All about KinKou Yoga

About Us

Hi there! My name is Kathy Gaudiosi

Making yoga and mindfulness accessible to all young people of all abilities is my passion, my mission and my work! I created KinKou Yoga in 2014 because I wanted to help children and teens grow up connected. Not to their smartphones, social media and screens, but to themselves, each other and the world around them. Through the powerful tools of yoga and mindfulness, KinKou Yoga empowers kids to find balance in their lives. I want to help young people to feel good about who they are.

I am a qualified yoga teacher with specific training and experience in teaching yoga and mindfulness to children and teens. Because this is my passion, I’m keen to inspire more yoga teachers to share the tools of yoga and mindfulness with children and teens. I share my experience with other instructors during a workshop-style session over at the Ray of Light Teacher Training.

Each of our teachers are trained, qualified and experienced in instructing children and teens in yoga and mindfulness. All representatives of KinKou Yoga are required to have a current WWCC (Working with Children Check). We are an Active Kids registered provider.
