CosmiKids Presents Angel Bear Yoga
Program Creator & Director, Christi Eley
As experts will attest, many children today lack sufficient opportunities to learn core principles and positive character traits or take part in creative activities that enable them to develop their imagination. Angel Bear Yoga™ was created to meet all of these needs while promoting quality time together for parents and children.
Specifically designed to hold children’s attention with entertaining characters and games that incorporate imagery, animal poses, and entertainment into the practice of yoga, Angel Bear Yoga nurtures children’s spirits by attaching a symbolic character-building lesson to each pose and then following an adventuresome storyline that demonstrates how all things in nature reflect back to character.
Children follow Angel Bear into the forest for weekly adventures. Along the way, they learn to embody positive character traits by doing various yoga poses that coincide with the story. Children love going on adventures with Angel Bear and Sweet Pea. They also love the relaxing exercises and cherish the outdoor/nature poses that allow them to express how they see character all around them. Parents love Angel Bear Yoga too as it provides new opportunities for communication with their children.
Throughout the course of the program, children learn about things like courage, respect, honesty, and hope through the poses they embody.
Angel Bear Yoga comprises 50 poses and character traits, and is designed for children 3-11 years. Angel Bear Yoga is also complemented by a beautifully designed array of products, including Yoga Mats, Cards, and Companion Activity Books, DVDs, Playdecks and CDs.

“Yoga for kids helps instill values and positive character traits into your children, so they can learn to be like the great leaders of our time. When your character is built on spiritual and moral foundation, your contagious way of life will influence millions."
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Program Creator & Director: Christi Eley
Christi Eley received her children's yoga training and certification through YogaKids (Phase 1), a premiere international yoga program for children. She also completed YogaEd Teacher Training Certification, a nationally-recognized program working to bring yoga into schools throughout the country.
Also certified in Infant Massage and Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga and Itsy Bitsy Yoga, Christi has taught children's yoga in preschools, public and private schools, yoga studios, sporting centers, and more.
In her experience teaching children's yoga, Christi discovered that though children were becoming active and learning yoga postures, there wasn't enough substance to the programs other than fun and games. Since kids love to pretend to be animals, she created the Angel Bear Yog program to make yoga a more meaningful experience for children during family activities.
Christi lives in Winston-Salem, NC, with her husband Mark and two beautiful daughters, Erin and Sidney. In addition to homeschooling her daughters, Christi teaches at the Children's Museum of Winston-Salem and the Montessori school.
