2020 National Kids Yoga Conference

April 17 - April 19

This is an amazing, meaningful gift opportunity for you and your loved ones. Please read on!

Do you know a public or private school teacher? What about a teen who is looking for a way to work with kids? How about a yoga teacher?

We are excited to tell you that this year Mind the Mat is partnering with YoKid.org for the National Kids Yoga Conference to be held in Alexandria, Virginia at Jefferson Houston Public School on April 17-19, 2020.

This year’s conference is geared towards training public/private school teachers, with a particular focus on Alexandria and Arlington teachers, how to skillfully bring yoga, including mindfulness and body awareness, into public schools. So many studies show our kids need to be moving more in order to be learning ready.

In addition, at the conference, yoga instructors can receive an in-depth training on how to teach yoga to kids, which can translate into classes in many venues including after school programs, recreation centers and yoga studios. CEU credits are available for already yoga teachers already registered with Yoga Alliance.

Your donation to the scholarship fund would be so much appreciated! You can donate in the name of another person if you would like. All donations will go to scholarships for public/private school teachers and teens who are interested in teaching yoga to kids (there is a teacher training track just for teens at the conference!). You donation will enable these individuals to attend the conference.

This is a great holiday gift idea! If there is a specific teacher or teen you would like to sponsor to attend the conference, please contact conference@yokid.org with your request after making the donation. Conference tickets begin at $195 (see website for details to decide how much to donate for your specific individual).

In addition, if you or someone you love would like to attend the conference as a Mind the Mat client you can register with the discount code LocalDC and receive at 10% discount off tuition.
