My name is Yelena. I am passionate, enthusiastic, conscientious and well-qualified children’s yoga teacher and I believe there are many ways in which yoga classes can benefit your kids in their learning experience at school and life in general.
I have been practicing yoga since 2000, so when in autumn 2013 my daughter Nika was born, it was only natural to carry on doing it with her, to teach her and practice together.
I got really inspired observing her striking an asana, spontaneously and naturally. I didn’t want to miss this magic opportunity, I had every intention to cease the moment and support Nika on this journey. Our home practice was born out of this intention and we were sharing one mat since my daughter was slightly over a year.
As months went by I immersed myself in extensive reading on this subject and collected an incredibly compelling, credible and convincing material on kids’ yoga and mindfulness. I decided to formalize my teaching experience by taking up Calm For Kids Children’s Yoga Training program accredited by Yoga Alliance (UK) as I wanted a structure to my knowledge, a more insightful view of this new to me industry and a trustworthy certificate by an reputable and recognised yoga teaching establishment. And it’s been an exciting journey for me ever since full of fun, joy and happiness.
I invite you to join our Yogiki Yoga Kids Classes to share the world of yoga and beyond together.
