Apple, banana, and pie—no, we aren’t referencing things we want to eat for dessert. Instead, in addition to well-known phrases like “warrior,” “tree,” or “corpse,” Kate Murphy of Fort Worth’s Nanda Yoga guided yelpers with family-friendly yoga on Saturday, February 6, 2021.
About Kate, she opened Fort Worth’s first children’s yoga studio. And she believes yoga is a “fun-filled way for children and their grown-ups (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.) to spend quality time together while enjoying an exciting and healthy activity.”
Yelpers had a lot of fun starting off their weekend with early-morning stretches, but don’t take out word for it. Check out the five-star raves here and see a few of the highlights below:
“We got a good stretch, recited positive mantras, had some silly fun making animal noises… the apple, banana, pancake challenged us, and now feel good to get going this morning. We really loved hearing the young one singing at the end at hollering a fun “thank you!” —Kelsey B
‘Kate is a skilled instructor whose class appeals to adults and children alike, something that is really hard to do. She has a fun and playful style. Poses were well explained, and Kate offered several modifications based on skill level as well. Today’s class was never boring and did not feel like work; the 45 minutes just flew by.” —Ash O
“Namaste! This was the friendliest yoga class I’ve ever taken! Thank you, Nanda Yoga Kate, for kicking off my Saturday in the most wholesome way possible. Kate’s wonderfully playful energy could be felt across the Zoom platform and into my living room. I’ll fondly remember Kate’s interpretation of the poses the next time I am practicing yoga. So happy!” —Lisa M
“Kate used imagery such as taking a heavy sponge then wringing it out to release your stress. She mentioned putting weights on and taking one-off. Positive energy is created Through her three mantras: “I am strong. I am kind. I am loved.” —Zo M
“From seated cat cows to superman to tree positions, so much fun to stretch with Kate. Apple, banana, pancake, apple, banana pose!” —Helene S
