Increase your phonological awareness and gain confidence in the use of this powerful brain-based instructional technique.

About this event

Workshop Overview

Color Vowel® Yoga is a collection of simple hand and arm movements that parallel the movement of the jaw, lips, and tongue when producing the vowel sounds of English. These movements serve as physical anchors for producing sounds that the learner may not yet be able to perceive.

This Level 2 workshop is open to Level 1 certified teachers or teachers currently enrolled in a Level 1 Color Vowel Basics course.

Workshop Objectives

In this practice-based workshop, participants increase their own phonological awareness as they gain confidence in leading Vowel Yoga and learn when to use Vowel Yoga as an instructional intervention.

Workshop Schedule

This course meets on Saturdays from 9-10:30 am ET (New York time) online with the following weekly themes:

  • Week 1 - The Yoga of non-moving vowels
  • Week 2 - The Tai Chi of moving and r-controlled vowels
  • Week 3 - The Zen of Vocalic R, Dark L, and other curiosities
  • Week 4 - Synthesis

All sessions occur online through Zoom, are recorded, and are posted in a private YouTube playlist for those who have to miss part or all of a session. The workshop is designed for live interaction. Contact us at if you have questions.

Curriculum and Materials

As a participant in this course, you will need to refer to the Color Vowel Chart in its poster-size format, positioned so that you can model Vowel Yoga movements with the Chart appearing behind you. To order a Color Vowel Chart poster, please visit our Shop.

We refer to The Color Vowel Approach (book), The Color Vowel Chart (graphic), and Blue Canoe (our AI-powered, Color Vowel-infused app) in all of our courses and workshops.


Following each weekly session, participants are assigned a small number of performance-based tasks designed to simulate video based teaching or tutoring.


Upon completion of this course, participants will receive a Level 2 Workshop Certificate reflecting 6 hours of instruction. This course fulfills one of multiple requirements of Level 2 certification.
