Kids Yoga

"Capturing the Beats Between the Noise"


“Before spending a few hours with BBKY, I had not given much thought to yoga + kids at all. In fact, I’d say they didn’t exist in the same brain space for me. Now, I can’t separate them. Yoga is inherently a child-friendly activity and the kids love it! Yoga doesn’t have to be an inaccessible Eastern practice — for these BBKY kids it’s about learning to love themselves and their bodies, gaining confidence, and being a little silly.”

Kylie Larson, you couldn’t have said it better! Just as we love watching kiddos find the magic of yoga, it is equally as fulfilling to see adults understand the power of what we are doing on our mats. As our yoga journey unfolds, we are grateful for all the cheerleaders along the way. One such supporter is the insanely talented Kylie Larson of Kylie Larson Photography. Her recent path of becoming a small business owner has strangely paralleled ours, and we are excited to be sharing the road. We admire her perseverance, leap of faith, and passion for pursuing her dreams. There was a strong pull in both our directions to have her photograph some yoga sessions. We are thrilled that she jumped at the invitation! Kylie truly does have an eye for “capturing the beats between the noise.” Joy simply pervades her images. Her shots from summer camp help to tell the story of our beginning. Through these images, our Busy Buddhas exude confidence and calm, strength and serenity. How lucky we were to have Ms. Kylie travel all the way to Pick. Garden Patch Farms to capture the beauty of family yoga. Perhaps this concept seems foreign to some, but it is an innately human experience. The family bond brightens with each movement and allows for true connection. In a world inundated with distraction from every angle it’s precisely what we need; to reconnect with the ones we love. Kylie’s farm photos encapsulated the allure of this experience. We are forever grateful and humbled by your work. Thank you for featuring our sweet ones on your blog!

Namaste,

Erin and Meg

Welcome to Buddha Belly Kids Yoga! We are thrilled you have become part of our yoga journey. Buddha Belly Kids Yoga was born only a few short months ago after being completely enamored by our training experience through Rainbow Kids Yoga (RKY). Two years ago, the universe brought us to Zen Yoga Garage  (ZYG) to begin our yoga practice. This community empowered and rejuvenated us in ways we never thought possible! Our physical and mental strength, confidence, and mind/body awareness simply skyrocketed. At Buddha Belly, we believe that there is no such thing as coincidence. Just about the time our own yoga practice began to take shape, we felt a strong desire to see how we could incorporate yoga with our passion for children and education. Within days of this discussion, a flyer was posted at ZYG for the Rainbow Kids Yoga teacher training. In a matter of minutes, we signed up and embarked on this new journey with open hearts. As educators, we truly believe we have something unique to offer! In a world saturated with yoga for kids and adults, we are ecstatic to find our niche and bring a breathe of fresh air.

Namaste,

Meg and Erin
