Kidding Around Yoga School Workshops

Bringing yoga, meditation & mindfulness into your school & classrooms

What is the EduKAY School Workshop?

The EduKAY School Workshop is a six hour professional development opportunity delivered to you by one of our expert trainers. It provides educators with the skills necessary to introduce yoga, meditation and mindfulness into today’s demanding academic environment by guiding them through methods to integrate yogic concepts throughout the school day as they pertain to Behavior, Stress Management, and Health Awareness, all while increasing student engagement in a positive environment. Also included is unlimited access to all of the online resources shared during the workshop.

The EduKAY Workshop is available in the following formats:

  • In-person private group workshop at your location
  • Virtual private group workshop
  • Virtual pre-scheduled workshop – join a pre-scheduled workshop on your own or with a friend and meet other like-minded educators from around the globe

How do Educators Benefit?

In addition to all of the benefits mentioned above, teachers will have an easier time fitting the required health and physical fitness mandates into the school day. Additionally, EduKAY will help educators make academic content standards more engaging by using our methods and resources as a conduit for learning. Our system provides enough flexibility (ha ha!) to create yoga mini-lessons and yoga breaks that can serve as part of class meetings for character education topics tied to academic lessons. We provide focus and concentration exercises which serve as a foundation for mindfulness and as a place where all other academics are given the opportunity to thrive.

Educators complete EduKAY with a toolbox filled with:

  • Songs, stories, activities, and games that can be used singularly or within a mini-lesson or class meeting.
  • Ways to select learning standards from reading, math, or other content areas that are yoga-adaptable.
  • Meditation and mindfulness techniques.
  • Breathing techniques to use for themselves and with their students.
  • Ways to consistently incorporate yoga techniques into mini-lessons for their students.
  • Yoga breaks at transitional times.
  • MUSIC INCLUDED!* Some of our very best Kidding Around Yoga music geared for elementary-aged children.
  • As an added bonus, your teachers will gain LIFETIME access to all of the online resources shared during the workshop.

“Just wanted to share that the Tuesday after training I went all through the school and yoga, mindfulness and little brain breaks were EVERYWHERE! It is amazing the change in all my staff. We always had mindfulness built in, but the teachers and staff are taking it to a whole new level! Yay! Thank you!!”
