SCHOOL Kids Yoga & Mindfulness Teacher Training 

REVOLUTIONIZE YOUR CLASSROOM

SCHOOL Kids Yoga & Mindfulness methods are tested across 16 years of direct experience in Los Angeles Unified School District, New York Department of Education and more districts for effectiveness.

The expertise of the SCHOOL philosophy and methods impart mindfulness in relatable ways to:

  1. Improve attention-regulation and motivation to learn
  2. Reduce aggression by strengthening impulse control
  3. Cultivate positive social and emotional behavior
  4. Promote collaborative learning environments

By engaging the entire classroom, SCHOOL Kids Yoga methods enhance the joy of learning in both students and teachers.

IS SCHOOL KIDS YOGA RIGHT FOR ME?

We train public and private school educators by giving them simple tools to help enhance listening, focus, and cooperation within their classrooms. Our SCHOOL Kids Yoga & Mindfulness Teacher Training is well-designed, practical, and coherent. Educators also learn mindfulness methods to promote their own well-being and the dignity of teaching.

All are warmly welcome. No prior yoga experience is required.

IS SCHOOL KIDS YOGA RIGHT FOR MY STUDENTS?

Our methods are suited for elementary-aged children with modifications for middle and high school youth.

WHY SHOULD I USE THE SCHOOL KIDS YOGA METHODOLOGY IN MY CLASSROOM?

  • Focus for the Digital Age: We are in an era of endless distractions. Regulating attention and emotions has become an increasingly important classroom management technique—and SCHOOL offers just that.
  • Spreading Calmness and Kindness: SCHOOL methods articulate the necessity to spread calmness and kindness, crucial ingredients for emotional intelligence.
  • The Mind/Body Connection: A recent study of yoga and mindfulness interventions (Meiklejohn et al., 2012) has shown results in increased sense of well-being and teaching self-efficacy, as well as improved ability to manage classroom behavior and establish and maintain supportive relationships with students.
