Grounded Yoga Laughter Elevation is a groundbreaking training on the forefront of Kids Yoga, from 3 to 18 years old. It creates a strong foundation for a lifetime love of yoga and interconnectivity of ALL beings. It has already begun a powerful transformation in the schools where I teach and in my own family. This has been the MOST impactful yoga training of my career and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering teaching kids (of all ages), family and prenatal yoga.

I think the intensive was very informative, very well planned, and very fun. The information was presented in a non-threatening format that was relatable and easy to understand. Sedef was an awesome teacher guiding us to work with younger children and special needs students. Amy was phenomenal teaching concepts that were sometimes difficult to understand. Her style of providing examples and allowing us to develop our own examples allowed us to own our own learning and make it a part of our own lives. Cheryl did an awesome job teaching us the poses along with alternative poses. Her style of teaching allowed us to learn in a very relaxed, non-threatening environment.

Co-Founders, Cheryl Crawford and Amy Haysman are incredibly inspiring and caring individuals who offer their whole heart into the Grounded Yoga Laughter Elevation program. I have been a part of the Grounded community since November 2010, shortly after the program took flight. I have watched it flourish from a bulb into a garden of beautiful bountiful flowers. I LOVE the Grounded Yoga module trainings they offer and truly believe they prepare and ground teachers along the way. They offer the Elevator Pass, an online resource for teachers that is jam packed with helpful resources and much more. The Grounded community as a whole is like a family. Grounded teachers are always there to offer help through Grounded’s online Facebook Group page. I am extremely grateful for Amy and Cheryl as well as the entire Grounded Yoga community. Grounded is the BEST yoga training for kids out there! Sat Nam .

The Grounded Kids Yoga Teacher Training Program gave me all of the tools to work with diverse populations of kids and teens. The instruction was clear, generous and enthusiastic. The curriculum is intelligent and beyond my expectations. It is a real career builder and there is a great need for teachers who have trained with Grounded.

Grounded Kids Yoga is one of the best teacher trainings that I’ve completed. Children learn to connect their mind, heart, and body through yoga asanas, breath, chants, mudras, games, and art. The program goes into so much depth but on a fundamental level that children can connect and understand. I hope their passion for bringing this program into schools and communities continues to spread. I’m very excited to be a part of this movement. On a final note, I feel by completing this program I also improved my teaching skills for working with adults.

Grounded Kids 95 training was the perfect addition to my 200 hr YTT. Not only did I learn so much, but so many aspects of the training enhanced what I’ve already learned, giving me a fresh perspective. I am so grateful for the time, energy, dedication, knowledge and love that you have poured into the content.

I traveled from California to attend the summer intensive in Georgia in 2019. Amy was wonderful about answering all my questions over the phone and email about the training and also the logistics of getting there. I loved how this training made it accessible to teach kids real yoga beyond just the poses and also blended different styles of yoga. The intensive was well planned out and the energy and heart that Amy and Sedef brought made me feel supported and inspired throughout the two weeks. I would definitely recommend this training to anyone considering teaching kids. Not only did it make me feel prepared to teach real yoga to kids, but it was a great addition to my 200hr and 300hr trainings and I’ve brought some of the things I’ve learned through Grounded Kids into my adult classes as well.

“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.”
