Overview

Kids, Parents, Soon-to-be Parents and Educators

Children benefit from yoga and mindfulness as a way to experience the richness of their own inner world without the distractions of modern day life. Through postures, kids learn balance, regulation, confidence, body awareness and their mental, emotional and physical health improves. Parents and educators are given the sacred task of "holding space" for children to grow. They blossom when we listen carefully, allow their feelings to unfold and stay present with them through all of it.


  • Summer Yoga and Mindfulness Camps,

  • Yoga Classes for parents with young children

  • Family Yoga and Mindfulness Workshops and series

  • Yoga for Pregnancy and Postpartum

  • Kids Yoga Teacher Training

A Yoga-Inspired Preschool

Full preschool curriculum, all with the grounding, mindful, holistic, fun and movement-filled approach of yoga. We focus on social and emotional skills with a brave and honest look at ourselves and creative problem solving at the core. Play-based, child-centered, small class size and organic foods. For kids ages 3 - 5.

Classes and workshops in yoga, meditation and ayurveda

Peaceful Heart's classes and workshops invite us to send down our roots and find our most authentic expression. Yoga classes are on the gentle side and offer variations in each pose to allow for the most beneficial practice. The main influence is that of Kripalu Yoga: inviting authenticity, compassion, and the discovery of your yoga practice in all aspects of life - on the mat, at work and school, in the trenches of parenthood and beyond.

More about me and Peaceful Heart

What's in a name? I chose these words from our New Culture as it is blossoming. A Peaceful Heart is a heart that is listened to and accepted just as it is; with presence, stillness, respect and love. Our own hearts and the hearts of our children. It is heard in its present state, whether it looks pretty or not - the turmoil, the rumblings, the contradictions, the tantrums. When we choose to feel and be with all that we are - use all the information our hearts are giving us from a place of honesty - that's when we can find a deep peace in every moment. And from this place of stillness and understanding is where we grow and soar.
