Event Navigation

This Level 1 Training is a stand-alone training event AND the first step of our Full Certification track..
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 3 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 the different developmental stages of children, 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.

Vickey Foster

TRAINER: Vickey Foster, M.Ed, RYT, CYKT

Vickey has been teaching children of all ages for over 20 years. As a classroom teacher, Vickey was looking for more ways to incorporate movement into her lesson plans when she learned about YogaKids. Working exclusively with students who have behavioral and mental health disorders Vickey knew that yoga could offer numerous benefits. From teaching social skills to stress management, Vickey has been weaving yoga into the daily lives of her students. Vickey was introduced to yoga in 1998 at the American Dance Festival and has continued to explore its benefits ever since. She enjoys sharing her passion for movement with others and is an AFAA Group Exercise instructor, a certified Pilates reformer teacher, and a registered Yoga Alliance teacher. When she isn’t teaching she is out enjoying bike rides with her family, paddling with her Dragon boat team, or traveling to warm and sunny destinations.
