One of the most gratifying parts of running a small business is collaborating with other entrepreneurs who hold a shared mission and a willingness to collectively bring that mission to life. We know that the work we do is most powerful when we see ourselves as just one of the many threads braiding together to bring a new learning landscape forward for kids. So when we get to meet some of the other "threads," we hold them close as part of a mighty tribe working together to make a meaningful dent in this wild world.
When we were first introduced to Incia Palmieri's business "Once Upon a Mat," we immediately felt her honest intention to consciously bring mindfulness to young kids. She creatively looks for new avenues to bring yoga, storytelling, relaxation to children through movement and mindful activities. She epitomizes the "wellspring" spirit in that she connects parents with various opportunities for kids to more deeply get in touch with themselves and the world around them.
Incia Palmieri is a graduate of Political Science from York University and holds a Master of Science in Education degree from Medaille College. She completed her yoga trainings from Rainbow Kids Yoga and Radiant Child Yoga and Postnatal Yoga from Toronto Yoga Mamas, 200 YTT from Karma Teachers & is Yoga Alliance designated E-RYT 200 & YACEP. She has been teaching yoga to kids and families for 5 years across studios, communities and schools.
