Testimonials: What people say after taking this training...
Thank you for putting on an amazing training session. I really enjoyed this training. I love learning how to properly teach yoga to the children in different ways. I really liked how it related to my own life and the lives of the children as well. I like how there were many resources to look at to get some ideas, also meeting new people to bounce ideas off of, and to and finding out what ages they work with and how they would implement in their programs.

Big thanks again to Laura and the rest of the class! I had a great weekend and can’t wait to incorporate more mindfulness into my life. Cassandra
This was an amazing experience. Learned so much but especially how to bring yoga into everyday life not just yoga classes. Games, songs, meditation stories. Absolutely recommend it to those working with children...Laura showed us how to use resources we had and where to find other resources. Cindy
Laura was excellent, her curriculum was enlightening and engaging, the environment was lovely and comfortable, and I came away being able to readily develop multiple creative and age-appropriate yoga practices for the children with whom I work. Heidi
