Positive and Playful Behaviour Management Strategies in the Yoga Space
Laura shares an abundance of her 19-years worth of tried-tested-and-perfected, highly practical, easily-implemented positive and playful behaviour management strategies to ensure that you eliminate disruptions and distractions, remain in control of your classes and create positive behaviour, empowering children to make healthy, positive choices in the class and in their lives.
After implementing the techniques from this workshop, you will see rapid results in children's behaviour. You will transform chaotic, hyper-active, disengaged, disruptive behaviour to quiet, focused, respectful and kind behaviour, whilst simultaneously increasing children’s confidence, self-worth and social skills and you'll feel a real sense of ease and joy whilst teaching your kids yoga classes.
Yin and Yoga Nidra to Release Stress and Anxiety in Teens
Yoga Nidra is an advanced and powerful guided meditation technique, shared with Laura during her studies in India, which can be used to support children and teens (and adults) during every day difficult experiences and overwhelming emotions.
Alongside this powerful meditation technique, you will learn essential Yin and restorative techniques to incorporate into your teen yoga classes, to ensure that you fully support their physical, mental and emotional well-being.
If you know that you want to help and empower Teens through experiences of anxiety, stress, over-stimulation, loss, grief, low self-esteem, anger management, forgiveness, self-worth, sleep disorders, de-motivation or lethargy, Yin and Yoga Nidra are essential techniques to master.

The Business of Kids Yoga (Getting into schools and leading large-scale classes)
In addition to learning about playful pricing and promotion to expand your kids yoga community, Laura will share her specific 5-step formula to creating a unique trial class/demo class /audition class which will instantly get parents and schools to commit to your kids yoga classes and workshops, making those trial classes and interviews a place where you can thrive and prosper, feeling 100% easier and more manageable.
