Our YogaKids Mindfulness & Movement for Kids Foundations Training takes a whole-child approach, integrating math, science, literacy, art, music and more. This approach is fun, empowering and fully capable of reaching students of all ages and abilities.
Whether your aim is to become a kids yoga teacher or to get new tools for integrating yoga into a child-friendly environment, (classroom, home, office) our Foundations Training is the place to begin.
This event is held in areas around the world. The program introduces attendees to this one-of-a-kind way of teaching mindfulness and yoga to children. This program is about more than just teaching kids yoga poses. It blends traditional yoga and its benefits with theories of multiple learning styles in a comprehensive, imaginative, and playful approach to education.
This revolutionary approach was developed by YogaKids founder, yoga-pioneer/ educator/author Marsha Wenig. It has been helping children and adults discover the pleasures and benefits of yoga for over 20 years.
2 Full Days of Training with a YogaKids Teacher Trainer
Attendees will learn all 14 of the YogaKids Elements, the building blocks of this amazing program. These Elements (Math Medley, Laughing Language, Visual Vignettes… to name just a few) incorporate all the different ways children learn. Combining yoga with reading, writing, science, art, music, games, ecology, philosophy creates a matrix for learning that’s accessible to all children.
Other topics covered during the workshop include:
- the different developmental stages of children
- inclusive teaching
- guidelines for teaching a successful YogaKids class
This program introduces students to the 20 categories of YogaKids poses/activities. There are over 185 poses/activities- the Foundations Training teaches 85 of them. Some poses are based on traditional yoga asanas. Many others are unique to the YogaKids program. In addition, attendees will learn successful strategies for lesson planning an original YogaKids class.
Our program has been endorsed by Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Andrew Weil, and Jean Houston, Ph.D. It is the original training program of its kind.
