Parents and kids playfully explore yoga postures and breathing awareness through rhymes, songs, games, partnering, and stories!

Kid focused yoga improves body awareness and control, promotes self esteem and self expression, increases listening skills, improves impulse control, and fosters peace and well-being. Practicing yoga together fosters healthy relationships and plays a significant role in enjoying physical activity.

Families should dress comfortably for movement. Each person should have their own mat. Loaner mats are available.

Class Facilitators

Hello all! My name is Maria Samuels, I also go by Maria Monchel. I am the mother of a very active 6 year old boy. I have been teaching yoga for approximately 1 and 1/2 years, as Twisted Pretzel Yoga. I have taught quite a few different classes including Mommy and Me yoga, Children's Yoga, and also Adults's Yoga. I have taught at the Wichita Recreation Center and also a few demonstration lessons. I have a certification from the Complementary Therapist Accredited Association where I completed my training as a professional accredited yoga instructor. I trained briefly with Gaia Flow Yoga in Plano, Texas before relocating to Wichita.

In my spare time I enjoy community development and serving the less fortunate. I have a passion for yoga therapy and aromatherapy, and create products to assist with emotional support and previous trauma. I look forward to sharing yoga at Sunshine Family Yoga, building great relationships with each and every family.

Hello! My name is Sheryl Haynes.  I created Sunshine Family Yoga to bring families together, and the love of yoga in hearts and homes.  I facilitate prenatal and the 4 weeks to 4 years family yoga classes. I am a trained yoga instructor with Next Generation Yoga for 2-7 years, and Sunshine Family Yoga is a Next Generation Yoga affiliated yoga studio. I am grateful for Maria sharing yoga at Sunshine Family Yoga.  Maria is the primary Little Lotus Kids Yoga facilitator.  I will sub as needed.

This class is so much fun!  My 4 year old and I take home the things we learn in class and get to share those moments together throughout the week.  Sheryl is so patient and loving with the kids.  The class has helped my son with impulse control, motor skills, social skills as well as boost his self confidence!
