Resources are a Great Fit
"Your resources are a great fit. I want the students to learn strength in their bodies and mind—and experience what it feels like to be calm. I can do this by providing tools, games, and techniques. I’m so excited to build a strong yoga program at my school!"
"My takeaway (from the KYS School Ambassador Program) is that we’re not doing the yoga activities “to” them, but rather we are participating in the activities “with” them. I also never thought of teaching mindfulness through sensory activities. I can see that empowering the teachers because they are probably already doing a lot of mindfulness activities without realizing it!"
Bringing Intentionality to What We Do
"My takeaway (from the KYS School Ambassador Program) is that I’m already doing all these yoga and mindfulness activities, but now I need to bring the intentionality behind what we do. It will help me be present with the children. I feel more confident going forward, and now I have a workable plan!"
This LIVE virtual exclusive get-it-done bootcamp was designed so that you walk away with a clear action plan to bring yoga and mindfulness to your school.
Each day has been thoughtfully structured to deliver content that addresses the concerns and challenges of teachers, parents, and school staff when bringing yoga and mindfulness to schools. We will provide proven strategies to overcome these obstacles. We also weave practices and exercises into each day so you get first-hand experience with movement, breathing exercises, and mindfulness. And the best part—we have plenty of time to roll up your sleeves each day and get your plan done!
Our intention is for you to walk away from this bootcamp with a well-thought-out, easy-to-implement classroom or school yoga plan that fits the needs of your school population.
Welcome and introductions will be covered. We will also spend this time preparing for the next three weeks, getting to know one another, and setting expectations.
This session will cover the basics of teaching yoga and mindfulness and why you want to bring yoga to your school. We will consider timing, scheduling, educational standards, space, supplies, and structure. We will discuss the constraints of bringing yoga to your school and brainstorm solutions to get buy-in from peers, administrators, teachers, and students.
This session will cover the behavioral challenges that arise when teaching children mindfulness and yoga and which strategies can increase engagement, manage disruptions, and get buy-in. We will discuss a variety of methods to get financial backing for your school yoga program and brainstorm ideas that will make the most sense for you. We will also begin to dive into building your program.
In this session, we will review sample plans of other school programs and hear success stories from teachers who have had success introducing their programs. We will spend time refining our individual programs in small groups and do a final review and recap of the bootcamp.
In this call, we will cover how to make your school program effective, including surveys, qualitative/quantitative research, case studies, and testimonials. You will learn the best techniques to ask parents, kids, teachers, and other school staff for this information. We will also address any lingering questions you and other participants might have before launching the program.
You Have a Life Long Customer
"Oh my gosh! You are amazing! Thank you so much. The kids have had such a good time so far with our new program and these will be wonderful to add. You have a life long customer!”
I Absolutely Love This
"I struggle to explain it (yoga and mindfulness) and sometimes get push back as to what it is, what it represents.
I cant wait to use this with the class I am in as well as, our school to explain it in a way that makes it an important part of everyone's day."
- Anna H.
"I am reorganizing my curriculum to embrace more mindfulness and yoga for kids practice - your stories are brilliant and the cards wonderful. I thank you as an educator in the profession for over 40+ years. I have a bag of tricks - with favorite teacher resources and you are now among the most esteemed."
- Laura S.

Definitely not! We hear this all the time, and this concern is one of the main barriers for teachers to get started. Please don’t let this stop you from bringing the benefits of yoga and mindfulness to children.
In fact, we have created a bonus course, Yoga and Mindfulness 101, that will help you begin to explore and develop your own practice. And working on your own practice is baked into every bootcamp session! Each day, we will be doing movement, breathing, and energy exercises.
Absolutely! Feel free to reach out to giselle @ kidsyogastories . com and our team will set you up with an exploratory call with Giselle. She will be able to answer any questions you might have and address any concerns.
We will be using Zoom for the bootcamp. Thankfully, over the last year, many people have used Zoom and are comfortable with this technology. If you have concerns, please reach out directly. We will be having a pre-call that will also work out any kinks people may have with getting logged in.
Yes, each session will be recorded and the recording will be available within the private course area. Only those who are attending this bootcamp will have access to the recordings. We respect your need for privacy. If you prefer, you can choose not to be on camera during the bootcamp. Since the break-out rooms are not recorded you are welcome to turn your camera on to connect better with your breakout group.
We certainly understand that things come up. If you’re unable to make a day, you can watch the recorded session, do the assignments and homework, and catch up with us on the following session. You will still get everything you need even if you miss a session.
Yes, of course. We have scheduled breaks throughout the day, including a lunch break, so you can grab a snack or beverage and use the restroom.
