About Me

Hi! I am Bernadette Whitman, an active mama of two and joyful partner in life with my husband. I have a passion for working with children and helping people find how to live a healthy, joyful and peaceful life. I have used mindful movements and relaxation techniques in many aspects of my classroom teaching life and personal life. In my yoga classes for kids, we explore yoga through traditional poses, creative movement and relaxation while encouraging imagination and fun. With over 20 years in education, I teach sessions that provide a safe place for children to experience yoga in a developmentally appropriate way. My passion is to help people find their inner joy, or their light, and let it SHINE!

Yoga unites the mind, body and soul in a way that promotes health and well being. Children of all ages and abilities benefit from the practice of yoga by learning body awareness and calming strategies. As a Registered Yoga teacher for adults and children (RYT200, RCYT 95), I have trained with Kidding Around Yoga. I have been trained in strategies as a Trauma Informed Yoga Teacher and certified in yoga for children with autism and special needs. My teaching career began as a health educator with high school students, which then led to my work as a certified classroom educator with elementary aged students for over 20 years. I treasured my time as a Volunteer Crisis Counselor with Crisis Test Line to support teens and adults.

Yoga has been a powerful guide in my own life for many years. I am thrilled to be able to share yoga with children and their families that may bring them further joy and peace in creative, fun and safe environments.

The Magic of Kidding Around Yoga

When children experience KAY classes, they are not only building physical strength and flexibility, they are learning skills that will provide mental and emotional benefits throughout their lives! The magic of Kidding Around Yoga is our unique class programming. KAY teachers are experts in meeting each child’s needs, providing creative activities, games, songs, and crafts based on traditional yoga and meditation practices.

Our children live in a busy world and KAY classes are an oasis providing a safe place to be creative, move freely, and experience calm. We look forward to being part of your child’s day!
