Secular-Based and Trauma-Informed Curriculum
Dedicated to bringing the tools of mindfulness and yoga to children, teens and adults.
Mindful Yoga Programs are based on Little Flower Yoga's evidence-based, trauma-informed methodology, a program designed to help your child become the best version of themselves, teaching life skills that can help them navigate life's challenges now and for years to come. LFY's proven curriculum challenges students to learn in new ways, making connections, and recognizing their tremendous capacity to achieve.
It is in Marianne's heart to bring mindful practices to school settings and communities in her area. She believes that this is a time of great challenge and opportunity for children growing up in today’s world, and that these practices can prepare children (and grown-ups) to meet these challenges with compassion, kindness, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and confidence-skills that will last a life time, and serve both the children and the communities they are a part of.

A Note from Your Teacher: Marianne Skye
I began my professional journey in 1999 as a Physical Therapist Assistant specializing in treating children with special needs and sensory processing dysfunction. As an integral part of multi-disciplinary preschool special education teams, focus was on the whole child. My experience includes creating sensory-friendly environments, both physical (as in classroom set-up) and internal, (as in our attitudes and intentions regarding the children served).
As a child I was a nervous quirky little girl who grew into a nervous quirky little lady. I was that kid who was shy, hyper-vigilant, disengaged, and leery toward life. Even though I grew up with lots of love in my home, the rule of thumb in the 70’s was “spare the rod, spoil the child” both at home and at catholic school. It did a number on me!
I remember walking to school in first grade with an upset stomach nearly every day. Nobody talked about anxiety, no one offered a way for me to feel grounded and safe, we were tasked with tolerating and burying these feelings.
I couldn’t wait to be a grown-up, being a child was stressful and scary.
I recognize this in kids and adults alike, it tugs at my heart-strings, and inspires me share what I learned through my own personal transformation.
I have to say that these mind/body practices are easy, and are the favorite part of my day. It’s easy to do every day because the benefits, although very subtle, are also very profound. In the moment, I have the immediate benefit of feeling better right now!!! And what I’ve noticed over time was that my nervous system was getting re-trained so that my “default setting” of anxiety was fading, and my “default setting” of being calm and centered was stronger and stronger.
