Kidding Around Yoga- Dealing with Religious Issues Webinar

April 16, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$10

Tired of having to “defend” the Science of Yoga, its techniques, ideas and benefits to a few non-believers? Sadly this is going to be a constant challenge for us Kids Yoga teachers. The bottom line is that there is NO place for religion in a KAY class unless you are specifically asked to do so in a particular environment.

That being said it doesn’t hurt to learn a little about where Yoga REALLY comes from, why Sanskrit became a part of it and how we can offer these teachings in a modern society, and sometimes, a close-minded one.

Join Momma KAY and her special guest, Reverend Sumati Steinberg, as we discuss:
A little background on Hinduism. One G-d? Many G-ds? What is Sanskrit?
Common core values shared between all religions. Remember, “Truth is one, Paths are many”!
The best responses for you as a KAY teacher to the most common concerns and how to “meet them on their level”.
Adaptations for KAY games and activities if you need or want to offer a “Hindu free” class.
What to do if all else fails.
In addition, enjoy some diversity quotes from all of the great religious masters as well as more sample letters to parents and schools who express concern.
