In South Florida Ms. Elana offers school based programming which can be incorporated as a special or enrichment during the school day, and it can also be offered as a gym period.

Summer is for quality time with friends, family vacations, cool treats, and most importantly …CAMP! Kidding Around Yoga with Ms. Elana knows why every year millions of kids attend Summer Camp across the US – the benefits are AMAZING!  Spending days physically active, gaining confidence in activities, increasing resiliency, and unplugging from technology are some of the highlights children experience at camp on a daily basis.  Now how about adding some Yoga & Mindfulness to complete their exciting summer!

Here are 5 Reasons YOUR CAMP should offer Kidding Around Yoga with Ms. Elana:  

  1. IT’S FUN!

– Children will learn exciting poses inspired by animals, plants, transportation and more. Partner poses for older kids are a blast and teaches cooperation in a team environment.


– Campers will learn tips for quieting the mind through yoga games and meditation that increase their ability to sit still, concentrate, and listen internally – which are all excellent skills for school! (You’re Welcome Teachers!)


– Even after learning a simple pose, like balancing on one leg in Tree Pose, kids will come home and say, “Mom/Dad, look what I can do.” These bragging rights are really powerful for children and helps them build up much needed confidence in our competitive world.


– A regular practice of yoga can help children sleep better, improve coordination, boost their immune systems, and encourages self-care.


– After a full yoga class with music, poses, games, activities, and breathing, they are ready for Kidding Around Yoga’s Secret Garden meditation to relax and be still…and they LOVE IT!
