Power Pack Feedback from our online trainings:
This has been such a beautiful experience. I feel it has added so much to the way I approach teaching yoga. All of the information given helped to gain a clear understanding on how to create an authentic atmosphere necessary for not only grounded kids but all forms of yoga. Even online everything was super interactive and helpful. The resources provided are supportive of the entire process. I think this is a great set up and I defiantly recommend the training. One of the best online trainings I have done.
I have taken about 10 online trainings over the course of 6 months and THIS training has been the best. Thank you !
This training is incredible. The time that was put into making Grounded is outstanding. I am a Virgo and I am impressed. The two of you are the dynamic duo! The manuals, cards, yogavator, etc… is just brilliant- it is well thought out and articulated.
This training helped me to professionalize the practice of my teaching. I was so elated by how Amy and Sedef’s presenting skills came through strongly in a digital environment. It didn’t feel reduced or less-than; I felt like we were gathered strongly as a team. I felt the yoga magic uniting us and flowing freely in Amy’s gentle, funny presentation style and amongst the group.
Sedef taught me to slow down and expect more of preschoolers. I often had felt I should entertain and occupy–but I see now that our littlest ones can learn about the honor and stillness of yoga if I shift my attitude and presentation slightly.
This was the first time I learned that I could actually forge a working relationship with Grounded through Amy and Sedef. That means a lot to me. This felt less transactional (before, you were some ladies who invented GK and lived in Georgia) and more personal, connected, supportive. I do want to keep in touch, stay involved, and draw upon your support to spread this offering. I think there’s something about working with the founders of the organization; the meaning translates more deeply and I began to understand what GK is *really* all about.
I learned a lot about having a yoga business from two very successful entrepreneurs; this influence impacted me. I learned I can offer yoga as a business without being unethical or participating in something I dislike. I learned it isn’t consumeristic or transactional in this situation; it’s love and energy. I get it and I’m excited to more forward with confidence and knowledge.
I learned a lot more in this training than I have before about the meaningful aspects of our yoga poses. I was moved by Amy’s discussion that kids’ yoga isn’t just about having “fun” but that it is deep, serious business and needs to be treated with care, love, respect, and honor. I am moved now to take much more time to emphasize each pose, repeat poses more (with the breath), slow down and *teach* more, and embrace the spiritual aspect of our work even when it is presented in a secular way. I am beginning to understand more deeply, through this training and my own self-education, how to use language that is inclusive to all individuals and all belief systems.
Power Pack Feedback from last summer’s intensive:
“Loving, safe and secure learning environment with phenomenal instructors!”
“I felt included, heard and respected throughout. The attention spent on incorporating heart values was awesome.”
“Squeezing 4 actual kids classes into 2 weeks-wow!”
“The information about how to include all populations was useful and inspiring-and not only inclusive but finding ways to benefit and help all groups in a sensitive way that empowers and respects.”
“The lesson plans are really cool and I’m way excited about it.”
“Going through this process I have grown as an individual and as a teacher. The training has been filled with very relevant knowledge, and through group activities and discussions, I have become very connected with the other teachers. Thank you for providing a space that’s comfortable to express ideas, thoughts and emotions.”
“You guys have a positive environment to learn in.”
“You guys gave me some things I can use for a lifetime to keep myself grounded.”
“I think the real life experience teaching yoga allowed me to be confident teaching it now on my own at my school.”
“The intensive was very informative and very well planned. The information was presented in a non-threatening format that was relatable and easy to understand.”
“I learned so much about yoga, my body, children, and how to teach them. The flow of the training was good and the instructors are very knowledgable and informative. I enjoyed this experience. Thanks for this life gift.”
“One Sunday in May when I was taking a Kundalini yoga class I overheard a discussion between the yoga teacher and other students about an upcoming Grounded kids teacher training. It got my attention when I heard that one section of the training covers Special needs kids & teens. I thought the learning may be helpful to my own nephew who has different abilities. I decided to take the training regardless of not being a school teacher nor a yoga teacher.
What an amazing and life changing journey it has been during the 10 days attending a Grounded Kids Teacher Training Intensive.
The training covered 4 steps of topics such as “ground yourself in children yoga, pre-grounded, special needs and teens, refine your teaching, and celebrate your elevation.” After each lectures we had group discussions and activities relevant to each topics. The training provides a complete reading materials, hand outs with photos of poses with explanations and much more to keep for future references. We were given an opportunity to practice our own teaching yoga to kids both at a studio with kids and their families and at a daycare center which was very helpful.
This training demonstrated how to unite the kids mind and body with yoga movements and fun activities.
I give thanks to the great teachers, Amy Haysman and Sedef Altikulac Dion from Grounded kids for sharing there knowledge and practices.”
