Dana Vitolo is the founder of Peace Kids Rock, with the goal of inspiring and promoting peace and mindfulness for children through yoga and peace education. She is a nine-year veteran teacher in the Montessori classroom and is a fully accredited member of the American Montessori Society. Dana, along with her husband, Ralph, and two cats, moved to South Florida from New York in 2013. After relocating, Dana began practicing Yoga regularly at Native Yoga Center after school to de-stress and to relieve anxiety. She also shared Yoga with her students during the school day and immediately noticed great results, such as increased confidence and focus. Dana has decided to spread peace and mindfulness beyond the classroom to help all kids through yoga, storytelling, and fun, peaceful activities. Dana is also a Montessori Teacher Trainer for Summit Montessori Teacher Training Institute (SMTTI) in Davie, FL where she teaches workshops on Early Childhood Montessori Philosophy. Dana is a certified Kids Yoga Instructor through Kidding Around Yoga and has also completed her 200-hour RYT yoga training and certification at Native Yoga Center in Juno Beach.
