Rainey Oliver is a Kids Yoga Teacher, Laughter Yoga Leader and a Power Yoga and Outlaw Yoga Teacher. A yoga practitioner since 2010, Rainey quickly realized the benefits of stress relief, increased self-esteem, and overall greater health that yoga brought to her own life and desired to share these benefits with others, especially kids and pre-teens.

After teaching second grade in Commerce City, CO, Rainey stepped away from teaching children in an institutional setting. Since then she has focused on teaching yoga for children and adults and honoring joyful and childlike behavior in order to reduce stress and prolong good health.
