For Kids & Parents
Kelly has taught kids yoga to more than 225,000 children in the metro Los Angeles area. During her first few visits to public and private classrooms, the children often say, “Hi, Yoga!” Soon thereafter, they greet her with “Hi, Ms. Kelly!” as the enthusiasm grows from weekly classes together. Kelly’s Hi Yoga Teacher Training was one of the first Children’s Yoga Teacher Trainings accredited by Yoga Alliance (RCYT) and also approved by LAUSD for a salary point for school teachers.

The SCHOOL Kids Yoga & Mindfulness Training should be part of the teacher credential program as part of classroom management.–Camille S., LAUSD High School Teacher
Ms. Kelly's class has taught me to be a better teacher and a better person. I am kinder to my students and to myself because I now think with a calm heart. I have created a classroom environment where each act of kindness is celebrated, where students share their weaknesses to create strength, where learning happens naturally.–Ioana C. LAUSD High School Teacher
I have nothing but high praise for the course in School Kids Yoga provided by Ms. Kelly! Ms. Kelly is a wonderful instructor who is so knowledgeable in her practice! I have a better understanding of and felt equipped to immediately implement strategies that students can use to keep focused, build comprehension, and problem-solve effectively. I have seen great results from my students in the classroom and in their personal relations. I highly recommend that teachers take this course for the benefit of themselves and their students!–Andrea B. LAUSD Middle School Teacher
Great subject to use for my students with special needs. I feel all teachers need to take the SCHOOL Kids Yoga course as it will help them personally and with their relationships with their students. Very relevant for this time in our society.–Diana L. LAUSD Elementary School Teacher
