Welcome to Kidding Around Yoga with Alex!
Originally from Chicago, I now live just outside of Vienna, Austria. I became a certified yoga instructor through YogaView in Chicago in 2013, a certified KAY instructor in 2017 and a Kidding Around Yoga trainer in 2018. I’ve lead several trainings for KAY teachers all over Europe and in Chicago, and I love teaching Kidding Around Yoga classes, as well as birthday parties and special events for children in the Vienna area.
Aside from teaching adult and kids yoga classes, I have been a classroom teacher since 2006, first as a special education teacher in Chicago Public Schools, and now as a Montessori teacher in Austria. I have worked with kids from all kinds of backgrounds, with all kinds of different stresses, worries, strengths and needs. Naturally, I have learned from them and I have evolved my own teaching practices over the years, which now incorporates mindfulness, meditation and yoga in the classroom.
Through Kidding Around Yoga, yoga comes alive for children. It is engaging for children of all ages by incorporating playful songs and games. At the same time, we introduce the more serious side of yoga to children in an accessible way. I love teaching Kidding Around Yoga classes because it brings joy and creativity, as well as peace and calm to children. It gives them tools to manage their stresses and challenges, and of course, they have tons of fun doing it!
