MKY teachers

Kathryn Allen

I founded in 2011 with the sole purpose to bring the benefits of yoga to as many young children as possible.
We aim to foster children’s relationships between their mind and body in a way that they can grow into adults with the strength and flexibility, both physical and mental, to face what this fast paced world throws at them.

As an emergency trained nurse I came to yoga as a way to control stress but soon found the benefits to be amazingly holistic. Once becoming a mother I wanted my children to experience and benefit from the mindful practice thus I researched and completed my training and founded MKY.
I would describe my style as vibrant, intuitive and fun loving. I simply love what I do and am so proud of the unique and personal approach in which Elanor, Alice and myself undertake all of our yoga classes.

I completed my children’s yoga training with Rainbow Kids Yoga in 2011 and also hold certificates III & IV in Fitness. In addition to this I hold a Diploma of Nursing, Post Graduate Certificate in Emergency Nursing and a Certificate Four in Workplace Training and Assessment.

All of our teachers hold current working with children, police checks and are covered for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity.

Elanor Franklin

Elanor completed her university degree in teaching but her strong background in music and creative dance steered her away from a career in science teaching, and back to her more creative side, teaching children’s yoga and creative dance, lucky for us here at Melbourne Kids Yoga!
Now a mother of two beautiful boys, Elanor brings a wonderfully creative and playful approach to teaching whilst integrating music and dance.

Alice Woodbury

Alice is trained and works as a primary school music teacher. She just loves working with children and exudes an energy that is almost palpable. Also an accomplished singer, Alice approaches her yoga teaching in an upbeat and musical way that engages the children and extends their yoga practice.
