I present to children in preschools, elementary schools, libraries, and bookstores. I also present to adults at Early Childhood Education conferences and to primary teachers at conferences and professional development workshops.
School Presentations are very interactive. Using The Yoga Game series we play with words and soon find ourselves hissing like snakes, growing like trees and breathing like an ocean as we guess the riddles and then try out various yoga poses.
My adult presentations are also interactive. Educators have been enthusiastically embracing The Yoga Game series as it offers a user-friendly approach to children’s yoga while playing with language (rhymes), incorporation problem solving (riddles) and supporting the new reader with repetition and visual cues.
Nature Education, Daily Physical Activity, Mindfulness, Play-Based Learning and Self-Regulation are some of the current topics in education today. The Yoga Game series offers powerful and engaging tools to explore these topics in a non-competitive fun-filled way.
School visits include audience participation as we play with words, stretch the body and tickle the mind!
Please note: All presentations are ‘hands-on’. Participants need space to move and are encouraged to experiment with yoga poses, to play with sound and enjoy the rhythm of riddles and rhymes.
- Presentations for young children – (Preschool to K) are 30 minutes
- Presentations for older children – (Primary Grades) are 30 – 60 minutes
- Workshops for teachers/childcare providers are approximately 2 hours.
