About Us

Just Starting Out

FreedOM Youth Yoga was founded in Autumn of 2018, certified through Kidding Around Yoga, an international children's yoga program.

NonProfit Organization

Gaining 501(C)3 status in December 2018 means that donations to FreedOM Youth Yoga's are tax deductible, and will fund instruction for Smyrna's less fortunate youth.

First Glowing Testimonial

"My daughter was able to attend the first yoga class! I was so amazed watching her be so engaged and present throughout the class! Jillian is such a wonderful teacher and we can’t wait to go back! 🧘🏻‍♀️

Any parents who have kids 2-5 years old and are in the Marietta/Smyrna area must come check out the class at the Smyrna Community Center!"


Inspired by the words of Mahatma Ghandi

"The outward freedom that we shall attain will only be in exact proportion to the inward freedom to which we may have grown at any given moment."

Distilling the many voices around us - and inside our heads - down to a clearer truth, encourages the freedom that comes from listening to our true selves.  Exercising, breathing, and taking time to be still can help narrow the staggering racial wealth gap in America, combat obesity, and help children grow to attain their fullest potential.  The vision of FreedOM Youth Yoga is to provide access to yoga instruction for Smyrna youth ages 2-18, regardless of limited economics.
