YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE AN EMAIL FROM US ABOUT YOUR TRAINING. ALL THE INFO YOU NEED CONCERNING YOUR TRAINING IS HERE IN THIS WELCOME LETTER.
General InformationThis blended training combines independent learning with two energetic, dynamic days of classroom instruction. Before the training, you will create an account with OKAY - Online Kidding Around Yoga. Here you will find the first two modules. These will prepare you for your intense, fun Two Day Live Training. With your diploma/certificate in hand, you will gain access to the remainder of the online training. This gives you the keys to use and review the massive amount of knowledge you just received in your training. It’s all yours for LIFE! That's right. You will never lose access to OKAY.
All students are required to finish modules One and Two of the OKAY training BEFORE they can receive their certificate. This will take 5ish hours to complete. Please do this before your live training so you, too, can be in the know. It is easier for students and teachers if everyone starts on the same page. Here is a glimpse of what's in store for you with our Sample Training.
We love early birds and even offer them a discount, however if you are unable to sign up early, no worries! We got you covered. Sign ups are accepted up until the night before the training starts. You will have to wait to receive your certificate (by email) until after you finish the first two modules, but that's no biggie!
You do NOT need prior Yoga teacher trainings to attend KAY trainings. Kidding Around Yoga is designed for anyone who loves to work with kids. With KAY, you can start your own kid-centered Yoga business, enrich your adult classes, bring something special to your academic classroom, or even introduce your own family to the benefits and joys of Yoga. This training can enhance your career and change your life and the lives of all of those beautiful young yogis in your future. Just ask our grads!
Your fee gives you access to two exciting days of hands on instruction covering breathing practices, meditation, deep relaxation, asanas, games, activities, arts and crafts, business and marketing, and so much more. And just when you think there can't possibly be anything more, check it out. You also receive a link to a huge catalog of original Kidding Around Yoga Music. Incorporating Yoga poses and fun cardio activities, this music takes any kids class up a notch. Kids love Kidding Around Yoga, and so will you!
