Online Professional Development Workshop for School Staff

As an alternative to the On-Site Staff Professional Development Workshop facilitated in person by a Licensed Y4C Trainer, a video-based format is now available to schools in locations where a Licensed Y4C Trainer is not presently available. 

This online workshop can be completed in one full day by viewing 18 video segments (5 hours) in a group setting on a projector screen. Alternatively, week-long access can be granted to all school staff members such that they can view the video segments individually at their convenience. At the end of the viewing, the group will gather for an interactive follow-up Q&A session online with Lisa Flynn, the Founder and Director of Yoga 4 Classrooms or with another qualified Y4C Trainer.

The workshop utilizes the 230 pg, fully-illustrated and tabbed Yoga 4 Classrooms Program Manual and the Yoga 4 Classrooms Activity Card Deck, ensuring the program is both easy to use and sustainable for long-term use. These materials sets should be ordered for each classroom teacher and specialist attending the workshop. School discounts are available for orders of 20 or more materials sets.

"I was not familiar at all with any types of yoga, when I read the description that this was a yoga to benefit children in the classroom and needed no special equipment and on the floor activities I was interested. I wanted another positive avenue to use with my students. Inspiring workshop! I am so looking forward to using this relaxation, transition, exciting pump up with my children."

I can't believe how user-friendly, well-written and informative the manual is. It is so well-thought out and everything from the additional ideas for each activity to the different sequences enables teachers to differentiate and meet the needs of every child in their classroom. An amazing resource…will be used daily!
