Kids Yoga Rocks was created by Jaclyn Rock, a former elementary school teacher, and Yoga enthusiast. Due to her passion for yoga and love of children, she decided to pursue kids yoga. Her goal is to help each child reach their greatest potential. Throughout the years of working with children, it is clear to see how one can develop body awareness, manage stress (through breathing), build concentration, and most importantly feel confident and positive as individuals through yoga. Children will be able to develop these attributes through creative activities, stories, yoga poses, and games.
