Learn all the benefits of Full Certification here.
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: Gail Grossman, E-RYT & CYKT
Gail Grossman, E-RYT 500, CYKT, founder of Om Sweet Om Yoga in Port Washington has been sharing the gift of yoga for decades. She started her journey teaching kids in 2000. Her students describe her as a very nurturing teacher who can quietly touch every muscle in their physical and emotional body, which leaves them feeling relaxed, grounded and happy.
Gail’s book Restorative Yoga for Life has been very well received, ranking in the top 1% of Amazon.com book sales. Her audience extends far beyond the established yoga community, reaching many who have never had a yoga practice.
Gail’s offerings include trainings, workshops and retreats for all levels of fitness. Sharing her knowledge of yoga’s life-changing potential truly feeds her soul. She is grateful to all the students she has met on this journey and is equally grateful for all the teachers present and past who have helped to shape her into the teacher she has become.
Ultimately, Gail’s work is informed by her intuitive inner voice, which has guided her at every step on her path.
