PoserKids Educator Training I
PoserKids Educator Training I
February 16–18, 2017 Friday 4:00–7:00pm • Saturday and Sunday 12:30–7:00pm
This training is designed for anyone that wishes to bring a structured mindfulness program based on stretching, breathing, meditation and creative arts to their children and families. The PoserKids Mindful Movement program integrates yoga movement with mindfulness practices in a creative, fresh, real and genuine way unlike any other youth wellness program. Our style of Edutainment is easy to integrate into any classroom or living room and our program makes yoga truly accessible and inclusive of any child, anytime, anywhere.
Our level I Educator Training is a 15-hour course that will empower participants to learn & implement the PoserKids yoga sequence while providing best practices around lesson planning, classroom management and the infusion of creative style and flair to make mind-ful movement a valued part of your community of children and families. Participants will partake in guided yoga and meditation practice, instruction and discussion of yoga, clinical and early childhood development tenants of our program, lesson planning/class design, some written coursework, plus practice teaching and evaluation. We even provide a “kids yoga biz starter kit” for those wanting to teach classes at schools and studios as a full-time or part-time business endeavor in their community.
PoserKids is a comprehensive program that integrates physical fitness with language, music, art and humor all predicated on putting our core values, the Poser Promises, into action in our daily lives: to listen, be respectful do our best and have fun in all that we do, each and every day. That’s the yoga we teach: a way of being, a better way to live our lives.
Studies have shown, including clinical studies PoserKids has and will continue to be involved with directly, that yoga improves the behavior children, reduces stress, lessens disciplinary issues, increases self-esteem and self-control. Our trainings also deliver the same benefits to the grown-ups that become involved with our PoserKids community via this training. Training participants will learn techniques to promote self-health, relaxation, inner fulfillment and coping mechanisms while reducing stress and anxiety, strategy and tactics that will be shared with your children. PoserKids encourages teamwork and compassion, enhances flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness, improves concentration and focus while encouraging the use of imagination rather than impulse, learning to manage the reactivity of the modern digital era and develop interpersonal skills.
PoserKids is very passionate about making yoga more accessible to children with special needs and is currently heavily involved through grants and strategic partnerships in the healthcare arena to develop specialized adaptive curriculum, content and training.
PoserKids supports Educator Training alumni with content throughout the school year including PoserKids Vids on YouTube, PoserKids Books on Amazon, PoserKids Music on iTunes, PoserPads yoga mats, plus PoserKids apparel and merchandise all year long. We provide access to continuing education in the form of additional trainings, a certification program, webinars, special events and access to the entire global PoserKids community of educators and parents, plus so much more to ensure that you are always supported in sharing our unique style of Edutainment and Mindful Movement with your community.
