Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) has been an incredibly positive addition to my life. I’ve been working for kids and with kids for 15 years, but since becoming a certified KAY instructor, I’ve never had quite this level of fun and meaning from it. I’m excited to see where this journey takes me and would love for you and your children to be part of it!
Although it feels like another lifetime ago, I worked for the federal government in a Crimes Against Children Unit serving as a data collector and research assistant. After I became a parent of two (really cool!) kids, and making the decision to stay at home with them for several years, I found a new career as a teaching assistant for my son’s preschool. I taught 2-5 year olds for five years, and now I’m ready to expand that education by sharing what I’ve gained from the peacefulness that comes from yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. I’m incredibly grateful for the freedom to explore this new passion of mine and want to share it with EVERYONE!
Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) certifies their teachers to educate kids with yoga, meditation, and mindfulness to provide exercise, stillness, and a connection to the world around them. Our teachers learn and teach the same methods to provide consistency and familiarity wherever you may take a KAY class.
As I was sitting in my teacher training class, I had an overwhelming feeling that this was exactly where I needed to be. Haris Lender has set magic into motion by providing the world with Kidding Around Yoga.
I am a kids yoga instructor to continue reminding myself that play is important, laughing is essential, and that peace is obtainable in a world that can feel a bit out of control. I’m grateful I continue to be available at home for my family, but look forward to being part of your family too. My heart is full when I think of the kids I will connect with by showing them a path I wish I would’ve been shown 40 years ago!
Join me as we make magic together and have a lot of fun doing it!
For more information, here’s a recent article in the Tampa Bay Times “Everybody’s Business” column by Danielle Hauser about the work I’ve been doing:

I work with all levels of Scouts, and would love to work with yours!
If you are interested in setting up a personal class for your troop, contact me.
Set up your team building, end-of-season/year, neighborhood or birthday party with me! There doesn’t need to be a “reason” to introduce kids to yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. Contact me for pricing.
Hello Troops and neighborhood leaders!
I would love the opportunity to introduce the Science of Yoga to your troop 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 Girl Scout Yoga story, a special Girl Scout song, meditation techniques, games, activities, and much more!
I teach all troop levels in Girl Scout and can even do a private session for any Girl Scout Juliette’s.
I look forward to hearing from your organization to schedule a class soon.
Kidding Around Yoga with Tina teaches kids yoga in Hillsborough County, and all surrounding counties in the Tampa bay area.
