Let's work together to build villages of Connected Kids, families, and teachers!
Connected Kids Yoga (CKY) specializes in yoga and mindfulness programs for school aged children from 2yrs. thru high school. Our programs are designed to meet the needs of schools and yoga studios looking to enhance their curriculum by offering children's yoga and mindfulness classes. We also offer adult yoga and mindfulness classes for parents, teachers and school staff.
Kids yoga is different from adult yoga. Kids yoga classes are full of energy, music and movement, and creativity. Classes are designed to introduce children to yoga in a fun and playful manner. Our classes provide kids with the opportunity to explore various components of yoga such as breath and body awareness, physical postures, balance and flexibility, mindfulness, visualizations and more, through various kid friendly props, stories, songs, games, and routines. An emphasis is made in creating a connected environment for children.
CKY's director's experience in early childhood education has equipped her with an unabridged understanding of a young child’s daily interactions, routines, development, capabilities, and interests. This understanding and experience has set the foundation for CKY. Connected Kids Yoga honors children’s creativity and innate abilities.
Our mission is to create a safe and playful environment in which to share with children the tools that yoga and mindfulness offer, guiding them towards a deeper sense of awareness, connection, and self-regulation.
Meet Our Director
Jennifer Baez, 200-RYT
A spiritual awakening in 2006 led Jennifer to discover yoga. Impressed by how “light” she felt walking out of the studio at the end of class compared to how “heavy” she felt when she walked in, she decided to delve deeper into the study of yoga. She realized that yoga is a lifestyle which brings balance and provides many tools to rise above the obstacles we are faced with in everyday life.
In Fall 2013, Jennifer received her 200RYT from So-Yoga in Miami, FL. In 2015 she completed a Kids Yoga Teacher Training Program at Kula Yoga Shala in Jupiter, FL and subsequently founded Connected Kids Yoga. In 2016 she completed Relax and Renew Level I Training with Judith-Hanson Lasater. Jennifer is trained in the Mindful Schools curriculum and is a registered yoga instructor with Yoga Alliance.
Jennifer weaves her passion for yoga with her experience in early childhood education into dynamic and enriching classes. She utilizes interactive storytelling, breath awareness, creative meditations and mindfulness techniques.
