Debbi Banasiak has more than 20 years of experience teaching preschool and kindergarten and began her yoga practice in 2000. Almost immediately, Debbi recognized the benefits that yoga could have for children. In 2006, Debbi trained with Helen Garabedian, the founder of Itsy Bitsy Yoga International, and obtained certification as an Itsy Bitsy Yoga Facilitator. Since then, Debbi has taught yoga to babies, toddlers and preschoolers locally. Through her training, Debbi has learned how to promote the many benefits of yoga in the lives of young children, while simultaneously helping parents bond with their children. Debbi’s classes are based on her training with Helen and her many years teaching young children through music and movement.



Debbi’s education has generally been in Early Childhood Education. In addition to college courses she has attended numerous workshops and seminars. Debbi enjoys spending time with her husband Mark, her two daughters, Shaunna and Ashley, and three grandchildren, Kiara, Rainy and Bradley. Debbi has a daily yoga practice and also enjoys Pilates as well as spending time outside walking and gardening.
