We live in a world of rhythm, starting with the bodily rhythms of the mother when a child is in utero, and continuing in the bigger world... Through these rhythms, children come to know the world and their place in it. An integral part of this rhythm and an element central to yoga is establishing the in and out breath of each child.

The Suryaside Kids Program

Created by an early childhood educator and a certified kids yoga teacher, we believe that emotions are essential to learning.

Story time, games, singing and dancing are not just fun but add to the betterment of the child’s well-being and emotional health.


Suryaside kids yoga utilizes movement activities, so that children can optimize their physical health through breath, balance, flexibility games and practice. Our kids program emphasizes self-challenge rather than competition, and in this way, children can begin the lifelong practice toward deeper knowledge about their own bodies in a fun and focused environment.


By focusing on mind-body activities which utilize relaxation methods based on yoga and meditation Suryaside Kids lays the groundwork for mindful living. Through concentration on the breath, children can direct their attention inward to develop introspection and self reflection.


Children grow in their spiritual lives through learning respect of their immediate environment and calm meditation practice. Spirituality for kids is also about fun and joy. With yogic laughter and games we provide children with the opportunity to access their inner creativity and spirit.

Our children are our future! 

Kana Hirano's life mission is to bring better education to all children. She believes that education can change the world and has over 10 years of experience working with children.


From volunteering to teaching kindergarten/pre-school in Japan and her present day teaching position at a private alternative education preschool in Manhattan, she has cultivated a very well rounded approach to child rearing. Kana graduated with a masters in early childhood education, but before becoming a teacher she traveled around the world observing and studying in kindergartens and orphanages. One of the places she volunteered was Mother Teresa's orphanage house in Kolkata, India.


It is her quest for knowledge, along with her sense of compassion, community service, and social responsibilty that keeps driving Kana forward in her mission of providing better education for all children.
