Jyoti Bajaj Director, TheYogaKids Thank you for visiting TheYogaKids website. My name is Jyoti Bajaj, and I am the program’s founder. I’m glad to have you here.
I was personally trained and certified by Shakta herself, and I am honored and thrilled to share this wonderful program today. We work with Greater Toronto-area schools and the community at large to provide fun, enriching experiences through school resource programs, private classes and even birthday parties.
I started TheYogaKids after simple one-on-one yoga practice with my son inspired me to teach other children as well. After training with Shakta Kaur Khalsa in 2009 and earning my 200-hour certification in yoga instruction, I began working with libraries and community centers in and around Toronto to offer yoga instruction for children. Our program has since expanded to include public, private and Montessori schools as well; my days of practicing daily meditation and yoga with my father when I was a child in India have come full-circle, and I am pleased to give back and provide guidance to children in my community today.
It’s been a tremendous pleasure to work with children in a manner that enriches them and helps them grow in such a positive and balanced way. In fact, the program has become so valuable to the schools in which it’s offered, I’ve continued working in many of the same schools in which I began offering instruction several years ago. It’s a joy to hear happy feedback from children, teachers and parents alike.
