Allison Hinton is a CYKT instructor. She and her husband, Scott, raised their family in Colorado and now spend their time between their home in the mountains of Colorado and their ranch in Ringgold, Texas. Allison is a proud mom of a police officer and four beautiful stepchildren. She has 12 grandchildren in Colorado and is ever grateful for her large, beautiful, blended family. Allison loves children. She believes wholeheartedly in the YogaKids program. Her classes are all themed to be fun and educational – utilizing books, music, art, games and playful props. Age appropriate breathing techniques and postures encourage well-being, social and emotional maturity and self-control. Each class is personalized around children’s curiosities as they learn yoga through social interaction, repetition, and play. The primary fitness skills that develop as a result of yoga are strength, flexibility and balance. Children also learn how to relieve frustration, improve motor skills, and increase attention span by actively following directions.
