My name is Stephanie Dorr and I am a Kidding Around Yoga Teacher and Trainer, as well as the Director of Kidding Around Yoga of South Florida. With several years experience of teaching yoga to children, I have decided to make a deeper contribution into our communities by offering teacher trainings and Classroom Workshops (Edu-KAY) for educators and school employees in South Florida, as well as continue my work with children through my school programs. As a trainer, I help people from all walks of life who work with children, to engage and teach our kids mindfulness and movement, along with stress reduction techniques, behavior of self-regulation and creating a more peaceful and harmonious environment at school and at home.
My mission is to create a more peaceful world through education. With the Kidding Around Yoga curriculum, children are excited and enjoy learning new ways to calm their minds, while stretching their bodies and moving to our wonderful original music. Parents, teachers and school administrators are seeing the value of mindfulness in schools, and Kidding Around Yoga presents it to children in a fun and engaging way.
To find out more about my school programs, see the School Programs section below. If you’d like to bring Kidding Around Yoga to your school, for either students or teachers, please contact me at or 561-702-6131. I look forward to bringing a more peaceful world with you.
Both educators and parents alike are seeing the value in yoga programs within school curriculums as well as after school programs.
When mindfulness, movement and meditation is taught in a school setting, students feel a sense of unity in their self discovery, giving them security in an unsecure world. Coupled with age-appropriate poses and practices, these programs build self esteem, camaraderie, and appreciation for their fellow students. Studies show that schools with yoga and meditation programs have reduced occurrences of disciplinary actions and higher test scores.
Kidding Around Yoga of South Florida is proud to offer in-school or after-school programs in public and private schools across South Florida. Please contact us at 561-702-6131 or email to discuss how to meet your school’s needs.

As a Kidding Around Yoga Trainer, I have the honor and the pleasure of conducting KAY Teacher Trainings across South Florida. Our training is full of interesting and fun ways to share this ancient practice with children ages 2-17.
Our trainings are great for anyone who works with kids on any level, but KAY isn’t merely a kids yoga training program. It’s an entire program that will change your life. KAY is a community of like minded folks, a lifestyle, a career, and an adventure. You will learn the Science of Yoga, especially geared for young yogis.
You will learn creative instruction in meditation, breathing practices, relaxation, poses, games & activities, stress management for kids, how to run a kids Yoga day camp, kids Yoga birthday parties and so much more. KAY has a unique approach to teaching children’s Yoga and we even have over 50 original kid’s yoga songs, full of yoga poses and cardio that will be available for you to download at the start of your training. KAY kids LOVE this music, and so will you. Take a look at a favorite, The Yoga Slide.
