Kidding Around Yoga With Shelley Dean

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.

For further information, check out KAY Global or contact me at I can’t wait to share KAY with you and the little Yogis in your life!

About Shelley Dean

Shelley Dean and Stacy Shapiro, E-RYT-200 have been working with kids and families for the past 15 years. In 2010 Shelley founded Rhythm ‘n’ Ruach, a musical and interactive program for children of all ages and adults of all ages. When Shelley and Stacy met during a Rhythm ‘n’ Ruach music class, their passion for sharing yoga and meditation with children and families came out and together have brought Kidding Around Yoga to St. Louis.  Shelley is a dedicated wife and mother of 4.  Stacy is a wonderful mother of 3, and a Nana to 4 adorable children.

Class Schedule

Kidding Around Family Yoga Classes.

The methods we use in a KAY class are insanely creative and will keep your child practicing yoga for years to come! Singing, dancing, massaging, jogging and storytelling are just a few of the techniques we use, but the possibilities are endless. Our classes are geared  towards families with kids ages 18 months-12 years old. However, you know how “flexible” yogis can be! If you want to bring an infant or your grandmother – just ask!


All Levels Encouraged.

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.
