About

Nanda Yoga Fort Worth Children's Yoga Studio

Nanda Yoga provides classes and workshops for students aged 6 weeks to 18 years. In Nanda Yoga’s non-competitive and inclusive environment, the students build strength, flexibility, coordination, and body awareness through playful yoga poses, yoga games, mindfulness, art, sensory activities, engaging music, puppets, and stories. Nanda Yoga encourages a feeling of well-being and respect for others which results in greater love for one's self, inside and out. During class, the teachers introduce kids to yoga's true meaning: union, expression, and honor for oneself and the community that surrounds them. Classes are created based on the developmental needs for each age range and will provide an integrated learning experience that your child will love!

As Seen In

History

Nanda Yoga, LLC was formed in January 2019 and immediately began hosting pop-ups at various small businesses, parks, green spaces, and local festivals (including Friday on The Green and Mayfest) in order to grow its brand. Nanda Yoga continued to grow through working with several local small businesses including the Art Room, Leaves, Rogers Roundhouse, B.Kids, Grace and Grit, and Happy Lark. Nanda Yoga currently has school yoga programs at Mi Casita, Trinity Valley School, Montessori School of Fort Worth and Harlean Beal. We also collaborate with the Fort Worth Public Library to teach yoga through their Early Childhood Matters program as well as hosting a nature-based yoga program through the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT). These programs create a deeper connection to the community and provide creative ways to introduce yoga into existing programming.

The Space

In addition to the two studios, Nanda Yoga has created a welcoming environment filled with a flex space for eating, birthday parties, loose parts play and meeting with friends as well as a sensory play space equipped with a climbing wall, aerial swings, infant area and much more to keep your littles entertained. We welcome you to come early and stay after class to mingle with Nanda Friends.

Nanda Yoga is owned and operated by Kate Murphy, a Fort Worth native. Kate graduated from the University of Texas in 2007 with a degree in Early Childhood Education. In 2008 Kate received her first 30-hour children’s yoga certification through Radiant Child Yoga and from there has acquired additional certifications through The Little Yoga House, Kira Willey, YoKid, and Karma Kids Yoga as well as business coaching through Next Generation Yoga. Kate is a registered yoga teacher at the 200-hour level and is also certified in Pre/Post Natal Yoga, Baby Yoga and Movement, as well as Infant Massage Therapy. She is also a certified Playmaker through the Life is Good Foundation.  

Prior to forming Nanda Yoga, Kate lived and worked in Switzerland and France. She thoroughly enjoyed her travels and experiences abroad.  She moved home in 2010 to begin her professional career as a Certified Child Life Specialist (CCLS) in Hematology and Oncology at Cook Children’s Medical Center.

Working with children has always been Kate’s passion and she is so excited to create this amazing yoga sanctuary for children here in her hometown. It is truly an honor! 

When Kate is not teaching yoga she loves exploring the great outdoors and running around with her 2 boys, Garrett and Bennett and husband, Jim.
