Bobbi Hamilton received her B.A. from U.C. Berkeley, and became a published Breast Cancer Researcher working for the Department of Surgery and Comprehensive Cancer Center at U.C.S.F. It was while working in the cancer field that Bobbi became aware of the growing epidemic of childhood obesity and diabetes. She soon began to create, produce, and direct “Play-a-long” interactive programs, DVDs, and games to assist in the prevention and reversal of childhood disease. Her first program, Animal Yoga for Kids aired on PBS Kids as Yoga Breaks promo spots reaching an estimated 20 million households. She also produced and co-directed two HD children’s instructional dance and hula hooping videos reaching 2 million school children.
Bobbi’s love of movement began as a childhood athlete. She won her first National title as a baton twirler at the age of 10, and became a World Champion by age 15. She went on to become a Junior Olympic and All-American springboard diver, and has competed in Sr. Nationals on 10m Tower as a Division 1 collegiate athlete. She has trained under Olympic diving coaches, and world-renowned yoga and martial arts teachers in several schools and forms including Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Anusara, Sivananda, Iyengar, Kundalini, Tibetan Energetic Yoga Therapy, Thai Yoga Massage, Pranayama, Meditation, Tae Kwon Do, Wushu, and Kick Boxing. Bobbi is a certified yoga teacher and lifelong devotee of yoga and movement therapy. She has taught in numerous classrooms, studios, and gyms around the US and on International tours. Bobbi has represented multiple products and companies as a print and commercial athletic model and stuntwoman. Bobbi provides practical health advice as a yoga and fitness advocate, children’s health expert, and wellness spokesperson.
Bobbi currently resides in Los Angeles where she runs her company Phresh, and teaches kids, adults, and families in private and group settings including children with special needs, and celebrity clients. The Phresh Kids Mat is her first patent and green interactive toy product that was born from ten years of research, teaching, play-testing, and developing fitness content for kids. The mat is so effective as a fun and safe teaching tool and game that she is now launching Phresh Kids Mats into the global market place. It is Bobbi’s passion to make fitness fun, and help contribute solutions for a healthier generation of kids.
