Our classes have the key ingredient: FUN! We incorporate stories, games, imagination and music into each class.
Jamie Gale Gepner is the owner of little om BIG OM and just loves seeing proud kids in tree pose who also know how to take deep breaths like pros. She loves working with small yogis, moving, learning, and having fun on the yoga mat while exploring the power of the mind and the breath. She holds her BA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is certified to teach yoga to children through Karma Kids Yoga, Rainbow Kids Yoga, Yoga Education Institute, and YogAutism. Jamie is also certified to teach yoga to adults through Yoga Education Institute. When she’s not connecting kids and families to yoga through little om BIG OM, Jamie can be found chasing around town with her three fun kids.
Mary is ecstatic for this opportunity to combine two passions of engaging with children and practicing mindfulness and yoga to teach children’s yoga! She has been a nanny, babysitter, and care provider for over a decade and loves to be active and imaginative with children. She began her exploration of yoga in college and expanded it while spending six years in Sedona Arizona, hiking and exploring the wilderness and beauty there. She loves to listen to and share music that promotes good feelings, positivity, and hopefulness. She also loves to bake and cook from scratch using healthy ingredients and share her recipes and dishes with friends and family. You can check out her recipes at Well Rounded Guru, a health and wellness website she has created with her partner Jourdan. She lives in East Madison with Jourdan and their dog Jaya. You will often find all three of them riding bike on the bike path, working on outdoor projects in the backyard, or playing and singing music together. Mary is a 200 hour RYT Certified Yoga Instructor with a certificate from Yoga Education Institute for Kids Yoga Instruction.
Yoga is included in our Older Toddler, Preschool, 4K and School Age programs.
