Welcome to YoYo Yoga
Come play yoga! So much more than physical stretching (which certainly has its benefits), yoga teaches children valuable life skills, laying a strong foundation for kids to develop into healthy adults.
Life moves fast and can be stressful for adults – and children are no different! Busy and over-scheduled, children often feel overwhelmed and it’s vitally important for adults to provide children with the right tools to navigate life ‘s journey in a positive and empowering way. Applying the skills learned at a YoYo Yoga Professional Development Training, YOU can positively impact a child’s life.
YoYo Yoga specializes in professional development training, family wellness seminars, and the creation of valuable resources for pediatric professionals, parents and kids. Our highly unique programs teach creative and effective methods to adapt yoga-based movement, meditation and mindfulness to benefit children of all ages and abilities, in all settings – from fun family yoga sessions, to one-on-one patient support in the clinical setting, to the classroom. Beyond training, our valuable teaching resources and ongoing support allow professionals and parents to stay connected and up-to-date as they confidently use movement, meditation and mindfulness to empower the lives of a very precious resource, our children.
- Lead Trainer/Mentor All professional development trainings and family wellness seminars are led by leading pediatric yoga specialist, Lisa Roberts (ERYT-200, RCYT). Lisa has over thirteen years experience providing wellness sessions to kids in the clinical setting. From her experience working with critically ill and physically/developmentally challenged children, Lisa has become highly skilled at adapting yoga to be beneficial and accessible for all abilities, while keeping sessions fun and engaging for kids. She founded YoYo Yoga School and KAY (Kids Adaptive and Accessible Yoga), and is the author of four children’s yoga books, three guided breathing and meditation CDs for kids, and yoga flashcards to support kinesthetic learning.
- YoYo Yoga Community Upon completion of a YoYo Yoga professional development training or family wellness seminar, you will be invited to join our YoYo community – a strong and inspiring network of YOgis and YOginis committed to supporting one another in a shared mission to help kids. Our community of YoYo’s (YOgis and YOginis) are just like you, dedicated, compassionate pediatric professionals and/or parents who advocate kids’ health and wellness! Connecting via a private Facebook forum we draw on each other’s experience and knowledge to offer advice, thoughts, ideas, experiences, and support.
- CEU’s Registered yoga teachers are eligible for continuing education contact hours through Yoga Alliance. YoYo Yoga School is a registered YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Educator Provider) and RCYS (Registered Children’s Yoga School). Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) or Professional Development Points (PDP’s) may also be available through your employer, licensing board, professional association, or school. As each profession and state has its own credentialing requirements, we recommend confirming with your organization whether training hours apply toward your degree or continuing education requirements. Application for accreditation from these organizations is your responsibility and additional fees may apply.
