I took the Kids Yoga Teacher Training to improve my skills as a preschool teacher and help incorporate yoga into my classroom. Leslie was insightful, clear, patient and spot-on in her assessment of how to motivate and share yoga with children of various ages. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about how to engage children, and has a very strong understanding of yoga poses and philosophy. She was able, in a hands-on way, to help us learn how to structure and teach a kids yoga class. The ideas and games that Leslie taught us, and especially the manual she provided, will be invaluable resources as I develop my teaching. I am very glad to have participated in this training.

This training was so much fun! I learned so much and feel I’m going home and will be a better parent, a better Sunday school teacher at my church, a better facilitator for kids activities professionally and overall just a better person

Leslie gives a one of a kind children's teaching experience that can be used not only toward yoga classes but within parenting and the classroom as well. I am inspired to teach the next generation of yogis because of her passion.

The Yoga Playgrounds training was super! Leslie did a great job of making it very hands on and applied. I feel like I have a solid toolkit for teaching yoga to children.

Elizabeth Autio

The Yoga Playgrounds training was absolutely wonderful! It was a blast to experience all of the activities, and Leslie’s energy and enthusiasm are contagious. After taking this training I feel ready to walk into a classroom and start teaching.
