In the How To Introduce Yoga to Children Module, you will learn how to introduce yoga to children in a fun and engaging way to assist them with their everyday needs in school and at home.
You will be able to demonstrate and teach the three core yoga practices, which we will be using throughout the whole training: yoga poses, breathing and guided meditation.
In the Yoga for Self-Regulation module, you will learn yoga practices designed to down-regulate, calm and ground to help children relax and bring their energy level to alert calmness and release stress. You will also learn yoga practices that help children adjust their energy level by up-regulating and energizing, to match the demands of a task or situation.
In the Yoga for Social & Emotional Well-Being module, you will learn yoga practices for being aware of one's feelings and techniques to manage them for emotional stability and balance. You will also learn yoga practices to “open the heart” and help children cultivate the ability to be loving, compassionate, empathetic and be able to act in a socially acceptable way.
In this module, you will learn anatomical and physiological changes of child development and how they affect the application of yoga practices. You will gain knowledge of energetic anatomy and physiology in relation to a children's yoga practice. You will learn an age appropriate way to introduce the concepts of chakras, nadis and koshas to children and use them in children's yoga classes. You will be introduced to the basics of Auyrveda and how to use these knowledge in your children's yoga classes. Safe and ethical teaching practices and adjustment techniques will be addressed as well.
You will learn children’s yoga practices such as asanas, asana-based movement, breathing techniques, visualization and yoga-inspired games, metaphors, art and chanting to help with focus, concentration and learning. You will develop the skill to shift one’s attention and sustain it by using yoga practices, which is necessary for learning and retaining information.
In this module, you will learn “the secrets” of teaching a children’s yoga class which is very different from an adult class. You will engage in the Purposeful Yoga Teaching exercise and explore how you can teach yoga to children vs. simply entertain them. You will learn a special system that you will use to create lesson plans, yoga educational units and plan a full year calendar with 50+ lesson plan topics to cover an entire year of teaching.
In the How to Establish and Run a Successful Children’s Yoga Business module, you will learn how to transform your love and passion for teaching yoga to children into a sustainable and profitable business. You will apply the yoga science of Dharma (life purpose) and Sankalpa (setting intentions) to identify your “in my zone” type of work and achieve your personal and professional goals. Using yoga ethics of Yamas and Niyamas (dos and don’ts) you will learn how to create a “feel good” business and serve & earn with knowledge, confidence and joy.
After completing all the Modules of the Yoga Break for Children™ Yoga Alliance accredited 95-hour Teacher Training you will:
