Check out Becky’s blog: What it’s really like sharing yoga with young people
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.
Sharing Yoga with Kids & Young People is grounded in Nourish’s values of joyful, inclusive & person-centred teaching. We will consider how kids’ yoga can honour the roots of yoga whilst sharing with young people in a accessible and engaging way.
This course can be taken by any teacher wishing to improve their skills in this area as Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The course runs over 3 days from 17-19 September 2021, and combines theory, practice and skills development. It specifically looks at sharing yoga with 3-13 year olds.
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 two sessions and a recorded session can be provided for the missed modules only at no further cost. If you need to miss the final session, 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.
All sessions are delivered online via Zoom. Once the course has finished you will be given access to all recordings for 3 months.
You will be provided with a reading packet prior to the course commencing.
