About Leelou Poppins
Leelou completed a bachelor degree in Education (2011) and a short program in Literature for Children (2012) at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, a Reiki certification with Reiki Samasati school in Mexico (2013), and the 3-Day Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training in Montréal (2013). During her studies, she worked as a research auxiliary in the field of teaching French as a second language and visited alternatives schools in Quebec, France, and Belgium.
Leelou worked with children from different cultures in various environments such as schools, daycares, French immersion programs, outdoor camps, community events, festivals, etc. She moved to Naramata during summer 2014 and fell in love with Apex community the following winter. She has since shared the Rainbow Yoga love at Rippin' Rascals daycare, Jumping Beans PlayCafé, Naramata Community Market, Naramata Playschool, and more.
She is a Rainbow Yoga Ambassador in the Okanagan valley, a member of the Alliance for Self-Directed Education, and a board member of the newly formed Apex Community Association. She is passionate about sharing social-emotional learning through yoga and mindfulness playdates, and offering services for children and families in her community.

About Rainbow Yoga
"Our unique style of Rainbow Yoga is communal, interactive and fun! It celebrates life and brings people together! [...] In Rainbow Yoga we connect with touch, massage, hugs, dance, we move together and we co-create the class in a magical way that creates a playful space for everybody to feel loved and nurtured. [...] We practice in a circle, often connected through body and heart; we honor and celebrate the circle of life."
Money shouldn't be a boundary to yoga playdates:
This is why I offer them mostly by donation.
This is also why I volunteered and invested so much on this website.
$ 1010 were raised online
between 24 generous daydreamers, peacebuilders, and changemakers!
