My name is Rebecca and I trained several years ago with Kidding Around Yoga. I am a full time primary school teacher in Oxford and I teach your Kidding Around Yoga every week. It is without doubt the best part of the whole week for children and for me. Every single child loves it. They then sing all the words to your songs in the playground and start impromptu yoga sessions themselves on the field rather than playing other games. They use all the strategies you give in their daily lives and they are all fine calm, peaceful, kind, loving children. We have children with high level of need, some children with ADHD and autism and all children, without exception love everything about Kidding Around Yoga. I want to say thank you so much. This has transformed the classroom. Every parent at the recent online Parents Evening said that it was their child’s favourite subject and attendance is excellent in the hope we’re doing yoga again that day.  It has led to a calm, purposeful atmosphere with calm, peaceful, happy children. Just wanted you to know the impact you have had for us and I’m sure all over the world.

It was such an experience. Not only did it open my eyes to yoga for children and how it can have such an impact on their well-being, but it also deepened my own practice. It is often said we can learn a lot from children, and yoga is just another example of how that is so true. Kids get ...

It was such an experience. Not only did it open my eyes to yoga for children and how it can have such an impact on their well-being, but it also deepened my own practice. It is often said we can learn a lot from children, and yoga is just another example of how that is so true. Kids get stressed out too, or feed off our stress, and this amazing program can really help kids in need.

Just wanted to share that the Tuesday after training I went all through the school and yoga, mindfulness and little brain breaks were EVERYWHERE! It is amazing the change in all my staff. We always had mindfulness built in, but the teachers and staff are taking it to a whole new level! Yay! Thank you!!

I did a lot of research before I chose KAY for my Kids Yoga teacher training. I used to work in social welfare with kids who had experienced trauma, kids diagnosed with ADHD, ODD and other behavioral issues as well as psychological diagnoses. KAY works for these kids. KAY works for all kids actually. It allows freedom of expression and creates a predictable environment. KAY creates space for the loud, the quiet and everything in between. Using KAYs golden ticket and music I have seen kids who love to wriggle settle their bodies, I have seen kids who don’t speak practice mantras until they can say them clearly out loud, I have seen kids who are quiet and reserved let themselves shine and show their silly side. KAY is for KIDS!

I can’t believe how many different possibilities there are with this program. I’m going to be able to implement all the different aspects all throughout my classroom all day. My students and my children took the sample class today and I can see how much they enjoyed it. This program works.

My name is Sarah and I’ve been teaching kids yoga for a little over a year. I decided to get KAY Certified to open up opportunities to teach elsewhere. The KAY training has transformed my classes. I was confident in my teachings before, but this provided so many tools and fill in the puzzle pieces that I didn’t even realize were missing and created a great flow for the children and myself included. I love the KAY program and am absolutely recommending it to any of my yogi friends wanting to take that leap to childrens yoga. Thank you Kidding Around Yoga!
