Kids Training. Step 1 in NJ May 2017 and NYC November 2017!!
Newark Yoga Movement held it’s first Kids Foundation Training in 2010. It was one of the first all-inclusive trainings in the country--Yoga teachers, physical education teachers, teachers, social workers, psychologists and volunteers. We've done it annually ever since.
We're huge fans of Grounded and highly recommend it. Below you'll find the training schedule for February through May, 2017. There are four steps in all happening in New Jersey. Steps 2 and 4 are being taught by Newark Yoga Movement guide and certified Grounded Teacher, Ruth Meagher and certified Grounded Teacher, BobbiJo Ringe. at the beautiful Yoga Mechanics in Montclair. Training overview and sign up is on the Grounded website. Additionally, trainees get to teach in a Newark Public School as part of the training. Note all, you can take Step 2 before Step 1 if you are going for 95 hours.
Step 3 is being guided by Grounded Trainer Felicia Ruth and Grounded co-founder, Cheryl Crawford an educator, yoga guide, mom of college triplets and Debby's (NYM founder) pal will surely pop in. Our partnership partnership deepened in 2013 with the formation of Atlanta Yoga Movement, founded by Cheryl and modeled after Newark Yoga Movement. 40% of your training fee for this training is a direct donation to Newark Yoga Movement o while you are gaining valuable tools and learnings, you can know that 40% of your dollars are going directly to help children.
Cheryl and Amy Haysman, grounded's other co-founder, recommend that all people interested in children take at least Step 1 22-hour Training Module. These are offered in NJ in May 2017 (taught by Felicia) and NYC at Golden Bridge Yoga in November 2017 (taught by Cheryl) These trainings teach everyone about connecting with children in interesting ways, and importantly, teach everyone a bit more about themselves. It also includes “real life experience” of teaching Yoga in classrooms and/or PE classes in Newark schools. See website for every single detail and expectations for each Training Step.
