STAFF STREET BODHI TRAINING & IMPLEMENTATION

For schools and organizations ready to dive deep into infusing mindfulness into daily culture and practice, and really want it to stick, we offer staff training, on site coaching and support in implementation. Program costs vary, based on the size of the organization and implementation protocol, however the basic steps can include the following:

Step 1. Enroll committed staff in 108 Monkeys training
You and you and you! 108 Monkeys will work with you to enroll either all staff (for small organizations like preschools) or interested staff from a department (for large organizations like mental health clinics). We ask staff to commit to the entire training and implementation process. We can help choose the right folks for the job.
Step 2. Get Commitment from Leadership

Can your principal do headstand? That’s not necessary BUT it is recommended that at least one member of the organizations leadership  team commit to attending the training alongside staff. Growing the program from the bottom up and the top down contributes to success and sustainability.
Step 3. Complete Training with 108 Monkeys
There is no teaching without doing! All participating staff intending to teach yoga must get to this training. This is a mandatory step in being part of our outreach team. Any staff who can not make the training will not be included in the program.
Step 4. Implement Your Learning
Hit the ground running! Implement yoga and mindfulness tools, with assistance from your team, at your organization.
Step 5. Hook up with a 108 Monkeys Coach
We’ll never leave you hanging! Meet with 108 Monkeys staff during the program to continue training, share success, discuss challenges and work together to design responsive yoga programs and implement those programs.
