Meet the Staff

Michelle Mitchell, Co-Founder of YoKidMichelle Kelsey Mitchell, M.S., RYT 500
Co-Founder & Executive Director

Michelle worked in the public school systems of Northern Virginia and Buffalo, New York, for over ten years.  She has a M.S. in Counseling & Human services, and an undergraduate degree in Sports Medicine with a minor in Sports Psychology.  Her work with students has made her aware of the deep need for the early cultivation of self-awareness in our society.  Michelle believes that yoga can help children, as well as adults, reach their fullest potential.

She hopes that YoKid…Stretch Your Limits will allow everyone in her community benefit from the unique practice of yoga. Michelle believes that YoKid’s teacher certification is an important way that community members can give back and, literally, change our society from the inside out.
