Kidding Around Yoga Katie

I am a dedicated Child and Adult Yoga Teacher and Massage Therapist nurturing and improving the well-being of those who have experienced the pressures that life and society can place on us.

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 Katie

Katie Brandes, LMT, E-RYT 500, RCYT, RPYT, YACEP, CLYT

Katie Brandes began yoga in 2005 after experiencing extreme anxiety brought on by stress. She sought yoga as a means of relief and instead found a new way of life. Years later she was inspired to enroll in Hatha yoga teacher training. She decided that what she wanted to do with her life was to help others that have experienced the pressures that life and society can place on us. Yoga is the means by which she can finally help others and share her natural tendency to nurture. Though everyone can benefit from yoga, she wants to teach to those who truly need it.

After completing her Yoga adult certification, Katie immediately sought out a method to teach yoga to children. Kidding Around Yoga was a short jaunt from Orlando to St. Pete, Florida. She went for training but came back completely changed. Sharing yoga with kids is a passion that drives her every single day. And Kidding Around Yoga is the method she believes in.

Katie is now a licensed massage therapist, certified in Hatha Yoga, Kids Yoga, Chair Yoga, Senior Yoga, Laughter Yoga, Yoga for Trauma, and Prenatal Yoga. She is a 95-hour Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher, 85-hour Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher, and a graduate of Pose by Pose Yoga in the 500 Hour level of Yoga Training. She is also a Yoga trainer and mentor with hopes that she can help change lives for the better by teaching yoga to families local and worldwide. She resides in east Orlando with her husband, daughter, and many pets. She is a mother first and foremost. But yoga and bodywork are her passion.

Private Yoga Sessions

I also offer private yoga sessions (for one or more students) catered to your needs. This will benefit you if you’re hoping to:

  • Develop your practice in a quiet, supportive environment
  • Move beyond your current practice to a more advanced class
  • Build self-confidence before practicing as part of a group
  • Exercise at home as a new mother or prenatal student
  • Learn or deepen your understanding of yogic philosophy and pranayama (breath work)

All private sessions begin with a free hour long consultation so that together we may identify your long-term or short-term goals, discuss what yoga means to you, and develop a plan to create your personalized yoga practice. Whether you prefer gentle, prenatal, restorative, high energy or even a fast-paced high intensity experience, your sessions will be built around your preferences, goals, and skill level.

If you simply want to work on a particular pose, set of poses, meditation, or yoga philosophy for one session, that is also available.

The price starts at $60/hour, which may increase depending on the distance traveled and the length and size of the class.
