Wiggly Toes Kids Yoga
Sullivan's Island, South Carolina
Connecting our MIND ~~~
Wiggly Toes Kids Yoga teaches children how to manage stress, improve focus, gain mind/body awareness and respect for others in a healthy and playful way. We catch our "monkey minds" and bring them down to our hearts center. 
With our BODY ~~
We do age appropriate sequences, adventures, games, and challenges. Doing the postures helps children with focus, flexibility, balance, and self esteem. We breathe in and we give love, we breathe out and we send love.

And We Play
We read stories and act out them out, we watch bubbles to see where they will go, we air walk to the park to swing, and  sometimes we bark, meow, hiss, or ROAR...but this is why it is yoga for kids.

ABOUT

Kristine Ratner

Kristine Ratner, RYT is a wife
and mother who first began
doing yoga in 2002 as a form
of balance to the interval training
she was doing at that time. Yoga stayed
with her throughout the years, and as
she grew older, she realized this
practice would be lifelong.  After
learning that yoga was being taught
​to children, she was immediately
drawn to teaching kids the gift of yoga.
She received her kids yoga certification
through Kids Yogaverse in 2014 and
her 200 hour yoga certification from
Paraiso Yoga in Sayulita, MX in 2016.

A graduate from Elon University with a Bachlors Degree in English, Kristine has found a love for teaching all ages of kids yoga in local preschools, schools, children's
organizations, and after school classes.
 
Wiggly Toes Kids Yoga teaches self love, creativity, mindful awareness, friendship, and the importance of our connection with the natural world through yoga poses, crafts, and mindfulness activities.
