Dani, I am so lucky to have been under your guidance during such a difficult time with my health and family and, at a time where I felt there was very little opportunity for me to be successful and effective in my work. I admire your work and value greatly the time, energy and effort that you have contributed to my world. Your teaching will stay with me.
Thankyou so very much.
Love, Kelly. Xx

"Dani Reidy is the
founder of Angel Yoga 4 Kids. She has been teaching yoga to children 14
years. In that time there is very little she hasn't encountered in her
classes. Her calming energy is a true inspiration. Heading towards
retirement now though, Dani teaches very few children's yoga classes today.
Instead she has turned her energy towards raising a new generation of yoga
teachers, to whom she offers endless support and mentoring. Each teacher
runs their own independent business, but we are offered the opportunity to
join the Angel Yoga 4 Kids network of teachers. As a network we work
together to share ideas and support each other, continually updating our
skills to deliver the best quality Children's Yoga Classes. It is with
great pride that I identify as an Angel Yoga 4 Kids Facilitator."

Just a quick note, to thank you so much, for a great day on Sunday.
I thoroughly enjoyed the training, and have already had a chance to have some fun with my little girl.
Yesterday before her daytime nap, I also played one of your yoga songs and did some rainbows over our bodies at the end. I had to go and check on her a few time because I have never seen her rest so peacefully. She did not move for 2 hours!
I look forward to trying out the homework meditation and affirmations I have started preparing on her tonight. It is nice to have a little test subject.
With kindest regards,
Thanks for an inspiring workshop last Sunday. I really enjoyed the day. I even enjoyed the assignments:-) Thanks so much. Also I've had another look on your web site for the level 2 and 3 workshops.But most keen on the teenager workshop. Wish you had them more frequent! Thanks again.
I would like to thank you again for a brilliant Sunday. I had so much fun and was just buzzing when I left there, thinking about all the amazing things I could do with the kids. I really feel there could be a huge overlap between yoga for kids and some of the activities we do with them from a therapy point of view to work on gross motor skills, sensory processing, self soothing, increasing tone and many other areas. So thank you for introducing me to another vehicle I can use to work with the kids.
I hope you have a great week and I look forward to connecting again soon.
Thank you again for re-lighting my spark and passion to work with children.
You have really brought this part of me to the surface. Thank you.
And thank you for giving me the opportunity to teach and learn. I can't
believe how much I have changed in such a short time - and I know there
is more to come!
Have a good weekend and I'll see you Tuesday.

I had a great time on Saturday.
The day was very informative and for me it really clarified and cemented the benefits of yoga for today's kids. Personally I know its benefits, but I probably hadn't thought too deeply about what life is like for school kids these days.
I enjoyed the role playing in the classes and I thought that was a really good teaching device. It made me realise how out of touch I am with school age kids - I had absolutely no idea what they would be acting like!
I really enjoyed it.
Alison Rodd 14.12.09
It was wonderful! Really fun. I was probably laughing too much and enjoying acting like a kid again, but I also learnt a lot! I thought the day was structured really well. You have fantastic resources.
Overall it was a 10 outa 10 day. After spending the day with you I can really see and appreciate how teaching yoga to kids can keep you young. I loved it.
Thankyou so much Dani!
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity to do the two night workshop with you. I would love to do level two also
