about mini yogis®

shanaHi, I’m Shana Meyerson, Founder of mini yogis yoga for kids. I just wanted to take a moment to tell you what mini yogis means to me.

When I was growing up, every aspect of my life was a competition. School, sports, popularity, you name it. Maybe it taught me about being tough and excelling in the world, but it also made me approach life in a competitive and judgmental way. A way that made me stressed out and anxious.

I always knew that inner peace existed out there somewhere, but it wasn’t in here. It was only after I found yoga that I found myself and learned to be one with my true inner nature.

When I look at kids today, I see an incredible amount of potential and so many opportunities for them to exercise it. But I also see a lot of unnecessary sadness, stress, and apprehension. I believe that yoga holds the magic that will allow all of today’s kids to be healthy in mind, body, and spirit, and to believe in themselves above all else.

"I had such a wonderful time [at your teacher training] and it was so inspiring. I've read other books and material on teaching kids, but nothing has particularly grabbed me, but I really can see how your style will work...I feel very priveleged to have met you and to have learned from you."
