Children's Yoga Teacher Training Course


Children's Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga as an after-school club activity in schools is increasingly attracting interest within school staff and parents alike. Through Yoga, children are given an opportunity to express themselves in a physical and fun but precise and gentle way as well as practise mind-body techniques to tune in to their emotions. It is also a unique non-competitive physical activity that all children can equally take part in.

You will be embarking on a 4-day Teacher Training Course (2 x 1.5 Day over 2 consecutive weekends) with the aims to be fully qualified to teach Children Yoga in Schools within weeks of completing your Teacher Training course. You will be given the opportunity to practice your teaching skills in the training room and at home (coursework) as well as observe real classes in the studio or in a local school. We encourage you to start teaching as soon as your training course is completed.

Course Details

Children's Yoga Teacher Training Objectives

This course will give you a full understanding of how to successfully structure a 45 mins Yoga class to children of 4-11 years old.

Each section of the lesson plans will be reviewed and practised in the training room so that you understand how to best make use of them in your own style.

You will learn about children development stages and learning skills, schools expectations and how to build lesson plans, sequence Yoga poses in a fun and beneficial way and teach relaxation and breathing techniques.

What's more, you will be observing Yoga lessons taught in a real class environment by your course leader. You will be fully confident to deliver tried and tested lesson plans by the time you are certified.
