Presentations and Workshops for Adults
Kathy’s presentations and workshops at Professional Conferences and Professional Development Days are always engaging, inspiring and fun!
Educators, parents and caregivers all come away with tools and treasures to help make the introduction of yoga to kids both profound and playful.

School Visits
School visits include audience participation as we play with words, stretch the body and tickle the mind!

Please note: All presentations are ‘hands-on’. Participants need space to move and are encouraged to experiment with yoga poses, to play with sound and enjoy the rhythm of riddles and rhymes.

Presentations for young children – (Preschool to K) are 30 minutes

Presentations for older children – (Primary Grades) are 45 -60 minutes

Workshops for teachers/childcare providers are approximately 2 hours.

    Kathy embodies the principles of yoga in her personal life, in her personal yoga practice and in her yoga teaching. She is light and bright, always encouraging her students to relax, to find balance and to let go of the demands we place on ourselves and which daily life places upon us.

    Kathy Beliveau is a remarkable yoga teacher and person. I highly recommend her. If I had to choose one word to describe Kathy’s teaching it would be: transformational. She has the ability to inspire and change everyone who meets her.

    Kathy’s commitment to her students is immense. She is an excellent role model on living the yogi life and successfully shows others- as opposed to tell – how to live. She has a fantastic ability to connect with others and create a community of friends. Her love of people and life shines through her smile, words and actions. Support, inclusion and joy are some of the words that run synonymous with Kathy and her instructive abilities.
