Known as the Gandhi of the Midwest (not really but she’s working on it), legend has it Amanda El Khoury was promoting peace before she could talk.
Fueled by her lifelong obsession with adding joy to the world—she became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Masters Degree in Social Work; focusing primarily on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in the school setting.
But the ante was upped once Amanda became a Mama; turning her passion for spreading love into a full-blown mission. This led her to earn a Yoga Teaching Certification from Kidding Around Yoga where she teaches yoga to kids and families by mixing poses with meditation/mindfulness/breathing techniques, then adding fun music/games as the cherry on top.
She wants to use her social work background and positive energy to truly teach the foundational yoga skills to amazing little yogis all the while having TONS of fun! Peace DOES begin with her and she cannot wait to share this amazing gift of Kidding Around Yoga with you and your little one!
Fun fact: She was voted Class Clown in high school, which means she’s been an expert at ‘kidding around’ for many many moons!
I would love to travel to your Daycare, Preschool or Home to customize a Yoga Class! In addition, we can have a class at Jadabug’s Kids Boutique in La Quinta for individuals, families, groups, or even a playdate group! Lets spread the Kidding Around Yoga energy all around The Desert! Please check my Facebook Page, Kidding Around Yoga with Amanda El Khoury, for regularly scheduled classes and events! If you do not have Facebook please feel free to email me at amandaelkhoury@
Once a month I have a kids healthy cooking and yoga class! Each little yogi is the chef and the caregiver is the assistant. Please check my Facebook Page or email me for monthly dates and availability.
I would love to customize a special birthday party for you little yogi! You share with me what your yogi loves and I can create a yoga class based on that! Please contact me for your favorite little yogis birthday party.
I would like to use my social work background paired with children’s yoga teacher credential, and my Trauma Informed Yoga for Youth Certificate to help your little yogi.
If your non-profit organization could benefit from little kid yoga, I’d love to donate my time. Please contact me to share the yoga needs of your organization and how I can help!
