November 3 - November 4
Level 1 Foundations | Farmingdale, New York$499.00 - Purchase
This is a stand-alone training event AND the first step of our Full Certification track.
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: Vanessa Hill
Vanessa fell in love with yoga during her first class in 2006. In that first Savasana, she felt an intense feeling of gratitude. Yoga has been such a guiding force in her life, helping her manage her Type A mindset by learning to live each day in the present. She feels blessed to live by the 8 limbs of yoga, as they allow her to live in a better way. Vanessa knew she had to share her love of yoga, becoming a yoga teacher is a dream come true. While she loves teaching adults, being a mother to two young daughters helped her realize the positive impact yoga can have on children. Vanessa is a RYT-200 and a CYKT. Teaching children with YogaKids has become her life’s passion. She feels honored and blessed to share mindfulness, asana and fun during her YogaKids classes. Namaste.
