Robyn Parets is a certified yoga teacher, former owner of Breathe Joy Yoga studio in Massachusetts, and a digital content strategist. She has taught hundreds of yoga classes and trained scores of adults to teach yoga through her 200-hour teacher training course and the Pretzel Kids certification program.
Robyn launched Pretzel Kids in 2005 under the umbrella of Breathe Joy Yoga (which she sold in 2016). She originally started the Pretzel Kids yoga program to offer classes to children in her own community. She ultimately teamed up with two school teachers (also yoga instructors) to create a curriculum, manual and training course so that others could also teach these effective classes. Pretzel Kids classes are now taught in schools, preschools, after-school programs, camps, YMCAs, gyms, and countless other places.
The Pretzel Kids teacher training course was so successful that Pretzel Kids launched its online training course in 2015. Now adult students around the globe can learn our proven methodology and begin teaching children’s yoga classes immediately!
Robyn graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in journalism and social sciences. As a journalist, she has written for Investor's Business Daily (IBD), NerdWallet, Chimebank.com, Consumers Digest, Rebelle Society, Elephant Journal, BeYogi, Yoga Download and many other publications and blogs. Also a sought-after content marketing expert and yoga business consultant, Robyn writes the Pretzel Kids blog and helps PK teachers run their own successful classes. Robyn lives in Boston with her family and Pretzel Dog! She practices and teaches yoga at Studio U, takes road trips, searches for flea market finds, and tries to keep current with her personal musings blog at Away From Om.
