Hi, I’m Irina Kazakevic.
I’m an elementary school teacher, yoga teacher and a well-being educator.
I began teaching yoga to children behind the closed doors of my classroom more than 15 years ago. At that time, when I went to my principal and asked to buy a yoga manual for our school, he kindly agreed, but warned me that he doesn’t see yoga being a part of the school system in the near future. Fortunately, he was wrong, and within two years of that conversation, I was teaching official yoga classes in my school.
My search for the optimal way to teach children’s yoga began. I researched numerous programs, became certified in kids yoga and was constantly on the look out for new and progressive research in children's yoga.
After teaching hundreds of children's yoga classes, I developed the course Yoga Can Help ™ on how to introduce yoga to children to grab their attention and demonstrate how fun and beneficial yoga is. My passion continues to be studying methods and techniques that allow me to know myself better and give me the tools for self-realization and growth.
My “feel good,” “this is me in my zone” type of work is teaching these practices and helping my students of all ages to gain skills and confidence to make changes to improve and evolve.
I share my passion of teaching yoga to children by offering professional development and coaching in my school board, at conferences, in workshops and through the children's yoga teacher certification training.
I founded Yoga Break for Children™ live and online programs to train, support and empower yoga teachers, educators and parents in their work of bringing the benefits of yoga to children.
