This event, held in areas around the world, introduces attendees to the YogaKids’ one-of-a-kind way of teaching yoga to children. The YogaKids program is more than just 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, developed by YogaKids founder, yoga-pioneer/ educator/author Marsha Wenig, has been helping children — along with adults — discover the pleasures and benefits of yoga for over 20 years.
Attendees will experience 2 full days of life-changing love and laughter, led by one of our experienced trainers. They 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.
Attendees also will be introduced to the 20 categories of YogaKids poses/activities. The YogaKids program has over 185 poses/activities and the Foundations Training teaches 85 of them. (The others can be learned by joining the Certification track.) Some poses are based on traditional yoga asanas, while many are unique to the YogaKids program. In addition, attendees will learn successful strategies for lesson planning and will have the opportunity to team-teach an original YogaKids class to children. Other topics covered during the workshop include teaching teens, inclusive teaching, and guidelines for teaching a successful YogaKids class.
Foundations Training events are for anyone wanting to give the gift of yoga to children: yogis, parents, teachers, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and other child-focused professionals. No yoga experience is required.

TRAINER: Holly Love, MA,OTR/L, SIPT, CYKT
Designing creative learning experiences for children is something Holly has done passionately for over 25 years as a pediatric occupational therapist, and as a mom of three (now grown) daughters. She was new to yoga when she began her YogaKids training in 2010, and quickly realized the profound physical, mental and spiritual benefits of developing her own yoga practice. Completing the training to become a Certified YogaKids Teacher has given Holly endless ideas, inspiration and support for weaving together some of her most favorite things — like yoga, children’s literature, music, art, ecology and stress management, in a playful, cooperative and educational venue for children of all ages and abilities. Holly’s mission as a YogaKids trainer is to share the knowledge she’s gained and to start a ripple that will hopefully inspire and prepare others to nurture and empower children to grow up feeling happy, strong, peaceful and loved.
