About Inamojo

Our initial program is for children 5-8 years old.

We are currently developing additional programs for children both younger (pre-school and kindergarten) and older (8-11 years old)

In an inamojo class, children have magical stories read to them (stories with important life-lessons subtly woven through them); they get to ’embody’ the characters in the story in a music-and-movement session; and they create an artwork to express their personal feelings about the story.

This combination of auditory, somatic and creative experiences leads to much deeper, more engaged and long-lasting learning.

At the beginning and end of each class, the children are taught (and get to practice) various techniques such as breath-awareness, mindfulness, and belly-breathing, to help with emotional self-regulation and relaxation.

No, these classes are for children only.

But the good news is, there is an adult equivalent to inamojo. It’s called Chakradance, and you can learn more about it here.

Inamojo classes are designed to be run for around 40-60 minutes, however we also have options for 30 minutes sessions that can be particularly helpful to integrate into the school curriculum.

No. Inamojo is deliberately designed to be inclusive and non-denominational.

We highly recommend that children experience the same series a number of times.

Repetition enables children to garner a deeper learning and understanding of the concepts and wellbeing tools they are taught in these classes.

About the Training

No. While we welcome people who are children’s educators, the training is open to parents, coaches, yoga teachers, healers, healthcare workers, grandparents… anyone with a passion to to make a different to the lives of children through a powerful holistic movement modality.

That’s up to you. On successful completion of the training, you will be invited to take out a Licence as an Accredited Inamojo Facilitator, but you will be running your own small business, setting your own goals, rates, hours of work etc.

School settings will vary depending on the size, etc of classes. In other settings, working with smaller groups, fess range between $20-30 per class. Individual sessions are recommended between $70 – $100 per session. Rates and other business management is covered in training.

You’d need to check with your local authority. There are thousands of Continuing Education credit schemes, and they are all different all around the world. 

The fact that we are IICT-accredited helps in many cases, but some authorities only give Credits in respect of trainings operated by providers who have paid to be on their own list, and we are not able to do that.

We offer a payment plan of 4  payments over the course of the 8 week training. At this stage we don’t offer an extended payment plan.

No. Because we are all in different time-zones around the world, there are no set times that you need to join online classes, etc.

Everything is available for you to download whenever suits you, and you are free to do the work each week at whatever times suit your own schedule.

However, we do encourage you to join the private training group on Facebook and become an active member to get the most out of your training.

We charge an annual Licence Fee (currently $300 per year) for your use of the inamojo™ brand and programs.

This fee also covers your use of our comprehensive, and regularly-updated, toolkit of resources, plus ongoing help and support from us, your listing on our website and your membership of the private Facilitators Circle on Facebook.

When we introduce additional programs for you to run, this will be at additional cost but we aim to keep costs as supportive to our facilitators as possible.

Other costs (not from us) will include getting ‘working-with-children’ clearance from your local authorities, first-aid certification if you don’t have that already, and Professional Liability Insurance.

Depending on where you’ll be working, you may need to purchase a good portable sound-system, and possibly cushions or yoga-mats for the children to sit on.

Costs on a per-class basis will include art materials (paper and crayons) and whatever you choose to pay your assistant, if that role is not being supplied by the school or organisation you are working in (when working with children, we highly recommend that you have an assistant working with you).

On successful completion of this training, you will be entitled to take out a Licence as an Accredited Inamojo Facilitator.

The Licence covers our commitments to each other. In a nutshell:

We licence you to use our brand, and run our programs for children, in accordance with the training.

We commit to treating you fairly at all times, to help and support you as best we can, and to include you on our website.

You commit to running the programs as trained, using the approved materials, NOT changing them or hybridising them.

You also commit to respecting and protecting the children in your classes, and not saying or doing anything that might bring inamojo into disrepute.

PLEASE NOTE: When you sign up for inamojo™ Facilitator training, you are purchasing licensed materials and resources of high quality and high value, as well as our time, expertise and energy in supporting you through the training.

We do not, therefore, offer refunds. 

We have trainees and facilitators all over the world. So we choose to price in USD as that’s the currency that most people around the world most easily understand.

If yours is a different currency, exchange rates fluctuate from day to day, but you can easily run a Google search for today’s exchange rate between USD and your currency.

In any case, although the prices on this site show in USD, you will be charged (by either your card-issuer or PayPal) the equivalent amount in your own currency.
