I’ve completed the Trauma Informed Kidding Around Yoga course. I have learned a lot about the ways our physical bodies store trauma. It’s been eye opening and I am hopeful to put this knowledge to good use. Always grateful to continue learning and studying the tremendous benefits of yoga.

Sometimes I forget that there are so many misconceptions about yoga, for any age group. I was recently reminded by a friend that her kids were reluctant to take a KAY class with me because yoga is “serious” and “still.” What a perfect opportunity it is for me to bust that myth! Kidding Around Yoga is unlike any yoga program I have seen for children. As an experienced yoga teacher, I am incredibly impressed with the way KAY is tailored to each age group. Please reach out to me with any questions. I’m currently preparing for an upcoming Spring Fling event and will be looking around for places to hold classes and camps. I’ll keep ya posted!

Did you know that coloring helps reduce stress and anxiety in a similar way as meditation? It can also help us feel happier and think more clearly. Here is a free printable coloring page if you’d like to share with your kids.

Yogis naturally have a way of bringing peace and love to this world. Know why? When we become better in tuned with ourselves, we are able to face the world with a clearer lens. Gifting children with this ability, a lifelong asset, is simply amazing.
Be on the lookout for Kidding Around Yoga classes with me soon! It’s time to find peace, love and justice together. 💗💗💗

Here is a wonderful meditation to teach your children. Have them find a quiet place where they can sit comfortably.
Begin by having them bring attention to their breath. Tell them to notice how it feels as it comes into and goes out of their body. Then softly recite each of these phrases individually and have them recite them out loud at first then to themselves. Practicing this loving-kindness meditation for just a couple of minutes when they are feeling overwhelmed or anxious can be incredibly beneficial.

Work with your children on this exercise to strengthen their defense against anxiety. It will help them to feel grounded and in control. 💗

An excerpt taken from Harvard Health Publishing, written by Marlynn Wei, MD, JD

“Yoga and mindfulness have been shown to improve both physical and mental health in school-age children (ages 6 to 12). Yoga improves balance, strength, endurance, and aerobic capacity in children. Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children as well. A growing body of research has already shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behavior, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.”

I had the pleasure of teaching a bit of a hybrid class tonight at County Ballet in Bel Air. They are holding an intensive dance camp and asked if I’d come in to lead them in a yoga practice. My students ages ranged from 9-60ish. We did some KAY and some beginner yoga. I was so impressed how well everyone did. Such a great time!

Had a wonderful photo shoot with some amazing kiddos! Olivia told her mom the other day (straight outta bed in the morning) “I want to do Kidding Around Yoga today!” If that isn’t the best testimonial, I don’t know what is! Tomorrow starts a 5 class Session, and it’s not too late to sign up. I’ll post my website in the comments for all of the details. I’m happy to pro-rate if your child cannot attend all 5 classes. 😉 If your child does sign up for the entire session, they will receive a FREE Kidding Around Yoga T-Shirt!
