Message from the Founders

A Message from the NKYC Founders:

Across the country, leaders are doing incredible work bringing the health benefits of yoga, mindfulness, and meditation into our communities. Kids and teens are learning how to de-stress, focus their minds, and develop greater self-awareness. Educators, mental health professionals, parents, and yoga teachers are seeing the benefits of social emotional learning, physical movement, and wellness programs taught at all ages. The National Kids Yoga Conference unifies this work through an inspiring, collaborative, professional conference, which will propel our movement forward and deepen our impact.

As yoga teachers, moms, and community leaders we feel passionate about creating a conference so this remarkable community can come together in a professional learning environment. We have watched the practice of yoga transform our own lives, our families, and the students we serve. Inspired by transformation and the need to bring together like-minded teachers, leaders, and visionaries in the kids yoga world for collaboration and connection, the National Kids Yoga Conference was born.

The National Kids Yoga Conference was founded to create a space where inspired action, collective connection, and meaningful conversations towards implementing positive change in our communities and schools can happen in a professional learning forum. We are especially grateful to our sponsors, hosts, presenters, and the attendees that energize this beautiful community and continue to make this conference an annual event.

With love and gratitude,
