Click to Enroll


This blended training combines independent learning with two energetic, dynamic days of classroom instruction. Before the training, you will create an account with OKAY – Online Kidding Around Yoga. Here you will find the first two modules. These will prepare you for your intense, fun Two Day Live Training. With your diploma/certificate in hand, you will gain access to the remainder of the online training. This gives you the keys to use and review the massive amount of knowledge you just received in your training. It’s all yours for LIFE! That’s right. You will never lose access to OKAY.

All students are required to finish modules One and Two of the OKAY training BEFORE they can receive their certificate. This will take 5ish hours to complete. Please do this before your live training so you, too, can be in the know. It is easier for students and teachers if everyone starts on the same page. Here is a glimpse of what’s in store for you with our Sample Training.

We love early birds and even offer them a discount, however if you are unable to sign up early, no worries! We got you covered. Sign ups are accepted up until the night before the training starts. You will have to wait to receive your certificate (by email) until after you finish the first two modules, but that’s no biggie!

Haris “Harini” Lender is a certified Integral Yoga Teacher at the 500 level. She has also been certified in Prenatal, Raja, Children’s and Stress Management.

Haris has traveled throughout the world, including a 3 month N.O.L.S. (National Outdoor Leadership School) program where she climbed Mt. Kenya and lived with the Masai Warriors. She also completed a month long Outward Bound program in North Carolina. She was the president of the Outing Club at her University, owned a Laundromat-Pub after college and has had two Yoga studios of her own! Haris lives in St. Pete with her husband. All four of their kids are currently attending college. Haris spends much of her hard earned vacation time in either one of her lovely “tiny houses”. One is a yurt at the Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville in Buckingham, VA. The other is located close to Montezuma, Costa Rica. Although she didn’t know it at the time, she has spent her lifetime preparing to create this imaginative style of Yoga for kids. Growing up in the Lender family it was a common occurrence to be thrown into a skit for the family business that might have any of the kids dressed up as a penguin, sporting a plastic tushy, or singing along at a huge convention or family reunion to a silly song written by either of her creative parents.

During her 11 years of running Camp Yogaville and for the last 6 years at her own summer sleepover Yoga camp in Florida there are many opportunities to show off the skills learned along the way. Haris writes songs and skits, manages her counselors, teachers and kitchen staff, and has developed many more skills that have helped to create Kidding Around Yoga. Haris is extremely grateful to her teacher Swami Satchidananda, and to all of the Swamis, friends and teachers at Yogaville that have helped guide her over the years. She is also thankful for her parents who gave her the insanely creative ability to write songs and invent lots of fun activities for the kids, and her husband Evan who is right there by her side helping her with ALL THINGS KAY!
