AOA Kids' Yoga


This class is taught by:

Darlene Kelbach

Darlene aims to nourish and nurture in her yoga as well as her nutrition classes. She encourages students to slow down and become aware in her Gentle Yoga classes. She offers modifications with props to support injuries and healing. Her classes are great for beginners because she also focuses on alignment. Throughout her classes, Darlene enjoys sharing inspirational messages and affirming words.
 
Darlene also loves teaching yoga to children and has led Kids' Yoga and Family Yoga classes. These are fun and lighthearted classes to introduce the benefits of yoga early in life and generate bonds between family members that practice together. Darlene sings songs in these classes that she has written to help teach yoga. She has found that children learn quickly and easily when music is incorporated. Her album is entitled, “Children’s Yoga Songs for the Classroom” – use it at the studio, in the classroom or at home!
 
With yoga, Darlene blends teaching about healthy eating though plant-based nutrition and periodically hosts Taste & Digest Workshops. She received her Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies in June 2014 and has been a Certified Yoga Teacher since 2007. Overall, her desire is to teach and promote love, health and optimal well-being for each individual as well as the community and planet.

Jenifer Ezell

Jenifer was given the gift of yoga in 2011. She was searching for a way to deal with chronic pain, stress and anxiety. After coming to Harmony Studios, she quickly found the solution to the battle she had been fighting tirelessly for years. As her practice evolved she knew she wanted to help others the way her teachers had for her. In May of 2016, Jenifer traveled to Costa Rica to immerse herself in learning under the tutelage of international yogi Banyan Gallagher and received her 200-hour RYT from Warrior One.
 
"I want to create a welcoming environment where people feel free to explore the beautiful journey of yoga and self discovery in a caring, judgment free space."
Private kids' yoga group hosted by Harmony Studios at Andrews Osborne Academy. We are pleased to bring the practice of yoga to AOA for kids ages Pre-K to 2nd Grade. Your children will be introduced to the many benefits of yoga; helping them to cultivate a sense of inner peace and stillness. Your child will be guided through basic postures and sequences followed by a guided meditation. After school yoga is the perfect opportunity for your little one to express and balance their emotions in a comfortable setting, while also building a sense of community and connectedness in the classroom. Please do not register for this class if your child is not a student at AOA.
