*Online Training takes approximately 2-2.5 hours to complete. All staff will use ONE USERNAME & ONE PASSWORD which is the username & password created upon purchase. Many schools/preschools organise all particpants to complete the training together in one room. This encourages discussion and practice & better learning.
*We recommend that the following equipment be available on training day so participants can practice the exercises together
yoga mats(3); 3 balls; 1 yoga ball, 2 x sets of 1kg wrist weights (or temporarily substitute with 2 x 1 kg bags of sugar) 3 round wobble air cushions; a PE bench (or skipping rope if balance beam or bench not available- this is for balance practice)
