Hi everyone! I'm Robyn Parets and I'm the founder of Pretzel Kids®. I'm also a marketing & branding expert, financial writer, and seasoned journalist. When I'm not creating new kids yoga games and curriculum material, I can be found teaching yoga or creating wellness and children's educational content for our Pretzel Kids community.
I began leading Pretzel Kids three-day certification courses more than 10 years ago under the umbrella of my former wellness center, Breathe Joy Yoga. This new online course is two years in the making and is exactly the same as our live course -- at a fraction of the cost!
Pretzel Kids® was founded as a way to offer a structured yoga play environment for children. In fact, our ground-breaking children's yoga curriculum was written by myself and two school teachers (also yoga instructors). It is designed to model effective classroom educational programs and make it easy for others to begin teaching kids yoga immediately.
The Pretzel Kids curriculum is chock-full of innovative and original games, breathing techniques, warm-ups, and other teaching techniques. Better yet, our curriculum, which includes our "8 Rules for Success" methodology, is truly one-of-a-kind and addresses a growing need to bring yoga to children around the globe. Indeed, Pretzel Kids is the key to creating effective yoga classes and activities for children ages 2.9-17.
I'm super excited that you're taking our course as I know Pretzel Kids will give you the building blocks to succeed immediately! Are you ready? The kids are waiting for you!
