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!
Outside of teaching kid’s yoga classes locally, I also work as a Trainer for KAY. I lead 2-day workshops teaching those who are interested in getting certified to teach kid’s yoga, and I also am trained to lead Edu-KAY workshops. Edu-KAY is a 6-hour professional development workshop designed to give teachers, school counselors and administrators the tools to implement yoga, meditation and mindfulness into their classrooms.
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!
$175 for up to 10 children ($8 for each additional child)
$150 for up to 10 children ($5 for each additional child)
*These packages can be customized to fit your needs. For very small yogis (ages 2-5), parents are welcome to join their little ones.
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.

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.
