I was afraid the day would be long and exhausting. It was the opposite. The curriculum and Trainer made the day move along quickly with a variety of activities, lots of time for interesting discussion, a nice combination of movement and sitting, and just an overall fun, dynamic day full of useful information for incorporating movement and mindful activities in schools!

The Teacher Training for School-Based Educators gave me the knowledge, courage and tools to offer Yoga to kids in our community schools!

I have taught Yoga before in my PE classes at school but stopped years ago because I don’t like teaching them a whole Yoga class. I see now that I can just do a few things and not have to do a full class. Love the new ideas!

I do adult Yoga and wasn’t sure how to make this fun for kids. Now I see how easy it can be and I am excited to share with my school partners!

I didn’t think I could do this as I don’t do Yoga. I was nervous. But after our Trainer showed us how to use the props and cards, I feel confident that I can do this in the classroom.
