Yoga for Preschoolers-ages 3-5


This class is taught by:

Jarhae Zessin

Jarhae has been practicing yoga since 2012. In 2014 when Jarhae moved to Vail she was searching for a place to feel a sense of community and a good friend invited her to a class at RPY. Jarhae instantly felt at home in the studio. As a classroom teacher Jarhae started to notice how much her students could benefit from yoga. In 2015 Jarhae took her first teacher training from Next Generation Yoga for 2-7 year olds and begin incorporating bits of yoga into her classroom. In 2016 Jarhae became certified from Next Generation Yoga to teach 8-13 year olds. Jarhae has since become certified to teach mindfulness to children through Mindful Schools. These certifications in addition to her background in Psychology provide a holistic approach to bring the Vail Valley’s youngest yogis to their mats in a playful, knowledge based practice. Jarhae is very excited to share her love of yoga and fun with families and children. Jarhae believes it’s not about teaching children how to do yoga it’s about teaching them how to hold on to their natural yogic state.

Tracey Clery

Tracey’s journey as a Next Generation Teacher and Trainer began years before her first “official” Kids Yoga class. Tracey found yoga in New York City in 2005. Tracey’s love of Yoga continued through her pregnancy with her son. It helped her balance the new life she was creating alongside her husband. Soon she landed at the doorstep of Prancing Peacock in Yardley, PA, where she completed her 200-hour Teacher Training. It was also here that she fell in love with Kids Yoga. Now a resident of the Vail Valley, Tracey shares her love of Yoga with children and families. She completed the Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training for 2-7 and 8-13 yr. olds in 2014 and 2016, respectively and is now an NGY Teacher Trainer. Additionally, Tracey serves as a mentor for NGY Teachers and is certified to teach mindfulness to children through Mindful Schools. She loves spending time surrounded by nature with her loving husband, son and two dogs, and when she isn’t on her mat or teaching Yoga to kids and families, you’re guaranteed to find her in the mountains skiing, hiking or biking.

Yoga comes to life in these fun and creative classes designed to stimulate a young child’s growing curiosity. Playful yoga poses, animated breathing exercises and imaginative relaxation techniques, teach 3 to 5 year olds about their budding bodies.

Sprinkled with music, crafts, picture books and age-appropriate props, we’ll spark the child’s inner yogini while enhancing language development, motor coordination and play skills. Classes are an equal balance between active & passive poses.
