"Harmony Kids Yoga taught a wonderful series of kids yoga classes with my grade three students. They planned a variety of activities around a different theme each week. The children loved them and were very engaged from the beginning of class to the end. Activities included exercises, games, enjoyable songs and stories, all carefully planned to enhance the children's understanding in an atmosphere of play and fun. The perfect pacing and timing seemed effortless. It was a joy to watch!"

"The Harmony Kids Yoga program offered us an opportunity to be physical and practice mindfulness in a fun and dynamic setting. Students learned traditional elements of yoga while building a sense of self-awareness and class community. It was delightful to see my students’ enthusiasm both when challenging themselves and when working together. I appreciated her innovative teaching style and the way she tailored the program to suit our class needs. Each yoga class was inspiring, fun and inviting. We loved the lively group games and meaningful stories. My students thought it was super fun learning the yoga poses! I would highly recommend this program– it is an enjoyable and imaginative way to expose children to the benefits of yoga & a powerful way to foster a sense of community in the classroom."
