“Penny brings fine credentials to yoga practice with young children. Professionally, she taught Early Childhood Education (teacher training) to students at Heritage College for 24 years. Personally, Penny has practiced a range of yoga styles. Now, Penny has training in yoga teaching. Her lessons with groups of children are full with movement, stretching, imagery, and music. They are energizing and relaxing. For a young child yoga inspires a sense of one’s body and an a ability to focus.”


Gretchen Reynolds PhD (Education) – Faculty, Algonquin College, Early Childhood Education Department



 “The children and staff of Sunflower Cooperative Day Nursery are always so excited when it is our special day for yoga. The children listen to her stories and participate with all the different yoga poses. “ Even those who are usually rowdy tend to calm down and participate. I love watching the children engaged in this way. I hope that we will be able to have Penny and her Magic Mats visit us for a  long time to come.’
