Meet the teacher

Ange Gervankids yogaAnge (Karma Kids NY) offers a very soothing presence to kids as a youth yoga teacher. She started her journey working with children while enchanting audiences at Walt Disney during a university internship well over 20 years ago. Her passion for well-being and different cultures led her to travel and explore holistic health through her twenties, where she lived and traveled Asia. During this time she completed her advanced Hatha Yoga studies with world renowned Donna Farhi and completed the prestigious Karma Kids (Tokyo & New York) youth yoga training. While backpacking and volunteering with various programmes through Asia she found sharing Yoga with youth a great gift to connect and communicate. In her time teaching at primary schools in Japan, she discovered that teaching yoga was a fantastic means to establish deeper connections and enhance communication with young students who were learning English.

She went on to develop several youth yoga programs and offered these at Yoga Yard in Beijing, serving the expat community during the year of the 2008 Olympics while she was pursuing interest in TCM and acupuncture. In NZ she has taught kids yoga at Youthtown, various schools in Auckland and at kindy over the years with her children. Ange is Mum to 3 sparkly young girls, holds a BComms & BHSc (Acupuncture & TCM). Her acupuncture speciality is women’s health and paediatrics so she likes to offer the kids knowledge of helpful acupressure points in her yoga sessions to which will empower them on their future health journey.

Sessions with Ange will start and close with relaxation. The session will take kids on a creative adventure of yoga poses guiding a story, all age appropriate, fun and interactive! Kids will learn some yoga health tools to take home and apply to everyday life!
