HOW DOES KAY4ALL WORK?
You will move through a few modules and many units covering all of our topics from reflection to self-assessment to explanations of terms. You will complete a unit in order to unlock the following units. You can return to any completed lesson at any time and you will not lose your place. If you happen to leave the program during your training, fear not. KAY4ALL will always know exactly where you left off. And all links in the training will open up a new tab or window, so don’t be afraid to click. There will be a lot of videos and articles to reference and enrich your knowledge. At the end you will be given your certificate to download, and you will be prepared to incorporate KAY4ALL in your classes and communities.
KAY4ALL DOES NOT MAKE YOU A CERTIFIED YOGA TEACHER. If you would like to become a certified kids yoga instructor we offer two great options:
We feel that Kids Yoga teachers (and all humans) should always be educated about issues of diversity and prepared to create safe and welcome spaces for every single person, regardless of who they are or how they appear. We encourage all of our teachers to spend some time in self-reflection to work with the injustices inherent in our societal framework. Parents who feel welcome and met, and see that their children are included and welcomed will know that their child’s teacher is inclusive and are more likely to send their child to class. We encourage everyone whether through this training or any other method to help to make Yoga accessible to ALL children.
KAY4ALL is only $108. And if you are a Kidding Around Yoga graduate, you get the discounted price of $75.
