Our Mission: Helping children find balance through the self-empowering practice of yoga, mindfulness, and play.
The Birth of Yogi Cubs
When I first started practicing yoga I was surprised by the positive impact it made on my mindset. Yoga can:
-improve strength, flexibility and balance
-improve physical & mental health
I often wonder how different things might have been if I had started my practice as a child. I started looking for yoga programs for my daughter so she would be better equipped to handle life than I was growing up.
-I wanted a program built for children, not one where parents could bring their children to their own classes.
-I wanted something fun that she would not start dreading after a few weeks.
-I wanted something flexible and affordable because it is so hard for us to fit extra activities into our lives.
Most importantly, I wanted something real. A place where my daughter would feel a sense of belonging while being her authentic self.
I completed a 95 hour RCYT (yoga alliance approved) teacher training program with Yogees Yoga 4 Kids so I could teach yoga classes designed JUST FOR KIDS!
Hi! I’m Jessica! I’m a mother of one of my own and an almost mother to 3 steps. Yes! our house is pretty crazy most of the time.
I got my BS Degree in Communications from UT Austin, (Hook’em Horns!), earned my MBA from the University of Dallas, and worked for many years in higher education. My experience working with those “adult children” 🙂 showed me how much our young ones need a yoga & mindfulness practice in their lives.
Originally, I completed my children’s yoga teacher training out of selfishness to teach my own lil yogi, but as I learned, I also realized I should be sharing the benefits with as many kids as possible. In addition to the Yogees Yoga 4 Kids certification, I’ve also completed the children’s yoga teacher training with GoGoYoga and Cosmic Kids . What can I say, I have a love of learning.
