Fun-filled kids yoga, meditation, and mindfulness for schools, events and more.

About Me

As a classroom teacher for students with learning and social challenges, I found that Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) aligned with my philosophy regarding the importance of learning through play. I became a qualified KAY Classroom Kids Yoga teacher in 2020. My students looked forward to daily yoga time. They were excited to share the songs, stories, and activities with others.

After retiring from teaching in 2022, I continued my yoga education by attending a Kidding Around Yoga teacher training. It is awesome to have the expertise of an international company as I begin a new adventure.

In my Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) classes, the children have opportunities to experience music, games, movement, and sensory activities. The classes are safe places for all children to stretch their bodies and learn to focus their minds while having fun! The KAY method is easily adapted for children of all ages and abilities.

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!

More Information


Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) provides a fun 10-step yoga learning experience for all Scouts ages 5-10. Children will learn about the practice of yoga, mindfulness, kindness, and self-care as they work through the steps. Scout leaders may decide which steps are the best fit for their troop. A “fun patch” can be earned when all steps are completed.

  • Tiger Cubs
  • Cub Scouts
  • Daisy Scouts
  • Brownies
  • Junior Girl Scouts

$10 per scout for the first session (60-75 minutes.) $2 extra per scout for the patch. If you want a guide for the 10 steps, follow-up sessions can be completed weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Price will vary based on the amount of time per session.  Mats will be provided for up to 10 scouts. Mats are non-toxic and cleaned with disinfectant after each use.

Troops can choose to complete the steps independently.


Invite Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) to your next birthday party, sports party, pool party, or “just for fun” gathering! I will provide a fun yoga experience that includes exercise, mindfulness, stories, games, and music! A mindful craft can be included if requested. My KAY program is available for children through the age of 10 at this time.

I have 10 mats that the children can use for the activities. These mats are non-toxic and they are cleaned with hypoallergenic disinfectant after each use.

Party prices start at $10 per child with a $30 minimum. Crafts and game materials MAY add to the cost.



Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) can come to your preschool or day care center to help teach mindfulness, self-awareness, and exercise!
