  • Weekend of transformational, interactive, and interdisciplinary activities with your friends, colleagues, and Yogiños Leaders;
  • Yoga and mindfulness tools and techniques especially suited for schools that support teachers and education-based professionals with behavior management and their own stress-related challenges, as well as students with focus, stress and anxiety management, problem-solving and decision making, social interactions, and self-esteem
  • Yoga and mindfulness tools adapted to promote self-regulation and co-regulation in any environment with emphasis on youth working in chairs or at desk

  • Conceive, design and teach an OHMazing® theme-based Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® kids yoga class especially designed for use in a variety of school settings
  • Practice and teach all 8 Limbs of Yoga, including poses (asana), breathing (pranayama), focus (dharana), and mindful meditation (dhyana), and also develop a language to share the benefits with other professionals
  • Understand and use age-appropriate and safe forms of yoga, including games and related activities, to engage kids physically, emotionally, and mentally
  • Modify lessons for various academic disciplines, age groups and school contexts
  • Learn, practice and weave multiple languages and intelligences, and other learning strategies and styles, into your yoga for kids class
  • Use evidence-based mindfulness and yoga in schools as a means to teach strategies and techniques to empower audiences to disrupt habitual, socially-constructed responses and neural pathways toward responding with clear presence and awareness

Trainings come with:

    • MOSST 8-week On-Demand curriculum (1 level per training)
    • Comprehensive e-curriculum manual for each module
    • Bilingual A-Z Yoga and Mindfulness Cards (downloadable PDF)
    • Access to mostly original, bilingual music
    • Increased chances for hiring as we expand into libraries and schools
