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.
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 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 learn a special system that you will use to create a year-long children's yoga program (that is 50+ lesson topics!)
In the Yoga for Self-Regulation: Energy Boosters module, you will learn yoga practices that help children adjust their energy level by up-regulating and energizing, to match the demands of a task or situation.
You will also learn a unique system that will help you create educational and engaging kids yoga lessons and units.
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 “the secrets” of teaching kids yoga which is very different from adult yoga. You will engage in the Purposeful Yoga Teaching exercise and explore how you can teach yoga to children vs. simply entertain them.
In the How to Lead a Successful Children’s Yoga Business module, you will learn how to transform your love and passion for teaching kids yoga 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.
You will also learn yoga heartfulness practices to help children cultivate the ability to be loving, compassionate, and empathetic.
