Edmonds, WA GroovyKids™ YOGA Teacher Training Level 1 and 2

For the second year in a row we're back in the Pacific Northwest, GroovyKids™ Yoga brings it's joyful, creative and full of movement program designed to get kids doing and enjoying yoga! Crafted through over 10 years of experience and countless hours with kids on the ground, we will show you what works and why, encourage you to look deeper at who you really are and play games that show us wonderful things! Then we'll break down the GroovyKids™ Yoga Flow and teach it as a free kids class. After the kids are gone, we'll apply our learning like a stencil overlaid on the theory, and see what we see! Guaranteed FUN, PRACTICAL techniques are just some of the reasons why this program is loved and taught on four continents.

GroovyKids™ Yoga Level 2 TT builds on the foundation we established with the GroovyKids™ Manifesto.

In this 10-hour program we’ll expand the poses vocabulary and cover the guidelines for sequencing poses and how they can be used endlessly creatively. We look at Education standards for physical education as created by Education boards and see how yoga fits in.

Proven breathing techniques for kids will be practiced along with a more in-depth look at how yoga has interacted in our lives to help us understand simple ways that yoga philosophy is full of universal principles and how to more consciously apply them in teaching.

We look closer at how to modify classes as the age groups change, we practice partner yoga for extra fun with kids in class and play some more games designed to enlighten and inspire.

It is obligatory, due to the unique content of the training, that the student has completed the GroovyKids™ Yoga Level 1 TT before the Level 2.

This course is ideal for anyone who loves kids, movement, yoga, learning new things or just life in general. We teach communication, philosophy and play.

Especially ideal for school teachers or educators who would like to incorporate yoga into their class time.

GroovyKids™ Yoga Teacher Training 20 hr Williamsburg, VA

In this exciting and supremely practical 20 hour certified GroovyKids™ Yoga Teacher Training you’ll learn the GroovyKids™ Yoga Flow, and you’ll actually do it too. It’s a 45-60minute complete range of motion yoga class perfect for kids of all ages and abilities including music, movement, breath awareness and meditation.

 We’ll watch a live GroovyKids™ Yoga class on film and present to you the GroovyKids™ Manifesto, or the 7 Keys to a successful GroovyKids™ Yoga class. We’ll break it down and see what works best.

We’ll add some fun games that get you to reveal your own patterns of thought. Be prepared to laugh! You’ll explore your own experiences and find your own strengths.

 We then study the class sequence and learn why, when and how to modify the sequence for almost infinite classes. You’ll see why the GroovyKids™ vision works for all kids of all abilities and cultures, from the ages of 3-12 and sometimes even a little younger.

We’ll expand the poses vocabulary and cover the guidelines for sequencing poses and how they can be used endlessly creatively. We look at Education standards for physical education as created by Education boards and see how yoga fits in.

Proven breathing techniques for kids will be practiced along with a more in-depth look at how yoga has interacted in our lives to help us understand simple ways that yoga philosophy is full of universal principles and how to more consciously apply them in teaching.

We look closer at how to modify classes as the age groups change, we practice partner yoga for extra fun with kids in class and play some more games designed to enlighten and inspire, including the “Yes, and” game, a brief exploration into positive thinking.

And then finally we put it all into practice with a free GroovyKids™ Yoga demonstration class and afterwards we’ll hold up our class against our 7 Keys, and see how we did. Then we’ll know why we teach GroovyKids™ Yoga instead of just Kids yoga.

 This course is ideal for anyone who loves kids, movement, yoga, learning new things or just life in general, and especially ideal for school teachers or educators who would like to incorporate yoga into their class time.

The course counts as 20 hours of Continuing Education Credits per Yoga Alliance standards.

Switzerland: GroovyKids® Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 & Level 2

Level 1 Teacher Training is a 10 hour course which includes a discussion about the different approaches to teaching Kids anything, the LOGIC behind each approach and it’s effectiveness in different settings, be it in a dedicated yoga studio, a school, a small group class in a private home or even individual private classes.

Level 2 GroovyKids® Yoga Teacher Training is designed for the teacher who’s already completed the Level 1 training or who has already had experience teaching kids yoga. We discuss the ways that children of different ages learn as this changes considerably between the age groups. Traditionally the age groups are split up 3-6 and 7-11, so we aim to inform the teacher how kids think differently at each age. This is important in keeping a child’s mind occupied, perhaps the main challenge in teaching kids anything.

GroovyKids is back in Japan! Level 1 Teacher Training is a 10 hour course which includes a discussion about the different approaches to teaching Kids anything, the LOGIC behind each approach and it’s effectiveness in different settings, be it in a dedicated yoga studio, a school, a small group class in a private home or even individual private classes. 

In Level 2 GroovyKids™ Yoga Teacher Training we explore ways to do that and also look at how the poses can be changed for the older age groups. Again, younger bodies and minds need different stimuli for greatest benefit so we look at ways to equip the teacher so they can be confident! We include some discussion of teaching children with special needs, we look at some interesting studies and learn from their findings. Of course, we also play games! And another in depth look at sequencing and how it can be altered to suit the needs of the class.
