We believe it is an honor to teach kids yoga and offer TOP NOTCH trainings that will also enrich your life as a yogi! We’re all about structure: getting it (classroom management, lesson plans and curriculum development, cultivating how to hold space for youth) and freedom (the utter joy of yoga, health and happiness!)
OM Schooled is special because it was formed out of hundreds of classes in NYC public schools over many years (5-7 classes a day in school, 5 days a week!) The daily in-and-out experience of teaching, with the need for lesson plans, lots of tools, an understanding of working with different developmental stages and learning styles all came into play EVERY day. Out of this teaching bootcamp, the training and book were formed.
Trainings are held several times a year in New York City, Los Angeles and occasionally other cities (watch this space!) Online courses are also available so you can learn no matter where you are.
What To Expect:
We believe in educating the whole child, body, mind and spirit, with All of yoga. Take a deep breath!
If you are a yoga teacher, this course will help you direct and share your yoga with purpose. You’ll learn how to translate yoga into age-appropriate goodness.
If you are a school teacher, this course will help bring peace to your day. You’ll learn to incorporate mindfulness into the classroom. Yoga is for every child and is a low-cost, accessible addition to any school.
If you are a parent, learn how to share mindfulness, health and plant seeds of wellness in your children early on.
If you are a therapist, learn how to bring tools of yoga, the mind-body connection and emotional literacy into your practice with youth.
There are no pre-requisites for OM Schooled other than a desire to teach kids, and a love and appreciation for yoga.
