sharing yoga with kids & young people

In today’s world, young people are just as prone to feeling the stresses and strains of modern day life as the adults around them.

With this in mind, kids’ yoga is becoming a more and more important resource. By sharing yoga with kids, we can offer young people a tool-box bursting full of practical skills they can take out into their lives. We will learn to create spaces where young people feel strong, brave and able to be themselves.

This course has been designed as an introduction to sharing yoga with kids and young people. It will get you thinking about how you can use your existing skills as a yoga teacher to share creative, safe and fun classes with young people.

Course Outline

This course can be taken by any teacher wishing to improve their skills in this area as Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The course will run as five weekly sessions of three hours, and combine theory, practice and skills development.

There are limited spaces available. As this course focuses on preparing you to share yoga with kids and young people, live attendance is required. You are able to miss one session and a recorded session can be provided for the missed module only at no further cost. If you need to miss the final week, which includes a teaching practice and feedback session, a catch up session may be be provided at the trainer’s discretion, and will incur an extra charge.

All classes are run by experienced teacher and trainer Becky Varey.
