What Makes Our Trainings Unique?
We focus on the therapeutic, creative approach to children’s yoga so that our trainee teachers will be inspired to create yoga classes that are a holistic experience for children of all ages and abilities. Our unique and original programme, combines yoga philosophy and practices with music, dance, art, story-telling and play. We believe that yoga philosophy is fundamental to teaching children’s yoga which is why we incorporate this into our courses by teaching YOU how to creatively teach yoga philosophy to young children and teens.
In addition, our programme incorporates key educational philosophies, the psychology and methodology of teaching so that you can understand how children learn in order to best teach them in a creative and meaningful manner!
