Yoga + Mindfulness Classes for Children, Teens + Families

We offer classes for all ages from 6 weeks through teens as well as workshops, special events, summer camp programs and birthday parties.

Regularly scheduled classes run in 6-week sessions because this gives kids time to learn to manage anxiety, grow emotionally, build self-esteem, and connect with each other.

At Just Bee Yoga + Well-being we introduce youth of all ages to the benefits and joys of yoga, breath-work and mindfulness.

There are wonderful physical benefits of yoga including improved strength, balance, coordination, body awareness and flexibility.

We also strongly believe in the emotional benefits of yoga, mindfulness & breath-work.

These are lifelong tools that can be used on – and off – the mat for overall health and well-being.

“If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.”-Dalai Lama

Welcome!

I’m so glad you are here!

Kay Epple kids yoga teacher

Hello! I’m Kay Epple and as a mother and grandparent I’m excited to share yoga and mindfulness with children everywhere.

I was first drawn to yoga for the physical practice, but I soon learned that asana was just a small part of yoga. As a busy mother of four it quickly became a passion that brought me peace like nothing else ever had.

My first teacher training was taken with the intent of deepening my own practice, but I soon realized it was something I needed to share. After obtaining my RYT 200 I realized the incredible benefits of yoga + mindfulness for all ages. I followed up with my RCYT to specialize in yoga for children, teens and families. I wished I had this training and information when my children were young, but with eleven grandchildren and counting a mission was born!

My trainings include, but are not limited to  Well Bean Kids Yoga, Rainbow Kids Yoga, Karma Kids Baby Yoga & Developmental Movement, Cosmic KidsYogi Beans Tween Immersion, Yoga Ed Trauma Informed Yoga, and  Certified YOGABODY® Breathing Coach,

I am passionate about providing children and families with tools for living healthy, happy lives.

Mom, dad, grandparent or caregiver welcome. This class is for walkers through age 4 and is 45 minutes long.
