Kids Kinship Feedback

"I thought the program was fun. The I Am Strong Meditative Movement™ is my favorite. Thank you for offering this class." Jakkan


"The students at Prosperity Heights Elementary really enjoyed Ellie's workout. They liked the I Am Healthy Meditative Movement™ and I Am Strong Meditative Movement™ the best. It was fun to educate the students on the power of affirmations. As a reminder the word affirmation is on our Word Wall in the gym." Wally Grant P.E. Teacher (MN Elem. P. E. Teacher of the Year 1995)


"This was a great addition to my aerobics and conditioning class! All of my students had very positive feedback and the affirmations helped them realize the importance of saying positive things to themselves on a regular basis! Ellie's passion for this type of aerobics was definitely shown and was contagious! She did a wonderful job and I really hope to have her back to share her talent with my future students!" Kelly Harris, High School Health and Physical Education Teacher
