YOGAKIDS MINDFULNESS + MOVEMENT FOR KIDS FOUNDATIONS TRAINING - November 11-12th, 2017
Inspired by educational theorists Howard Gardner and Maria Montessori, our Mindfulness & Movement for Kids Foundations Training takes a whole-child approach — and integrates math, science, literacy, art, music and more. The approach is fun, empowering and fully capable of reaching students of all ages and abilities.
You will experience 2 full days of life-changing love and laughter, led by our Teacher Trainer Sara Hastings Morris. You will be introduced to 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. They combine yoga with reading, writing, science, art, music, games, ecology, philosophy and much more — and thus, create a matrix for learning that’s accessible to all children.
Foundations Training events are for anyone wanting to give the gift of mindfulness and movement to children: educators, parents, occupational therapists, speech therapists, yoga teachers, and other child-focused professionals. No yoga experience is required.
