Kids Yoga


This class is taught by:

Melissa Mayo

After graduating college and beginning to work as an HR professional in the corporate world, I first tried yoga as a way to get in shape after spending countless hours sitting at a desk and staring at a computer. For the first year of having a daily yoga practice, I’ll admit that the physically challenging asanas, or poses, are what kept me enthralled. I would push myself to be able to do all of the cool arm balances and inversions...I didn’t meditate, or study and practice any of the other, non-physical limbs of yoga.

After some time, I began to find more fulfillment in my yoga practice than in my corporate job. I began to broaden my practice, no longer just focusing on the poses, but instead doing my best to incorporate yogic concepts into my daily life, and to read and study history and philosophy of yoga. I was hooked.

In August 2017, I finally acted on a decision I had been contemplating for up to a year, and quit my corporate job, so that I could become certified to teach yoga. A few months afterwards, I received my 200 hour certification from Namah Shivaya, a wonderful school and studio that does an excellent job of teaching and practicing each limb of yoga. I am currently continuing my studies of yoga, by working towards my 500 hour certification. I teach all-levels classes, as well as gentle classes. In my classes, I do my best to encourage mindfulness and body

Robin Korevaar

Robin currently teaches all levels Vinyasa Flow and gentle yoga in the Hatha tradition at Namah Shivaya studio and has a small private studio of adult students ages 25-60 years. She enjoys working with students of all ages, and teaches yoga for youth ages 3-17 at Namah Shivaya Studio, Dallas Academy for Music & Performing Arts (DAMPA), and Northpark Mall. Robin’s brings to the studio her rich experience as an endurance athlete, social worker, and student of the Alexander Technique (a practice used by many performers and athletes to maximize efficiency and effectiveness in movement). Her wellness class for emerging performers at DAMPA makes use of her full range of skills.

Connection with breath and flow are central to her instruction style, as is efficient use of one’s musculoskeletal system: Robin delights in helping yoga students find greater line, ease, and balance in their practice. Her classes offer creative sequences that encourage freedom, exploration, flexibility, and strength in mind, body, and spirit.

Ms. Korevaar completed her RYT 200 training at Namah Shivaya studio in Dallas (October 2017) and her RCYT through Yogees Yoga for Kids (May 2018). She is registered with the Yoga Alliance (with CPR certification and liability insurance), and is available for group, private, and semi-private lessons.

Children learn through play, but unfortunately many are already feeling the effects of a busy, stressed out society. Using songs, stories, and rhymes to maintain interest, this class will incorporate poses for strength, flexibility, balance, and overall health. We will also work on deep breathing, focused attention, cooperation, and relaxation. Most importantly, the kids get to have fun and shine like the stars they are!
