Timely. Insightful. Connected.

This is Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training for School-Based Educators.

There is a lot expected of the modern classroom. Kids need to learn not only reading, writing, and arithmetic, but also how to manage their emotions and communicate well with others. Children benefit from keeping connected with their bodies and their feelings–learning to cope with feelings associated with stress and anxiety. Yoga and mindfulness practices can help.
Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training for School-Based Educators (SBE) provides classroom-specific strategies to bring kids yoga and mindfulness experiences to educational settings. Experienced trainers share their passion for this work as they facilitate a creative and insightful training curriculum. Trainees are given opportunities to interact with and learn from others in the field and to collaborate on innovative ways to offer classroom versions of yoga and mindfulness for students grades K-6.
Whether you are an educator who has experience with yoga and mindfulness or this is all new to you, the NGY Teacher Training for School-Based Educators will help you and your students thrive — bringing peace, presence, and positivity into school and classroom settings.

As a NGY SBE trainee, you’ll receive:

  • 8 hours of training led by a qualified School-Based Educator who is enthusiastic about this work. (This course is offered in both live and online formats — please see calendar for current offerings HERE)
  • A comprehensive kids yoga and mindfulness manual with resources for classroom success and business development. This manual includes two Next Generation Yoga® lesson plans and pose directives for over 100 yoga poses.
  • A digital set of colorful Next Generation Yoga® Yoga Cards for School-Based Educators, featuring 60 yoga & mindfulness activities in 6 categories, detailed instructions and photos.
  • An understanding of the benefits of yoga, mindfulness, and social-emotional learning within  school settings.
  • Instruction on how to plan and offer effective yoga and mindfulness moments, breaks, or activities, including ideas for blending yoga and mindfulness with art, music, books, and props.
  • Suggestions on how to support established curriculums such as literacy, math, and social studies with yoga and mindfulness activities.
  • How to use these techniques as part of overall classroom management strategy, including ways to help increase students’ focus, self-discipline, confidence, empathy, and cooperation and to reduce anxiety and stress.
  • Access to videos of kids yoga classes led by master teachers so students get to see real kids in real yoga classes … the highs, the lows, and everything in between!
  • Tools and strategies to practice self-care to help avoid fatigue and burnout.
  • Connection with others in a like-minded and supportive community, those who also value kids, yoga, mindfulness, and education!
  • Access to a instructor moderated private group for course graduates to stay connected, ask questions, and share ideas & information.
Whether you are an educator who has experience with yoga and mindfulness or this is all new to you, the NGY Teacher Training for School-Based Educators will help you and your students thrive — bringing peace, presence, and positivity into school and classroom settings.
Upon finishing the course, you’ll receive a certificate of completion and become a graduate of the Next Generation Yoga® Teacher Training for School-Based Educators program!*
