Shari Vilchez-Blatt opened Karma Kids Yoga with only one thing in mind...children.
While teaching 18 kids classes every week, she quickly learned a lot from the kids and realized that there was a need for more. More ideas, more poses, more balance, more games, more challenges, more fun. It was then that she began to brainstorm to develop and create new everything to keep kids engaged. By moving her body into different shapes and figures that her imagination led to, Shari was able to create more yoga fun in her classes. And the kids love it! She continuously develops more poses, games and activities, thereby continuously growing the course curriculum and content.
Shari has trained over a thousand adults around the world to teach yoga to children. Most have started their own children's yoga programs.
Karma Kids Yoga works directly with Reach Grenada to provide quality training for teachers, caregivers, social workers, and other caring adults to be able to provide yoga to the children in Grenada. We provide the yoga component to the multi-dimensional, evidence-based approach so that the children of Grenada have every opportunity to be healthy in mind, soul and body.
