I believe in fort building, tree climbing, pillow fighting, monster cookies, and playing games outside with neighborhood pals until the street lights come on.
I delighted in learning and growing with my students as a primary classroom and PE teacher for 16 years in the elementary school system. I teach full time in the studio now, as well as teach many YogaButtons classes in local schools, daycares and preschools. I have been teaching kids yoga for 20 years and developed our kids yoga programming based on the BC elementary school physical education learning outcomes and my experience working with children for 22 years.
I wanted to create a happy community space to bring children and families together through yoga. I created YogaButtons Studio in 2012 for my then 2 year old son Jack and his buddies, and for all the adorable little buttons out there. A studio for kids; young and old, big and small; to discover how good it feels to move their bodies, breathe and ignite their imaginations. My dream is to share my love of children and yoga with my community. Jack is now 10 years old and with my partner Michael, we are now a soon to be a blended family of 6, with his 2 sons, as well as a baby daughter expected in Spring 2020.
The name YogaButtons comes from my father. As a little girl, my dad nicknamed me "Buttoni" – his way of saying: Little Button. The studio is for all the little and big Buttonis (adults too!) out there. Let's open our bodies, minds and hearts together through playful yoga.
Be prepared for fun and creativity at YogaButtons Studio. You never know what may magically appear in our classes... Poof! Behold: bubbles, ribbon dancing, parachute games, face painting, puppet play, drumming, crafts, games, storybooks, dancing, singing and more.
I am excited to meet you soon!
