“It is all FUN and GAMES: using play to encourage mindfulness, movement, and connection”

Listen here…

Show Notes


Think back to the good ol’ days of recess and PE when you were a child. Do you remember playing classic games like Hopscotch, Duck Duck Goose, or Freeze Tag with your best buddies?

There is a reason classic games are still played today – they are FUN! So why reinvent the wheel? Kelly and Kristi talk about taking an oldie-but-goodie game and yoga-fying it for a whole new (yet familiar) experience in this episode of Mindful Conversations with KAY.

Listen in as we explore:

  • Engaging in play as a mindfulness practice
  • Reconnecting with your inner-child and your family through play
  • Changing the rules of a game to be more inclusive
  • Yogafying traditional, classic games (like Simon Says, Jenga, and Candy Land)
