Kidding Around Yoga With Dietrich

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


About Kidding Around Yoga


Every Kidding Around Yoga class offers a complete, age-appropriate Yoga practice including breathing instruction, relaxation techniques, stretching and strengthening poses, all using fun-filled music, games, and imagination. KAY’s secret is our playfulness, keeping your child motivated, excited, and moving. This is not your typical Yoga class. A KAY class gets children singing, dancing, skipping, marching, jogging, shaking, laughing, hopping, limbo-ing, and storytelling ALL while practicing Yoga to original KAY music.

Kidding Around Yoga classes are a unique opportunity to give your child skills that will provide a sense of balance, calm, and power for years to come.

For further information, check out KAY Global or contact me at Dietrich@kiddingaroundyoga.com. I can’t wait to share KAY with you and the little Yogis in your life!

To hear what Harlen, Lacey, and LilyJane had to share about why they love yoga, from feeling strong in a Warrior pose to wrapping up in a mat like a Sushi Roll, please read this local article for Latitude 61 North Magazine. https://www.adn.com/special-sections/61degnorth/2017/06/05/yoga-all-around/

In Alaska, we realize how important it is to Play Every Day! Kidding Around Yoga is a great way to Play Every Day!

 
Strike a pose: Yoga helps children with flexibility, relaxation and more

​Kids today live in a busy world of school, homework, sports, and activities designed to keep them busy and nurture their growing minds and bodies. But doing nothing is important, too. Well, not really nothing, but taking time to relax the mind and body, stepping away from the pressures of the world, and learning to be still and calm are also important to healthy development.

Yoga can help children learn techniques for relaxation, frustration and anger management, and handling stress and anxiety. Physically, it also helps with flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness.

“Proper breathing is a great way to energize, learn concentration and reduce stress,” said Dietrich Johnson, a children’s yoga instructor in Anchorage.

“Standing poses build posture and strength. Balancing poses develop focus, strength, balance and poise. Difficult poses build self-esteem by teaching children that they can achieve what they set out to do all on their own. And relaxation poses reduce stress and teach kids how to focus.”

Pretending to be animals is a good way of introducing basic yoga poses, said Johnson.

Girl Scouts

Greetings Alaska Scout Leaders!

  • I am a Certified Kidding Around Yoga, Mindfulness, and Mindfulness Instructor.

  • I am also Girl Scout of Alaska Troop Leader with a combined Daisy-Brownie-Junior Troop of 20 scouts! We are part of the Mid-Town Service Unit and our troop loves to do Kidding Around Yoga!

  • I would love the opportunity to help your scouts also learn about this ancient science that promotes health and well-being.

  • The Science of Yoga helps with concentration and teaches a healthy respect for ourselves, others, and nature. It also gives you the needed tools to deal with the stress of daily life.

  • As an added bonus, Kidding Around Yoga now offers a beautiful fun patch!

  • Kidding Around Yoga is stress management for children. 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.

  • We do this through the use of cardiovascular conditioning, original songs, games, storytelling, and relaxation techniques. Kidding Around Yoga reaches children through the way they learn best—play!

  • I would love the opportunity to introduce the science of yoga to your troop(s)/den(s) and help them earn their Kidding Around Yoga Fun Patch! This class can be customized to meet your needs regarding theme, length, age group, as well as location. 

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

  • Contact Dietrich by phone/text at 907-339-YOGA (907-339-9642) or by email at Dietrich@kiddingaroundyoga.com to Schedule your Kidding Around Yoga class!
