Yoga professional development

laLa Workshops

laLa wellness offers a series of workshops and trainings for early childhood professionals that provide easy-to-implement but incredibly powerful yoga and mindfulness based practices both for themselves and the children they care for.

Whether your classroom community needs help with emotional awareness, self-awareness, physical literacy, resilience or a positive shift in perspective, our workshops can take you from “I’ve been wanting to do this, I just haven’t been sure how” to “I’m so excited and can totally do this right away!”
