Yoga For Children
The Budding Yogis three-day, 20-hour teacher training will impart our unique philosophy of teaching kids yoga and mindfulness in a way that stretches their imaginations, offers them non-competitive opportunities to play, and teaches kids and teenagers how to relax.
Participants will gain detailed information about how to teach kids' yoga classes, how to create theme-based yoga classes, and how to teach self-calming and meditation techniques. Throughout the three-day program, participants will learn kids' yoga poses and yoga games; gain a clear understanding of the age-breakouts for classes; and learn ways to deal with various behaviors, including special needs.
We will learn by doing, by experiencing kids' yoga classes and by discussing what works well with kids. Each student will have an opportunity to plan, observe or co-teach a kids' yoga class on the last day of the workshop. We will also discuss what it takes to get started teaching and/or start-up a kids' yoga business.
A Budding Yogis level one certificate will be given to each participant if all sessions and the practice teaching session are successfully attended.
