About Me

Stefanie Johnston, E-RYT200, RCYT, KAY Certified, has been practicing yoga for 18 years. She received her 200 hour yoga teacher certification in 2010 with St. Petersburg Yoga and completed her kids yoga teacher certification soon after with Kidding Around Yoga. She has since completed her 95-hour Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher designation, and is currently in the process of completing her 500-RYT. Stefanie loves working with children and understands the importance of education in mindfulness and stress management for kids.

In addition to teaching class in the Orlando area, and facilitating Kidding Around Yoga trainings, Stefanie is also the Communications Manager for Kidding Around Yoga, and she also manages the OKAY (Online Kidding Around Yoga) program. When Stefanie isn’t Kidding Around she enjoys quilting and spending time with her corgi Ruby Louise.

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!

Edu-KAY Workshops

My next Edu-KAY training is being held at: TBC

Edu-KAY is a unique program created specifically to increase learning and time-on-task in a fun, creative, active way. Designed by licensed classroom teachers and certified Kidding Around Yoga instructors (RYT, RCYT through Yoga Alliance), Edu-KAY seamlessly blends original music, games, traditional Yoga poses, breathing, and mindfulness into the classroom schedule. Using Edu-KAY throughout the school day will keep students motivated, alert, and focused.

Evidence is mounting that Yoga postures, breathing, and mindfulness practices positively influence our health, mood, energy, and peace of mind. Bring those benefits directly to your students while giggling and moving through songs and games, unique to the Edu-KAY program. Typically an Edu-KAY workshop is 2 hours but I’m flexible… haha get it?

Benefits of the Edu-KAY program:

Yoga postures reduce negative affect, boost brain activity, and reawaken the body through backbends, forward folds, and twists.
Proper breathing energizes the brain and body, refocuses attention, and reduces anxiety.
Original KAY music encourages active imagination, kinesthetic activity, and attention control.
Mindfulness exercises benefit all learning styles, reduce transition time, and promote on-task behavior.
A regular Yoga practice improves emotional health, self-confidence, self-esteem, and resiliency.
Edu-KAY training provides:

Detailed instructions for each activity and song, taught by me as a registered Kidding Around Yoga teacher with certification through Yoga Alliance
A manual detailing the activities and songs for reference
Ten FREE song downloads to use immediately in your classroom
A private Edu-KAY Facebook forum to ask questions, share ideas, and get inspired!
Opportunities for continuing education in Yoga through Kidding Around Yoga’s many programs
