About Lisa

Inspiration. Movement. Transformation.
Lisa Newton is a RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance after receiving her training from Pineapple Yoga Studio. Lisa Newton is trained in Kidding Around Yoga after receiving training from KAY at CircuSoul Yoga Studio. Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) is a style of Yoga that was created by Haris Lender, ERYT 500, RCYT, YACEP. KAY encompasses the 5 branches of Yoga in a clear engaging method. A typical KAY class gets the children singing, dancing, skipping,marching, jogging, shaking, laughing, hopping, limboing, and storytelling ALL while practicing authentic Yoga to original KAY music. It is SO much fun your kids will LOVE it! More information about Kidding Around Yoga can be found at

For Lisa, yoga is about the inner change and awareness. Practice is a time to put everything else on hold and connect to your inner being. The heightened awareness she experiences is what continues to draw her to the mat. Her passion is to share the positive effects yoga has had upon her life in hopes of continuing this positive effect among all adults and children.

In my Kids Yoga classes, I use Kidding Around style of yoga for kids that specializes in sharing yoga, mindfulness, and meditation with children 5- 12; specialized fun music, mindfulness, as well as other as well as other tools and activities to help children focus their minds and stretch their bodies, all while having loads of fun. Yoga and meditation has been considered for a long time as a wonderful means of stress management. We use a system based on the classical study of yoga and transforms it into an experience for children to both introduce them to yoga as well as inspire them to develop a practice and give them tools to take into adulthood.

May the whole world be filled with peace and joy, love and light, and lots of peaceful children

The Magic of Kidding Around Yoga

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!

Class Schedule

My passion is in teaching Yoga, meditation, and mindfulness to children. I will be offering a series of Children’s Yoga classes at Pineapple Yoga Studio in downtown Sarasota. Each class will build on one another and will help improve strength, flexibility, and coordination. These fun, inspirational classes encourage a child’s natural thirst for knowledge. In this imaginative series, I combine simple Yoga poses with engaging songs, stories that exercise social, sensory and motor skills all while increasing flexibility. Children will learn how to focus and center themselves with various breathing and visualization techniques. They will also learn self-respect and respect for others with the practice of fun and challenging poses, partner and group poses, lots of Yoga games, breathing and basic anatomy.

$18 for a drop in single session or sign up for all four classes for $60 (no refunds on the 4 classes even if not all 4 classes are attended by the child)

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!
