Grab yourself a piece of KAY-C! Kidding Around Yoga in the Classroom has finally arrived. The educational system seems to be in a constant state of change. The curriculum is shifting, the teaching is rigorous, and the kids are wound-up tight. Teachers are in their chosen career because they love kids and believe in education but let’s face it, they generally aren’t supported, appreciated, or valued in ways they should be. Consciously teaching mindfulness, meditation, and movement will improve any classroom climate, which increases productive academic time. Research, testimonials, and even supreme courts are agreeing that yoga has a place in schools, and this is how we can start.
Kidding Around Yoga has methods that are aligned to Common Core Standards, character education topics as seen in Guidance Curriculums, and can count toward the mandated Structured Physical Activity total of 150 minutes per week. It provides enough flexibility (ha ha!) to create Yoga Mini Lessons that can serve as class meetings for guidance lessons/character education topics, bring Readers Theater activities to life during reading lessons, make math concepts more personal and concrete and bring word problems to life. It teaches meditation, focus, and concentration, which serves as a foundation for all other academics to rest upon.
This program is for all teachers… anyone who wants to introduce yoga in the classroom. Our training is based on the wildly popular Kidding Around Yoga style of kids yoga and fits seamlessly into your class outline. However, you do not need to be a certified KAY instructor to benefit from these techniques!
KAY-C is a 5-7 hour training that you can do in the comfort of your home.
