Many parents and caregivers report that their child’s transition into preschool is eased by their participation in Toddler Yoga classes and Toddler Yoga Camps (summer, school holidays) where they learn fun yoga poses and the beginnings of classroom skills such as: following verbal cues, being in a group, taking turns, getting to know a caring teacher, putting their things away, etc.

Amy’s message - My goal as a teacher is to create an atmosphere that fosters a sense of peace, acceptance and fun. We play with the elements of yoga - breath, poses, sound, relaxation. Kids yoga is all about discovery and creativity in a group setting. We experiment with new sounds and moves all the time, and we play in all planes of gravity.

Parent FAQs
- this is drop-off class NOT mommy and me
- the age range is 20 months to 5 years. The lower age limit (20 months) isn’t flexible but upper range is flexible as long as your child knows smaller kids will be there and it will still be fun then they are welcome.
- Kids don’t need to be completely potty trained to attend. Amy can change them if needed.
- Loaner mats available or kids can bring their own.
- Amy is fully certified to teach kids and completed all background checks.

Amy’s Bio:
Amy Pancake (M.A., e-ryt, cryt) learned to work with preschool age children by working with the director of La Petite Ecole French immersion preschool in Austin. Since then she has expanded her classes to teach kids of all ages. Her experience includes 13 years of yoga teaching, kinesiology studies at U.T. Austin, ongoing study of human movement (including developmental movement with Emilie Conrad of Continuum Movement) and over 3,500 hours of kids yoga classes. Classes are fun, engaging, incorporate movement in all planes of gravity, activities to grow attention span, social time and guidance (when needed) in social interactions. She speaks fluent Spanish and French. Many of her classes are bilingual and we often learn sweet songs and how to count in Spanish and French. At the heart of her teaching is the commitment to connect in a heartfelt way with each student so they feel safe and free to express themselves in class.
