About Yoga Friends
For young minds and bodies
I bring mind, body, and breath connection to toddlers and kids in the Philadelphia area. My classes are fun and relaxed – they do not look like a typical adult class! You may see similar poses, but instead of Warrior II we are surfing, and instead of resting in savasana motionless at the end, there are yoga burritos and beanie babies and singing.
Every child is kind and good – it is our jobs as grown ups to help them maintain open hearts and learn to communicate in a peaceful way as they grow.
Courtney D’Avella, Certified Children’s Yoga Teacher
I completed my Yoga for Children Teacher Training in December, 2014 under the instruction of Gail Silver, J.D E-RYT, Maureen Heil, E-RYT and Anatomy Instructor, Heather Marie Miller. This training has prepared me to guide children from Pre-K through 5th Grade to a place of relaxation through asanas (poses), magical meditations, and fun yoga related songs. My regular yoga and meditation practice has provided me strength, perspective, and the ability to better manage my thoughts and emotions, and I am so excited to pass on these benefits to your children!
I live in Glenside with my husband and two small children – you may even meet them in class!
