Our PEACEFUL WARRIOR yoga classes are so much fun!

Kids build strength and flexibility while learning powerful tools to keep their cool through life’s ups and downs.  Every yoga class ties in with the Leadership Curriculum that we weave into our program.  No matter which classes your child attends, you can rest assured they are working on the same leadership and safety skills, from a unique angle with each teacher!

We highly recommend this class for:
  • Kids who have an active life and need to master methods for calming down, chilling out, and getting grounded.
  • Kids who tend to be shy and would benefit from a welcoming group activity without competition.
  • ANY of our martial arts students, because centering, stretching, and building strength – inside and out – is a huge part of what we do!

When getting started with, you can actually
try a free class in any and all of our movement programs!

In 2017, she completed the Asheville Yoga Center 300-hour Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training where she learned the therapeutic essentials of yoga to work with stress, injuries and illness. Amy studied children’s yoga with Jane Anne Tager at the Asheville Yoga Center and is a Kidding Around Yoga certified children’s yoga instructor.
