About Me

Kelly is a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher and a 95hr Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher. She has an extensive background working with children. She started her career as a child life specialist in the hospital setting. She then attained her elementary teacher certification and has taught children ranging in age from preschool through fifth grade. She is also a mother of four children. Over the years the environment in which she worked with children changed, however, one thing remained constant, her belief that the most important things she could bring a child were self-confidence, strength, and the power to create their own inner peace. This has led her to become a children’s yoga instructor. Kelly believes the benefits of yoga can last a child a lifetime. She strives to educate and engage children and their families in these practices.

Kelly also works with parents to help create calm and connected homes through implementing mindful family practices. Parents can work with Kelly to approach parenting through the lens of mindfulness.

Outside of working with parents and teaching yoga classes, Kelly also works as a Trainer for KAY. She leads 2-day workshops teaching those who are interested in getting certified to teach kid’s yoga, and also is trained to lead Edu-KAY workshops. Edu-KAY is a 6-hour professional development workshop designed to give teachers, school counselors and administrators the tools to implement yoga, meditation and mindfulness into their classrooms

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.

Yoga in Schools

Children today live in a very fast-paced world. Between pressures from school, extra curricular activities, their peers, parents, and society, the hustle and bustle of everyday life can quickly wear down on a child’s inner peace and joy. All of these pressures and expectations can lead to a whole lot of stress, and while most kids are not familiar with the concept of stress, they can still experience what it feels like without giving it a label or name.

For educators, the challenge is to figure out how to instruct children in yoga, meditation and mindfulness in bits and pieces throughout the school day, without interfering with their current curriculum. Kidding Around Yoga offers a 6-hour professional development workshop called EduKAY designed specifically for this purpose. Teachers, counselors and administrators come away from this workshop with tons of resources that they can immediately implement into their classrooms/schools.
