This workshop is the capstone event in the Instructor Certification Program. The course will be held at Still Moving Yoga – a beautiful garden setting with acres of woods and hiking nearby. This beautiful setting will provide the backdrop for an enriching weekend of yoga, practice teaching, reflection and acknowledgement.

We’ve designed the entire Yoga Calm Youth Instructor Certification Program to prepare you for an uplifting experience and success in bringing Yoga Calm into your classroom, therapeutic setting, studio or wherever you work with children and families. Thus, this capstone event isn't just an opportunity to further hone your new skills. It’s also a time to celebrate all you have learned!

The first night will feature a delicious meal with plenty of time to get acquainted with other Yoga Calm Certification candidates. The second day we will break into two small groups in which you’ll be asked to lead your group in a 30-minute lesson plan based on one of the five Yoga Calm principles (Stillness, Listening, Grounding, Strength, Community). Reflection, feedback and collegial sharing processes will help create a safe yet powerful learning environment.

In addition to teaching your favorite lesson plans with each other, you will have the opportunity to share and receive class plans from other candidates, and will learn how to access Yoga Calm's online library of hundreds of class plans from other certified instructors!

Wrapping up the course will be individualized feedback from your trainers, additional training, and a special session on continuing your professional development, how to develop your business and promote your Yoga Calm classes for children. You will also receive access to Yoga Calm's online membership program, including hundreds of class plans, training videos, clothing discounts and your business starter kit. Finally, we celebrate your accomplishment with a special mindful snack and community yoga class!
