Kidding Around Yoga With Erika America

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.

About Erika America

In my personal life and professional career, I have found the laughter and smiles of others to be the most fulfilling. That is why one of my favorite hobbies is juggling and call myself Ms. Erika America. Having taken every opportunity in my life to inspire people and put smiles on their faces, I began by earning a degree in Sociology and Psychology leading to a career in therapeutic situations and learning environments. In my studies and employment, I have learned that mindfulness and positive thinking are great tools for all and should be shared. I continued on my journey and found yoga. I practiced yoga for many years with wonderful teachers who all added something different. I recognized that the benefits of yoga, positive thinking and mindfulness could be useful for children in their everyday lives. So I became a certified Kids Yoga teacher through Kidding Around Yoga. I am also a certified 200 hour Kripalu yoga instructor. You might f ind me meowing in the Cat Pose; balancing a peacock feather on my nose; or just Kidding Around with the children in my class.

kidding Around Yoga with Erika America teaches kids yoga in Harrisburg, PA and the surrounding Capital area region.

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 a private sessions as well.

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