Kidding Around Yoga With Kristi

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 Kristi

I am a certified personal trainer (NSCA), a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher, 95-hr RCCYT, a former preschool teacher, a wife, and a mother of two wonderful boys. Since obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Physical Education in 1994, I have had an obsession with sharing my love of all things health and fitness related with people of all ages. My former position as a preschool teacher and currently as a children’s yoga instructor has allowed me to reach many tiny, wonderful humans who are excited to move and dance and get strong!

Kidding Around Yoga has brought a whole new level of experiences to my existing classes, and I can’t wait to share peace, love, joy and yoga to as many children as possible!

Girl Scouts

Hello Girl Scout troops and neighborhood leaders!

I would love the opportunity to introduce the Science of Yoga to your troop 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, which will include a Girl Scout Yoga story, meditation techniques, games, activities, and much more!

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

Yoga in Schools

Children today live in a very fast-paced world. Between pressures from school, extra curricular activities, their peers, parents, and society, the hustle and bustle of every day life can quickly wear down on a child’s inner peace and joy. All of these pressures and expectations can lead to a whole lot of stress, and while most kids are not familiar with the concept of stress, they can still experience what it feels like without giving it a label or name.

During the 2018-2019 school year, I was able to spend some time in the Peninsula School District in several different elementary schools thanks to the generosity of the PTA/PTO groups. At each school, I would spend 1 week teaching yoga in the PE classes. Every student had the opportunity to experience yoga and meditation during their designated PE specialist time. I also got to meet with the teachers and explains what I was doing, why I was doing it, and how they can implement these concepts into their classrooms.

I would love to come to your child’s school as well! If this is something you are interested in, please have your PTA/PTO representatives contact me directly.
