READY, SET, HAPPY!
Ready, Set, Happy! provides children (ages 3-7) with fun opportunities to develop self-awareness, compassion, and a sense of interconnectedness with the planet and all living beings. Games, stories, discussion, meditation, and yoga cultivate qualities such as kindness, generosity, and compassion, all of which launch joyful and constructive ways of thinking, being, and relating to the world around us. Ready, Set, Happy! coordinates with the adults’ program, Living a Happy Life, so that families can share, explore, and grow these positive qualities at home and in daily life. Together we all contribute to a better world!

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
Amanda started practicing yoga in 2001, but became serious about her practice after she had her daughter in 2011. She completed her children’s yoga certification with Shari Vilchez-Blatt at Karma Kids Yoga and found the opportunity to share this practice with young minds to be incredibly rewarding, not to mention fun. She loves to bring yoga and mindfulness into the classroom at schools, and her studio classes are always playful and fun. www.amandasidranyoga.com
Shenaaz Jetha was introduced to yoga in college with Shiva Rea and has continued to return to the practice as a source of focus, calm, inner and outer strength. A chance encounter to train with Bija Kids opened the door to teaching children yoga, and a lifelong love of kids and yoga found a home. Wanting to expand her teaching, Shenaaz did her 200-hour adult yoga teacher training at OM Yoga with Cyndi Lee.
She ventured out in 2013 to pave her own yogic path, creating the kids and family yoga company, Little Feet Wise Heart yoga. Watching children connect with their breath, learn about the strength in their bodies and understand the power of stillness continues to excite and awaken her practice every day.
Shenaaz was inspired to find new ways for families of multiple generations to enjoy the practice of yoga together, on and off the mat. She completed meditation teacher training at The Interdependence Project with Ethan Nichtern and Kate Johnson, the four-year program in Sustainable Happiness with Miles Neale/ Nalanda Institute, along with Teaching Mindfulness to Kids with Heidi Marben.
She’s thankful to the many teachers, students and families that have inspired her.
