The key to learning how to share yoga with children is to embrace the practice WITH them.
Children are naturally drawn to engage in any activity that is embodied by the adult who is presenting it.
This course is offered to anyone (teachers, parents, caregivers, therapists…) who wishes to introduce and practice yoga with the children in their lives. Concrete tools and practical application are presented in a simple to follow sequence.
Yoga can be part of any lifestyle, as traditionally presented, it comprises 5 basic principles: Proper Exercise, Proper breathing, Proper Relaxation, Proper Diet, Positive Thinking and Meditation.
The content of the course reflects these simple aspects and demonstrates how to offer this wellness practice in an age-appropriate and appealing style for children, youth, teens and families.
Flower Yoga teachers are trained and guided in a traditional, humility and service – oriented way. A deep understanding of education pedagogy, child development, movement development and sensory integration practice is at the heart of every lesson created by the teacher. Each lesson is nourished through seasonal awareness, cultural and mythical storytelling and a practical knowledge of yoga philosophy.
If you are teacher, parent, caregiver, or a child professional in any other field, you will be presented with a Flower Yoga Certificate upon completion of course requirements. You will be able to conduct your own programs and classes for children ages 2-11, Youth/Teens ages 12-17 and Family Yoga.
If you are a RYT 200/500 and would like to become a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT) through the National Yoga Alliance, you will receive a Flower Yoga Certification after completion of course requirements.
