Dee Marie, MA, CYT, has been a yoga therapist since 1983. She is a certified adult yoga teacher, prenatal yoga teacher & children’s yoga teacher. In 2004, Dee Marie began teaching classical yoga techniques in the school systems. Four years were dedicated to researching the effects that CALMING KIDS: Creating a Non-Violent World had on school age children. The results proved to decrease violence and bullying up to 93% and increase concentration levels up to 87%. Playful Yoga is a result of this work.
After 5 years of using the wonderful sounds from White Swan Music to accompany the CALMING KIDS programs, Playful Yoga was compiled to put all the songs in one place for the ease of youth professionals to use and for children of all ages to listen to -ENJOY!
