What is the KAY School Workshop?
The Kidding Around Yoga School Workshops are a 6 hour professional development opportunity, that will provide teachers with the skills necessary to introduce yoga concepts into today’s demanding academic environment. This workshop provides various tools and guides teachers on methods to integrate yogic concepts, throughout the school day, as they pertain to Mindfulness, Behavior Issues, Stress Management, and Health Awareness, all while increasing the student’s engagement in a positive environment. The workshop includes an online review of all the material covered. Plus, free music, activities, lesson plans, and ideas for keeping the material ACCESSIBLE for all students.
- Visual/spatial learners will benefit from seeing modeled yoga poses and printed yoga graphics/charts.
- Musical learners will benefit from the use of Kidding Around Yoga original music.
- Linguistic learners will thrive on telling yoga stories, communicating emotions and verbalizing feelings.
- Logical/mathematical learners will develop their understanding of anatomy, stress management, and mathematical relationships.
- Bodily/kinesthetic learners will get to experience lots of physical activity in the classroom through role playing, hands-on learning, and use of body language.
- Interpersonal learners will have fun using their social skills to relate with their peers during class meetings and various group activities while increasing their cultural sensitivity toward others.
- Intrapersonal learners will further develop their independence by learning additional ways to set goals and achieve them, manage stress, and gain more confidence.
In addition to all of these benefits teachers will have an easier time fitting the required Health and Physical Fitness demands into the school day. This workshop will teach how to make content standards more engaging by using our methods as a conduit for learning. Our system provides enough flexibility (ha ha!) to create Yoga Mini-Lessons that serve as class meetings for character education topics tied to academic lessons. We show your teachers how to teach meditation to children.
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.
This workshop is the perfect way to introduce and integrate Mindfulness and yogic concepts into the educational environment, while providing continuity in the way the subject matter is addressed school wide.
- Songs, stories, activities, and games that can be used singularly or within a mini-lesson or class meeting.
- How 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.
- How 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 the classroom.
- As an added bonus, your teachers will gain LIFETIME access to KAY-C, our Online Yoga for the Classroom training.
