Missy Brown (she/her)President and founder of Deep Play for Kids, LLC (“DPK”)
Missy Brown is a seasoned yoga and wellness practitioner and teacher with over 40 years of practice, and 25 years as an educator. Inspired by her many years working with children, her best teachers, Missy took her vast knowledge of the tools of yoga, mindfulness, and meditation, adapted them for children, and developed a straightforward method for teaching them. This led her to create Deep Play for Kids, LLC (“DPK”). Through DPK, Missy shares these methods with children of all ages and abilities. In addition, Missy offers self-care workshops, DPK curriculums, programs, and certifications for adults. They experience, embody, use these for themselves as well as learn to instruct and offer the methods to the children in their lives (as teachers, therapists, parents, caregivers, etc.). With her loving engaging presence and joyful creativity, Missy’s DPK experiences are steeped in science and skillfully delivered through play. Mindful, multi-sensory, body centered practices are explored and discovered with respect, inclusion, safety, knowledge, and open-hearted authenticity. Missy also created a product line of yoga, breath and meditation tools that have been used across all ages (from kids to the elderly) and settings (at home, in school, health care facilities, the workplace, and more). Navigating life's journey with connection, wonder, transformation and ease are at the core of Missy's mission driven work with all populations. While holding numerous certifications, Missy stays committed to being a lifelong student. She founded and operated a children's yoga, cooking, enrichment, and training wellness center for many years. Her life's curriculum is what makes DPK unique, genuine and adaptable. Referred to as an inspiring pioneer in this field, Missy is passionate in sharing as these practices have changed her life, her children's lives, and she truly believes they have the possibility to change lives of many generations.
