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 Karuna Yoga Teacher Training was a wonderful, life-changing experience. Kelly's training taught me so much about myself. My yoga and meditation practice changed in such a positive way.–Lauren F.
I like yoga because it makes me feel calm, not crazy and my brain works more.–Jasmine, age 7
When teaching my first Kids Yoga class, I saw that their knowledge of yoga was simply on exercise and funny animal poses. From our Hi Yoga Training, I knew how to explain the fundamentals: breathing, pause and caring for the heart. I had no idea how much joy teaching kids would bring my own heart.–Veronica V.
Teaching SCHOOL classes to my Kindergarten students brings calm to my classroom, helps my students focus, and builds their inner and outer strength. This all helps create a positive, calm environment in which the students can learn.–Kathleen B., Kindergarten Teacher
