In House PD Workshops

It’s a great idea to have all staff attend the same training, for team-bonding and to create a fun, supportive ‘culture’ of storytelling with yoga. We have had outstanding feedback every time, not only about the ease of implementation of the content, but also about positive team bonding and a renewed feeling of excitement within centres as a result. For feedback, see here.

Hosting a PD Workshop:

  • If you have 2-6 staff wishing to participate, you may host in exchange for two gratis trainings and up to four additional teachers attending with a 30% discount. (Note that manual costs still need to be covered for free attendees, at cost price $25) You would need to be able to provide a large, pleasant, squarish space so we can seat up to 18 (or 20 for 3hr PD)  participants on yoga mats in a circle, with edges of mats overlapping in community ‘child-style’! 
  • You may wish to host teachers from other local centres/schools and share costs.
  • Keen to host? Please fill out the form here and we will be in touch asap!

Note that we also offer a 10% discount for 3 or more attendees booking together (one payment) on our regular open trainings and 20% savings for 6+ attendees!
