About Synthia

Synthia Gerson
RYT -500 (adult yoga teacher) I have completed a 200 and 300 yoga teacher training which focused on yin and restorative yoga and & RCYT (children’s yoga teacher) and Kidding Around Yoga teacher.
I worked as a classroom teacher for 20 years before leaving education in 2021 to focus on teaching kids yoga and mindfulness as a Kidding Around Yoga teacher. I completed 200 hour yoga and mindfulness for children and teens with complex needs with Shawnee Thorton Hardy of Asanas for Autism and Special Needs and Yoga Therapy for Youth. This training included 95 hours training in yoga and mindfulness for children and teens with an emphasis on inclusion and accessibility.

Teaching kids yoga provides me with the opportunity to combine my experiences as an educator, my master’s degree in children’s literature, yoga, and bringing yoga to all kids. Combine my being a registered child’s yoga teacher with Kidding Around Yoga songs, games, and activities for an amazing experience for your child.

Please reach out to me for your Kidding Around Yoga class needs in Matthews, Charlotte, and Waxhaw (at Spirited Sprout LLC)  NC. I am a Yoga Yeladim teacher, if you are looking for kids yoga with a Jewish twist. I can offer inclusive classes with additional support for the diverse needs of children including autism, ADHD,and SPD and adaptive yoga classes as well. I look forward to sharing the magical experiences of Kidding Around Yoga with your family!

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. I offer yoga classes for all troop levels including: Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadets, and Ambassadors. I also offer private sessions for Girl Scout Juliette, for an individual girl who isn’t in a troop.

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 look forward to hearing from your organization to schedule a class soon.
