"We could never have loved the earth so well if we'd had no childhood in it"
~ George Elliot
Founded by Amanda McFadyen, and inspired by the original BlissKid (her daughter Zoey) BlissKids is a sweet, petite wellness company that has served York Region since 2006, offering a multitude of yoga and music services for families, preschools, schools, community programs, yoga studios, and more. After training with Marsha Wenig in 2006, kids yoga pioneer and creator of YogaKids, Amanda partnered with Rainbow Yoga, a world renowned Community Yoga training company based in Australia, becoming Rainbow Yoga’s Senior Trainer for Kids and Family Yoga trainings in North America in 2010. In 2012 Amanda co-created the Rainbow Kids Mentorship Program with Gopala Yaffe, Rainbow Yoga founder.
The years that followed were crazy-busy-fun, locally and globally, highlighted by BlissKids creative yoga camp, the evolution of Amanda's signature Yosic program, and full Rainbow trainings throughout North America.
Today, Amanda mostly meanders through life with her husband and 4 children, practicing the deep and humbling work of yoga that is family life. They live nestled in an incredible community of families who are together reimagining birth, parenting, education, nourishment, economics, politics, healing, aging and death, among other things.
In these rather unsettling times, the tools gleaned from yoga, specifically Rainbow Yoga, are especially practical and potent. Amanda is honoured to continue sharing Rainbow Yoga trainings in and around Toronto. Anyone who has, or works with children will benefit from this training immensely. In fact, anyone who wants to feel alive and remember who they are would benefit greatly.
As for BlissKids, fresh offerings are on the horizon; drum and singing circles, a revival of Yosic, partner yoga with a tantric twist, expressive and earth arts like poetry and felting, to name a few. Stay tuned!
