Hi friends! It’s been a while but I’ve been working on some great stuff for you guys! I spent the past two days with a phenomenal group of women, all from different backgrounds, all pulled together for the sake of Yoga. In fact, we all found ourselves through different avenues drawn to become Certified Kids Yoga Teachers. I found out about Kidding Around Yoga through looking further into Yogaville, which is kind of like the Virginia Mecca for Yoga. I poked around on their website a bit thinking, this would be something amazing I could offer to the Richmond community and they had an online class I could take in my own time! When I found out there was going to be an in-person training only an hour from my house I took full advantage.
“Our interview series continues with Haris Lender, the founder of Kidding Around Yoga (KAY), a fantastic teacher training for children’s yoga. What sets Kidding Around Yoga apart is their unique approach to teaching children’s Yoga through a series of original music that makes it fun. They also have a funtastic sleepover camp called Camp Kidding Around Yoga. Haris shares with us her thoughts about helping the next generation to learn to live mindfully, Wuf Shanti, and more. In this time, with what is going on in the world right now, we can’t let the violence and negativity win. We must stand together, focus on our children and spreading love and kindness so that they will grow up to learn to live in peace. Love wins, we must believe that. Release the fear, be positive. Peace begins with us! We were honored to take the KAY course and become certified to teach children’s yoga, honored to film the “Every Little Cell” video with Wuf Shanti, and honored to speak with Haris Lender. We hope you enjoy this interview. You can learn more about her and KAY at www.kiddingaroundyoga.com.”
