Welcome to Butterfly Kids Yoga!TM My name is Allison Picciano ("Miss Ali" for the kids) and I'm so glad you are interested in children's yoga. As a mom of three young and active children, I look for engaging, fun, and dynamic activities where my children can laugh and smile, burn some energy, and put simply – “just have fun and be a kid”. But, equally important, I also look for activities that reinforce healthy living, that allow my children to be creative & use their imaginations, and for activities to help bring peacefulness and a sense of calm to them. I try to bring balance to my children’s lives through school activities, music, sports, friends, healthy choices and more. Yet, as I'm sure many of you can relate, finding this balance can be very challenging.
But, what if there was an activity that blends healthy living, laughing and smiling, creativity and imagination, peacefulness & mindfulness, along with exercise and “burning some energy”? What if there was an activity that could compliment my children’s sports activities, help them focus better in school, and give them an outlet for fun? What if there was an activity that I could also enjoy with my children?
If there was, I would sign up.
But, there is – it is children’s yoga.
I founded Butterfly Kids YogaTM with a goal of helping to create that balanced activity -- an activity where children can exercise, have fun, but also experience creativity, imagination, and mindfulness. An activity that compliments my children’s sporting activities, that helps them in school, and that gives them an outlet to have fun while also demonstrating the importance of healthy living. And finally, an activity that I can also enjoy with my children.
I am very excited to turn this vision into a reality with Butterfly Kids YogaTM.
Children's yoga should be fun, energizing, and at times even silly. Lots of laughs and giggles are at the core of all of my classes. I combine this playfulness with calm, mindful moments, and my goal is for your child to walk away from each class stronger and with a sense of peacefulness. As a trained and certified children's yoga instructor through the international “Kidding Around Yoga” program, I am here to create an environment where every little yogi can find their own balance.
I am excited to positively impact your children, and to give them the tools to breathe, smile, and fly!
I look forward to seeing your little yogi (and you) in a class soon!
Namaste, "Miss Ali"
