About the Director – Helen Bauer

Laughter Yoga Leader & Teacher

Helen Bauer - Laughter Yoga Leader & Families Makin' Music DirectorHelen holds certificates in voice from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto ON, studied at the Dalcroze School (Eurythmics), Carnegie Mellon U, Pittsburgh, PA, and has participated in the Musician & Leadership program of MUSIC for PEOPLE, Litchfield, CT.

She has completed her Mastership Level One Certification in Early Childhood Music, and Elementary General Music, from the Gordon Institute for Music Learning Theory at Michigan State University, and Music In Early Childhood at the Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music.

Furthering her studies, she has completed courses in “Music for the Unborn” and more on “Early Childhood Music & Movement” at Silver Lake College in Wisconsin.
In light of the fact that obesity in children is a major concern, and just as music and language should be taught from birth, so too, should healthy eating and exercise be similarily considered. Consequently, she has taken courses in Musical Yoga for young children with parents, Radiant Child Yoga, Yoga Kids, and the Young Yoga Masters programme.

Included in her training is Educational Kinesiology or Brain Gym, based on the work of Dr. Paul Dennison & Gail Dennison. Educational Kinesiology develops the brain’s neural pathways the way nature does, – through movement. There are 26 easy and fun targeted moves that integrate body and mind bringing about rapid and often dramatic improvements in listening, physical coordination, concentration, memory, reading, writing, organizing and the list goes on. It is a very powerful tool that is beneficial to everyone from the very young to the elderly. Studies have shown that doing Brain Gym actvities improve children’s performance and marks.

Ms. Bauer is both a  Certified Laughter Yoga Leader and Teacher, and is available to bring joy, fun, and laughter to any community gathering, event, party, school, college, church, synagogue, temple, corporation or business.

Musical theatre and TV/Radio singing have also been part of her repertoire, as has chorus singing in Canada, the U.S. (Lincoln Center), and abroad. She has presented on Dr. E. Gordon’s music pedagogy for the Early Childhood Music & Movement Association in the U.S., and eagerly continues her professional development in order to give her students the absolute best in music learning.
