Twist Kids Yoga was founded in 2014 by Mary Beth Bender. What began as a small venture in bringing yoga and mindfulness to kids, expanded into a registered children’s yoga school in Charlotte, NC. Shona Baldoni joined forces with Mary Beth in 2016 when they launched the Twist Kids Yoga Teacher Training Program. Since then, the work has evolved and continues to grow in the Charlotte area.
Our mission is to educate young minds in mindfulness, yoga postures, compassion and relaxation with the goal to create a more balanced and loving world.
Classes are designed to teach the children how to engage with their Whole Self and the world around them through the practices of yoga and mindfulness. We use these principles to educate them on concentration, self-regulation, healthy living, heart centered communication and being present with the nature of life.
We teach in schools, studios, community centers and pretty much anywhere else where joy and love are accepted.
