Making Kids Feel Better Inside & Out
How we got here
My love for movement and dance began at 5 years old when I enrolled in my first ballet class. Dancing throughout my school years, it was only a matter of time before I began my yoga journey. I have been practicing yoga for 30 years and teaching for 12.
I graduated with a Masters in Early Childhood teaching from NYU and spent the first 20 years of my career combining my interests in education, child development and psychology in a variety of ways. I have written a Literacy Program for years K to HSC and have worked for international companies training staff and supervisors in teaching literacy, as well as working with children to enhance their literacy skills.
In 2005, I created KarmaKidsYoga with the intention of enhancing children’s lives with the many gifts of yoga. To date, I have completed over 1000 hours of yoga training including yoga, yoga therapy and meditation, Next Generation Teacher Training for 2 to 13 year olds and the Radiant Child Yoga Program Levels 1, 2 and 3 (infant to teens) For a full Training Biography, please visit JustBreatheYoga.
In 2006 I created Fun with a Twist - Kids Yoga Teacher Training - for adults who want to learn how to teach kids yoga.
To date, I have taught yoga to thousands of preschool aged kids and trained hundreds of adults through the Fun with a Twist Kids Yoga Training.
In 2015, with the growing demand for quality kids yoga in childcare centres, I created a specific workshop for Early Childhood Educators to enhance both their own understanding and experience of yoga, and how it promotes wellbeing, and to give them the tools and skills to weave yoga into their classroom day and thereby help their students to reduce anxiety, ease transitions and become stronger, more flexible, calm and focused. I am so pleased that the course is now a NESA accredited workshop, allowing teachers to gain Professional Development points towards maintaining their teacher accreditation.
KarmaKidsYoga unites my passion for yoga with my respect for children and their willingness to explore with their body, mind and spirit. Having practised yoga for over 30 years, I know too well the extraordinary benefits it brings to one's body, mind and spirit.
My hope is that every childcare facility will offer yoga, meditation and mindfulness to their students so that, from an early age, they develop resilience and compassion with which to navigate through the ups and downs of life. Our mission at KarmaKidsYoga is to create a positive experience that the children will carry into adulthood, and to encourage them to feel good about themselves both inside and out.
I hope that you will invite us into your Centre so that we can share the many joys and gifts of yoga with your students.
