Yoga for Children Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Yoga for Children Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Yoga for Children into their practice and philosophy.

Yoga for children is a gentle, non-competitive form of exercise that promotes flexibility while teaching children relaxation. Yoga for children can help increase concentration and reduce agitation. It is not a performance oriented practice. Yoga teaches children how to feel connected with their bodies and minds. Yoga is very beneficial to all children. Children learn how to stretch their muscles and keep their bodies strong and flexible. Classes are 45 minutes, and tend to be playful and fun.

Indira Kate Kalmbach, Founder, Pavones Yoga Center Costa Rica.. Nature-based yoga teacher trainings

Indira Kate Kalmbach understands yoga as a physical, mental, and emotional discipline with the potential to transform human being-ness. Her yoga teaching embodies an ecological sense of the world-community which includes all of nature, exiling nothing. Through a seamless weaving of physical alignment, emotional attuning, and a deep understanding of the human psyche, Indira creates inspiring yoga classes that invite students to practice radical self-acceptance and to leave class feeling fully present, grounded and awakened.

My yoga journey started many moons ago when my Mom suggested my sister and I take a class.  ​I don't remember much about the class itself, but I do recall speaking enthusiastically about it afterward.  I also remember the smell of the satsuma oil that was burned throughout the class, and the various intrigues of my teacher that day, who wore endless strings of beads around her neck and had glittery, bright eyes and really wild curly hair.  Most strikingly, I felt calm.

If you can't smile then you're doing this wrong

I have been practicing Yoga for 5 years and now wish to share the knowledge of self and Yoga I have collected with others.  My classes are casual and a great place to start a practice or to grow your practice reaching for more advanced poses.  I am an RYT 200, trained in CPR and First Aid in the event of any emergency.  I have studied Yoga for Trauma, Chair and Chakra Yoga as I reach into the deeply personal healing work I feel called for.  I am also a Local Church Lay Servant in the United Methodist Church.

Kathleen's first yoga instructor was her mother, who began teaching yoga when Kathleen was a teenager. Kathleen found yoga extremely helpful for her back pain related to scoliosis. She introduced it to many friends during college to reduce stress and dove deeper into her practice during a semester abroad in India. She enjoys sharing her love of yoga with others by helping them gain greater body awareness and most importantly, relax.

A devoted yogi who will help you find the yoga that serves you best. Private appointments available for meditation, guided relaxation, asana, and yoga nidra. Kristen incorporates yogic, Ayurvedic, and psychological principles in assisting her fellow yogis through their mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.
