IT IS TIME TO BRING MINDFULNESS TO SCHOOLS.
Research shows that yoga can support students in self-regulation of emotions, increase students' ability to focus, collaborate and concentrate while improving their self-esteem.
That's why we offer three opportunities for you to bring these tools to life in your community:
IN-SCHOOL TRAINING FOR EDUCATORS: We offer successful on-site trainings for educators, administrators, and therapists in your own school. We offer single three-hour in-service day trainings, or an 8-week Educator Mentorship.
BOOK A TEACHER FOR YOUR STUDENTS: Deven is available to teach the children in your school through the Namaspa Foundation.
YOGA IN SCHOOLS TEACHER TRAINING: As part of our Kids Yoga Teacher Training curriculum, we invite individual educators, yoga teachers, counselors to participate in our teacher training- either ala carte or in full.
LET US BRING THIS WISDOM TO YOUR SCHOOL.
PLEASE TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL AND NEEDS, AND WE'LL CONTACT YOU TO SCHEDULE A 20-MINUTE INTAKE.
LEARN TO TEACH YOGA IN SCHOOLS
JOIN OUR COHORT OF LEADERS WHO ARE SHARING THE PRACTICE OF YOGA, MEDITATION AND MINDFULNESS TO SCHOOLS NATIONWIDE.
Share your wisdom of yoga, meditation and mindfulness with kids.
Begin with our online course, Introduction to Kids Yoga Philosophy. Continue in-person for three in-person modules that will hone your understanding, practice teaching, and integration. These can be taken ala carte for continuing education credits, or in sequence to prepare for the full certification.
The full certification allows for one of two focuses: To become a Certified Kids Yoga Teacher, or to become a Certified Family AcroYoga Teacher. These foci are specialized and will allow you to share these practices formally as an extension of your teaching practice.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact our team directly.
Do I have to take all three modules to get into Yoga in Schools, or can I just sign up a la carte?
If you are an educator in a school, you can take this course on its own. If you'd like to go for the whole 95 hour training and get certified as a Kids Yoga Teacher, we require the three prior modules.
Do you come to teach educators in schools?
Yes! Deven is ready to give your educators the tools that promote social-emotional learning and mindful physical movement. Deven curates a formalized training for your school depending on your budget and expectations. She can offer a single three hour in-service day trainings, or an eight (8) week Educator Mentorship through her children's yoga school. Please email her to set up a consult.
Is housing, transportation, or food included in the tuition?
This program is a day program only. All students are responsible for their own housing, transportation and food during the training. That said, if you need help with housing, we will share that need with our community, who often host students from out of town. You can request that when you fill out your registration form for this workshop event.
