience and knowledge of brain-based learning with the positive effects that yoga, meditation and mindfulness can have on student anxiety, depression and attention-related issues.

Ann-Noelle completed her yoga teacher certification in the Shri Yoga program, and has also completed yoga training specific to children in the Kidasana program.
