2017 KAHPERD Convention Preconference sessions

We have two pre-convention workshops planned for you to consider. PLYOGA workshop is 9-5 on October 25, 2017 at Seaman High School and the PYFP workshop will be held from 1-5 on October 25, 2017 at Seaman High School.

 PLYOGA® Teacher Certification PLYOGA® is a 4-part high intensity interval training system using accelerated and fundamental Yoga as a fluent and active recovery for Plyometric movements. PLYOGA® uniquely focuses on utilizing all exercise planes evenly. PLYOGA® is an equipment free format that caters to every participant through balance, agility, power and endurance work. It allows each person to shine in their comfort zone while pushing them to excel where challenges present themselves. This workshop is a full-day event that will give you a complete understanding of the PLYOGA® proprietary format. You will also leave with comprehensive options for bringing PLYOGA® to your physical education environment and teaching it to your students. The PLYOGA® class format caters perfectly to physical education, lining up with key standards and trends in functional fitness (with options for both 45-minute periods and 90-minute blocks). The full day certification also comes complete with 20 days of elective unit planning and a PLYOGA® manual. Optional collateral like recorded workouts featuring PLYOGA® Founder Stephanie Lauren (to use with students) will be available at the event. This workshop has a fee $200 for the training.  Follow this link https://www.plyogafitness.com/product-page/plyoga-physical-education-cert to sign up.

 Fitness testing is about so much more than the test. The Presidential Youth Fitness Program helps teachers by providing tools to teach fitness concepts, assess fitness and understand results, plan for improvement and/or maintenance of fitness levels for their students and help them to understand how to be fit and active for life. KAHPERD has nine teachers from around the state who are certified PYFP trainers. They have conducted five workshops so far with incredible results and feedback from participants. This pre-convention PYFP workshop will give teachers the tools and activities to elevate the fitness education strategies that they currently have in place or introduce it into their curriculum if they are just beginning their career. Each participant will receive a PYFP Kit at the end of the workshop. This workshop is free to members.
