The opportunity to take this training online, while I am staying home due to COVID-19, has been my lifeline. As a mother of two, and a Montessori Elementary teacher, I have been juggling being the available parent to my children while also serving my students from a distance. So much feels beyond my control, and each day, there is an endless list left unfinished. There are times during the day that I feel overwhelmed, and I allow myself to sneak away and complete a short Imagination Yoga training video. It feels so good to have that time for myself, where I am accomplishing something, and finishing it! I have loved every minute of this experience, and I definitely see myself pursuing further yoga training in the future. Thank you so much, Jamie and Jessie, for all that you do, and for connecting me to this deeper level of guiding children. This training has irreversibly impacted my work as a Montessori Guide, and in my role as a parent!

It's hard to say enough about how great this course is! For me, the best and most important thing was, that I was very prepared after this course to bring Imagination Yoga to my class. Because of the video submissions and the feed back and the thorough instruction, I could present these activities to my class in a way that they ask for again and again! Honestly, they ask to do yoga so much, I almost don't want to do it as much as they do! But of course I do it every time they ask. :) I love that I can tailor these IY adventures to any class, and on any given day, whether the kids are full of energy or maybe tired and lacking focus. These adventures, or just simple poses, always give the kids what they need. Breathing, calming, focus, energy, whatever. I am so happy I did this course, for the great adventure, for my teacher "tool box", and for the physical health and mental wellbeing of me and my students. Bravo!

Imagination Yoga

Welcome to Imagination Yoga’s online learning site. We wanted to take a quick moment to introduce ourselves and welcome you to Imagination Yoga. We are Jamie Dix and Jessica McClintic: sisters, business partners, and women who are profoundly grateful to get to do this as our job and walk this path together. What an honor it is to have the opportunity to offer Imagination Yoga online as a vehicle to bring kids yoga poses, benefits, and activities to a larger audience… to YOU! These online trainings are a reflection of years of trial and error to see what works, what doesn’t and what is going to be the most effective and fun way to inspire movement, creativity, calm, concentration and kindness to kids of all ages. As classroom teachers and parents we have not only taught the concepts included in these videos as a part of our own classroom curriculum, but also to our own children at home. So, welcome to this site, welcome to Imagination Yoga, and welcome to the profoundly effective world of kids yoga. With much love and gratitude, Jamie Dix and Jessica McClintic.
