Online Twist Kids Yoga Training

Coming September 1st

We have spent the last few months preparing a quality self paced online Twist Kids Yoga training for teachers, parents, caregivers and anyone who works or plays with children. During these changing times we realize that everyone has different needs and expectations for how they want to spend their time. This training gives you the space and time to complete a course that will give you all of the tips & tools for sharing yoga & mindfulness to children ages 4-12. We have created a curriculum for you to work at your own pace with quizzes, essay questions, a final project and several videos and slides full of content.

We are also in the process of brewing up more personable face to face trainings beginning on zoom in the next few months. There’s something coming for all your needs.

We hope that you’ll consider us to be your guides on this journey and help us to create long lasting ripples that will carry into the future generations.

Stay tuned for more details!

Namaste with a grateful heart,

Mary Beth & Shona

Help us plant more “seeds”

We are so happy, humble and our hearts are full after graduating this group of ‘Teens & Schools’ yoga trainees. We spent the last 3 days (27 hours) immersing in the art & techniques of bringing yoga & mindfulness to 2 stressed out populations.

We are excited for these ladies!!!! This was such a powerful wise group of educators, mental health practitioners, occupational therapists and passionate yoga educators.

Each one of them is planting seeds one child at a time.

If you’ve been wanting to take one of the Twist Kids Yoga trainings, we are planning the 2020 schedule.

Spreading kindness to 21 classrooms

I am so excited to share a community service project with the Public Montessori Elementary school that I teach at 3 days per week. The principal has given me the ok to donate a glass ‘glitter jar’ aka ‘mind jar’ with 21 classrooms. The jar will be added to their peace corner and can be used as a mindfulness tool to help kids settle their minds. I am so incredibly grateful to share yoga & mindfulness at a Public Montessori Elementary School. My heart is full.
