Kidding Around Yoga With Barbara

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 Barbara

“Miss Barbara” Barbara Gail, B.A. Education, is a natural and masterful teacher. She is a professional hand-drummer and percussionist, and since 1994 has been sharing the joys of rhythmic music and movement, hand-drumming and expressive dance, with thousands of people of all ages, abilities and challenges, in her classes, performances, and programs.

She says, “For children, learning and growing isn’t always easy, and it’s never too early to develop techniques for a healthy mind and body. I chose Kidding Around Yoga™ because we take the science of yoga seriously, while making it accessible and fun for kids through music and play. Now teaching KAY is my favorite way to share positive life skills with children! While learning yoga postures we develop coordination, flexibility, strength and balance, plus the added benefits of mindfulness, relaxation, deep breathing, calming, and centering.”

KAY classes with Miss Barbara cultivate creativity, cooperation, kindness towards self and others, positivity, an attitude of gratitude, clear minds and joyful hearts.

Along with her husband, Jeff Hanna, Barbara is co-owner of the well-known and loved The Rhythm Inlet music store and teaching studio, once located in Central Maine and now in Nokomis, Florida.

Barbara is a Certified Kidding Around Yoga™ Instructor and Licensee, and a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher. She’s a Natural Choice Award winner for ‘Higher Calling’, ‘Favorite Children’s Program’, ‘Business of the Year’ and ‘Woman of the Year’.

She is honored to also have co-created and co-recorded the KAY song “Drum a Drum Yoga” with KAY founder, Haris Lender.

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.
