Youth deserve the BEST yoga teachers, offering classes that are both joyful and rigorous, educational and fun. ����We deeply respect the tradition of yoga and the wisdom and openness of youth.
We believe it is an honor to teach kids and teens yoga and offer TOP NOTCH trainings that will also enrich your life as a yogi! We’re all about structure: getting it (classroom management, lesson plans and curriculum development, cultivating how to hold space for youth) and freedom (the utter joy of yoga, health and happiness!)
OM Schooled is special because it was formed out of hundreds of classes in NYC public schools over many years (5-7 classes a day in school, 5 days a week!) The daily in-and-out experience of teaching, with the need for lesson plans, lots of tools, an understanding of working with different developmental stages and learning styles all came into play EVERY day. Out of this teaching bootcamp, the training and book were formed.
Trainings are held several times a year in New York City, California and occasionally in PA, FL, Boston, Washington, DC. ����������Online courses are also available so you can learn no matter where you are.
Kids Teacher Training: focuses on ages 4-12
Teen Teacher Training: focuses on ages 13-19
