About Me

Julie is a married mother of three active boys, aged 13, 16 and 19. She has been teaching yoga to adults and children for the past five years, and for the past two, has been bringing Kidding Around Yoga to kids aged 2-12 at her local YMCA in Pittsford, NY, as well as helping to incorporate KAY into preschool, elementary and after school programs around Rochester. During school hours, Julie works as a one-to-one aide to a special needs student at her local Middle School. She is also a certified Pilates and Barre instructor, and a sometime freelance health and medical writer. As a new KAY trainer, Julie is OMazingly excited to help bring KAY to more and more teachers around Western New York and to YMCAs beyond.

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!

Girl Scouts

Hello local Scouts and neighborhood leaders!

I would love the opportunity to introduce the Science of Yoga to your troop/den and help them earn a Yoga Fun Patch.

While teaching the Science of Yoga, KAY provides a curriculum that is specifically designed to help children be active, learn to relax, improve focus, and have FUN in a non-competitive environment. I will offer a class customized for your troop level, which can include a special scout story, meditation techniques, games, activities, and much more!

I teach all troop/den levels and can even do a private sessions as well.

I look forward to hearing from your organization to schedule a class soon.
