Yama Kids Yoga reviews and press Berkeley California


  • "We love Yama Kids Yoga! I take my 2 year old most Mondays and he looks forward to it every week. Beth does such a great job making all the kids feel comfortable and introducing yoga to the little ones. My son loves showing off his yoga poses at home! The classes are the perfect combination of structure and flexibility for an active toddler who can only stay focused for so long. I also appreciate that Yama Kids Yoga has coordinated with the Dailey Method next door so that I can work out while my son goes to yoga. He's perfectly happy to be there without me (although I often join him since it's so much fun) and Beth has some magic that allows her to manage a handful of toddlers without the whole room turning into chaos. Can't recommend it enough"   ~  Myrrah S. 

  • "Yama Kids Yoga is extraordinary - in a league of its own. While I am sure Beth is as outstanding with little kids over 4 as she is with toddlers, my experience is with toddlers. She understands 2.5 year olds and has a seemingly endless bag of age appropriate activities which bring yoga positions into the world the toddler knows - familiar songs, colors, playful and yet moving along the spectrum so that as they age, they will be ready for more disciplined yoga. In some ways it was a stretch - he told his mother it was hard. But he loved it and wants to go back." ~ Joan D. 

  • Beth is incredible. No one just so naturally loves kids and gets them engaged to have a great time. Love the location and especially the secret parent loft. Do it!  ~ Preet A.

  • Beth Houghton, has taught yoga at our preschool for eight years. She is creative and imaginative, introducing all the yoga basics in the most fun and magical ways. She not only manages a mixed age group of 2 years olds to 5 years olds, but always fully engages them! The kids move from sun salutations to savasana & the final namaste, and love everything in between as well. She brings in stories, games and even her own whimsical songs.She helps them master new poses, practice mindfullness and silliness to become the youngest yogis." Carolyn, Owner, Director and Teacher at Bloomers Preschool

  • "My favorite part of the class is savasana when Beth tells us stories, like about the ocean and trees. You have to close your eyes and imagine it in your head, and I feel happy." Hannah, Age 7

  • "Beth is the most fun, engaging yoga teacher I know. I wish I could take her classes! It's so amazing to see my 2 and 5 year old daughters learning new poses such as downward dog, singing and laughing, and resting peacefully in savasana. I am grateful to the Yama Kids Yoga curriculum for setting my kids up for a lifetime of honoring the deep the connection between the mind, the heart and the body. You're the best! " Marianne J. , Oakland Mom

  • "My child came home every week and taught us the new words and poses that she learned. She looks forward to the class every week." Mom of student, age 5

  • "My daughter loved this yoga class, especially the guided meditations." Mom of student, age 7

  • "Beth makes yoga fun, engaging and something that my 5 year old daughter looks forward to every week. I highly recommend Beth to get your children moving and in tune with their bodies!" Tiffany F., Oakland Mom
