|Teaching Yoga to Children|
This course offers a comprehensive training, giving students the skills and confidence to teach yoga to children.
The course is run as two separate modules. There are homework assignments and group teaching assessments for both modules. A teaching certificate will be issued on successful completion of both modules and assignments but a certificate of attendance will be issued to students who opt for just one module.
This module looks at the physical, emotional and psychological development of children between the ages of 2½ to 7. It explores how to adapt asanas for children and ways to introduce simple breathing and relaxation techniques. Students will learn how to use stories, music, themes and play to teach yoga to this age group. Appropriate language and class management techniques will be taught.
This module is run over a weekend from 9.30 – 5.00 on both days.
There is approximately 12 hours of homework assignments to complete and a practical assessment.
