Kids yoga instructors


Sarah Heindel Paprocki

“I’m a lifelong Webster resident and I teach kindergarten at Schlegel Road Elementary School. Most importantly, I am a mom of two active and creative boys.

Both as a teacher and a mother, I am passionate about developing the whole child which led me to receiving my yoga certification to teach children through yogees yoga 4 kids. My favorite saying is ‘A calm mind is a creative mind.’ I’ve seen this first hand at home, in my classroom, and in my summer art classes.

I love seeing how yoga and mindfulness instruction help children grow emotionally, physically, socially, and academically.”

RYT 200 • RCYT

Nicole, founder and owner of Hikyoga®, teaches children’s classes, children’s yoga camps, as well as some of our ‘flow’ classes throughout the week!

“Yoga heals physically, mentally, and emotionally. Being able to share that with others is extremely rewarding. I help my students feel comfortable in every pose. Syncing breath with movement as we flow from pose to pose I assure everyone is moving in a way that’s beneficial to them.”
