Sisters, Erin and Katy, were blessed with active childhoods full of swim lessons, gymnastics classes, and backyard play. These experiences laid the foundation for a love of fitness and active lifestyles as adults. In this spirit, they began Oko as a resource for parents wanting to provide intentional, age-appropriate movement activities for their children to help develop the physical skills and confidence needed in life.
The Oko curriculum is designed, built, and delivered by Erin H Feser.
Erin has been a coach, educator, and researcher in the field of sport and exercise for 25 years. She brings her knowledge base and an extensive background in coaching (preschool, developmental, and competitive gymnastics), group fitness, and university teaching to the Oko curriculum design. Currently, Erin is an Assistant Professor of Exercise Science at Belmont University and the Head of Science for Omorpho.
