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

About Tracy

Greetings, my name is Tracy VandenHeuvel. I love my family, my friends, my dogs, being outdoors with nature, and traveling the world to explore new places. I am happy to be introducing myself to you as a Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) licensee and the owner of Yoga’na Luv It, LLC. I am starting this new adventure in hopes of providing KAY to the children of beautiful southwest Wisconsin. KAY lessons are centered on the embodiment of kindness and gratitude towards others, self, and respecting and appreciating the peace of the world around us. My Kidding Around Yoga classes provide kids with the benefits of song, dance, storytelling, crafts, meditation and relaxation, all combined with kid-centered yoga elements to support children to focus, calm, and cope with everyday stressors.

As a Psychotherapist (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) working with families and children of all ages, I have appreciated the significance of guiding children through the process of learning to understand and manage their big emotions. What better way than through Yoga it’s a natural way to reach children. Initially my intent was to use the KAY method of teaching with patients in my professional practice. However, after completing the training and utilizing the techniques with families, I recognized how the therapeutic strategies, both matched, and channeled my passion for working with children. It was then with the support of a friend (and fellow KAY trained teacher) that I decided to start Yoga’na Luv It, LLC and began offering Kids yoga classes. KAY’s engaging music and instructive methods provide opportunities for youngsters who are eager to learn and engage their minds, hearts, and bodies in creative and interactive ways. I believe that through the practice of yoga, I can provide the tools children and parents need to help them lead a more balanced life.

I am eager to share Kidding Around Yoga with budding yogi’s/yogini’s in the communities of Southwest Wisconsin. Please join me in spreading, love, light, peace and kindness, all while having fun with Kidding Around Yoga.
Namaste.

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.

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 teach all troop/den levels and can even do private sessions as well.

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