““The manual is very useful. It's clear and easy to read, something I can refer to at all times. The lesson plans are useful too. They give me an idea how I can plan for my own classes. The anatomy section was very clear and easy to understand, and it makes me want to learn more about anatomy. ~ Vivian Lee, Early Childhood Educator
“I found learning the different teaching methods and practices for each age group so important. When teaching to kids, it just doesn't work trying to teach them the same way you teach to adults...everything is so different, bodies, minds, emotions, etc. so it makes sense you would teach differently." ~ Darla Ridlon, Yoga Teacher
“One of the best experiences in my life!” ~Trevor Westerlund, Yoga Teacher
“There were so many great aspects of the training: The variety of activities throughout the day, the resources - the manual is amazing, the use of different teaching strategies, the balance between practical and theoretical, the opportunities to practice teaching, the modelling of good teaching."
~ Akemi Eddy, Classroom Teacher.
“The lesson plans - actually experiencing them during the training, followed up with clear, detailed documents describing the lesson- gave me multiple opportunities to really "know" (mind) and "feel" (body, spirit) what a kids yoga class can be like. I find myself referring to Jacqueline's manual most often - easy to navigate, very convenient to carry around in e-form, grounded in research and yet practical enough for your target audience, comprehensive without being overly exhaustive, and yet offering lots of references and suggested resources for further depth. I love it!” ~ Mari Chu, Counsellor
“I would highly recommend the training to anyone....and everyone.....I really
enjoyed the course and learned so much. What an honour and pleasure it was to spend
every day in such a positive, loving environment. I found all of the resources very useful...the manual you have written is amazing! It is easy to follow, user friendly, no "extra filler"....it gets to the point, and I love the photos! After experiencing this training, I am definitely better prepared and informed on what sorts of things to do in a children's yoga class!” ~ Roxanne Sammartino, Classroom Teacher
“I would highly recommend the training to someone else. I found the whole experience life changing. Not only was it fun, but it was in a safe and loving environment that really allowed me to get more in touch with my inner child and explore my true self. I think it is a great idea to come at it from a “kid-like” perspective. There is always room for growth and always something to learn. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the work that you are doing. I am grateful that I took a chance on myself to participate in your training.”
- Kathy Kolida, Yoga Teacher
“This training has exceeded my expectations. Integrating self-care, I think, has been crucial and has given me a glimpse of how I will continue to practice this - so necessary to be a great teacher!” - Katie Lacey Classroom Teacher
“I loved this training! Such amazing ways to set up classes, explore themes, focus on strengths, and give kids the autonomy they so deserve.” - Jenelle Kildaw, Social Worker
“I thoroughly enjoyed this training. It inspired and empowered me to start a new chapter of my life. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to explore children's yoga, working with children, or wanting to get in touch with their inner child.” – Emma Kelly, Children’s Art Instructor
