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 her personal life and professional career, Erika has found the laughter and smiles of others to be uplifting. It would be no surprise to see her juggling or holding a glitter jar to make someone grin from ear to ear.  She questioned “how can I bring a little more positivity to all”?  Once introduced to yoga, Erika knew that would be the “golden ticket” for sharing peace, curiosity and relaxation with the people around her.

With her studies and employment geared towards education and counseling children, adults and families she first introduced the idea of mindful breathing to the people around her.  Seeing firsthand the positive impact conscience breathing had on so many, Erika knew it was time to gain more knowledge about yoga.

Children are the future, so she decided to start there. Erika received her certification to teach children through Kidding Around Yoga first and then set out for more training. She went on to earn her 200 hour yoga teacher training certificate from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.  She continued on to attend Kripalu Yoga in the Schools teacher training, Laughter Yoga Certification and is an Amrit Yoga Nidra facilitator for adults and children.

Erika currently teaches yoga to all ages.

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.
