Kidding Around Yoga With South Florida

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 southflorida@kiddingaroundyoga.com. I can’t wait to share KAY with you and the little Yogis in your life!



About Kidding Around Yoga of South Florida

Greetings Friends!

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 southflorida@kiddingaroundyoga.com or 561-702-6131. I look forward to bringing a more peaceful world with you. 

Namaste, 

Stephanie Dorr

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.

School Programs

Yoga, meditation and mindfulness is gaining more support at schools.

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 southflorida@kiddingaroundyoga.com to discuss how to meet your school’s needs.

Teacher Trainings

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

Classroom Workshops

I am thrilled to offer Edu-KAY, a program created BY educators FOR educators!

Edu-KAY’s methods seamlessly blend mindfulness and movement into any learning environment. Through KAY’s active songs and activities, children will get a brain-break, energize, refocus and be ready to return to their activity. Each Edu-KAY activity lasts between one and ten minutes and can be practiced in any environment, from a classroom to a gym, from a backyard to a living room. Edu-KAY is truly designed to meet the classroom-management needs of every teacher, coach, therapist, and instructor that attends an Edu-KAY workshop.

Benefits of the Edu-KAY program:

  • Yoga postures reduce negative affect, boost brain activity, and reawaken the body through backbends, forward folds, and twists.
  • Proper breathing energizes the brain and body, refocuses attention, and reduces anxiety.
  • Original KAY music encourages active imagination, kinesthetic activity, and attention control.
  • Mindfulness exercises benefit all learning styles, reduce transition time, and promote on-task behavior.
  • A regular Yoga practice improves emotional health, self-confidence, self-esteem, and resiliency.

Edu-KAY training provides:

  • Detailed instructions for each activity and song, taught by me as a registered Kidding Around Yoga teacher with certification through Yoga Alliance
  • A manual detailing the activities and songs for reference
  • Ten FREE song downloads to use immediately in your classroom
  • A private Edu-KAY Facebook forum to ask questions, share ideas, and get inspired!
  • Opportunities for continuing education in Yoga through Kidding Around Yoga’s many programs

Edu-KAY workshops are available throughout the year, and can be held at your school location. For even more information on Edu-KAY, click here. If you are interested in hosting a workshop, please submit a request here
