Announcing a new page on the OMazing Kids Blog: Trainings, Online Trainings & Webinars about Kids Wellness, Mindfulness and Relaxation

It is a list of all the great kids wellness (including yoga), mindfulness & relaxation trainings, online trainings & webinars I have personally attended or completed. I’m sure this list will continually be a “work-in-progress” since I love to learn new things!

  • Each training is unique & there are things I love about each one. While I won’t pick a “fave”, I can provide suggestions about a one  that may be best suited for your needs. Feel free to e-mail those questions to amoorad1@juno.com.
  • I am listing them in categories & in alphabetical order within that category.
  • I have included a link to the blog post if I reviewed that training so you can see more details there.
  • I am only listing trainings, online trainings & webinars that I have personally attended or completed so please don’t be offended if I left your favorite one off the list.
  • Trainers/presenters can e-mail me at amoorad1@juno.com with inquiries to review their trainings, online trainings or webinars.

New: Research Roundup on the OMazing Kids Blog

Announcing a new feature on the OMazing Kids Blog: “Research Roundup”.

https://omazingkidsllc.com/research-roundup/

This page is dedicated to sharing research & articles relating to kids wellness, including yoga, with a focus on Autism and other special needs.

Articles are listed in order of publication dates with most recent publications listed first.

When available, I am sharing links to full research articles rather than just the “abstract”.  Advocates and practitioners are cautioned to read more that just an “abstract” in order to understand research study results because abstracts rarely mention any limitations to the study, they report only key findings, and the brevity of the paragraph (typically 120 words) may tend to provide an overly optimistic read of the study and what was found. For more info about reading & understanding research articles: http://www.uky.edu/CRVAW/files/Understanding%20Scientific%20Journal%20Articles.pdf & http://www.womenshealthapta.org/pdfs/HowToResearchArticle.pdf

It includes a full PDF of the latest research on yoga for kids with Autism:

Efficacy of the Get Ready to Learn Yoga Program Among Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: a Pretest-Posttest Control Group Design

By Kristie Patten Koenig, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Anne Buckley-Reen, OTR/L, RYT & Satvika Garg, MS, OTR/L, Published in The American Journal of Occupational Therapy, September/October 2012, Volume 66, Number 5

Abstract: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22917120

New: Connection Corner on the OMazing Kids Blog

Announcing a new feature on the OMazing Kids Blog: “Connection Corner”.

https://omazingkidsllc.com/connection-corner/

The “Connection Corner” page will list therapists (SLP. OT, PT, Psychologists, Social Workers, Special Education Teachers, Nurses, etc…) and other Adapted Yoga Specialists who do kids yoga/kids wellness, their website or blog & social media sites. It’s fairly easy to find other kids yoga teachers but from my experience it is much more difficult to find folks doing adapted yoga & other therapists who incorporate yoga into their work.

Folks are listed in alphabetical order by first name. This is a free listing for the purpose of helping folks connect with each other and share ideas.

I’m NOT listing e-mail addresses at this point since I’m concerned about spammers or hackers then using that info to send e-mails that look like they are from me or one of the other folks on the list.

Feel free to e-mail me at amoorad1@juno.com if you would like to be added, deleted or your info needs to be updated :)

Updated: Yoga for Kids and Teens in Oklahoma – Resource List

Click here for the UPDATED resource list (PDF): Yoga for Kids and Teens in Oklahoma – Resource List

I compiled this resource list of folks offering yoga classes/groups for kids & teens in Oklahoma based on what I could find online & through e-mail and Facebook correspondence. It is a work in progress so please let me know if you would like information added, removed or updated.  If I have overlooked someone who is doing yoga with kids and/or teens please let me know so I can get them added to the list.

Just in case you are wondering why I put together this resource list…..

1. We have kids & teens who benefit from yoga in my OMazing Kids Yoga groups at the JD McCarty Center in Norman, Oklahoma. Kids come to the center from all over the state and I have been looking for places to refer families to when their child discharges from the JD McCarty Center.

2. It will be nice to be able to network and collaborate with other folks doing yoga for kids & teens here in Oklahoma.

Thanks for all the OMazing things you each do for kids & teens in Oklahoma!
