Teach Yoga & Mindfulness to Children Course

Teach Yoga & Mindfulness to Children

Our new, 2 part, training course offers greater flexibility - acknowledging that many school teachers want to learn more about yoga and mindfulness and how they can introduce it at school, but may not want to do the full 5 day vocational course. Part 2 is for those who wish to be fully certified and accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals, with a 60 hour Vocational Training Certificate, to teach yoga to children in and out of the school environment.

Part 1: 12th - 13th April 2018
Part 2: 30th May - 1st June 2018

The Course Content

Part 1 and Part 2

  • Brain development of a child aged 4-12 and how this will influence the way you teach and communicate with them
  • Anatomical development of children aged 4-12 and how this understanding will affect the yoga you teach them
  • Psychology and its impact
  • Appropriate yoga asana and pranayama
  • Mindfulness meditation and relaxation
  • Games, music and chanting
  • Behaviour management

Why 2 parts?
This 5 day course has been split into two, with the understanding that many school teachers want to learn more about yoga and mindfulness and how they can introduce it at school, but don't want to do a fully certified course.

This course is designed with a strong focus on enabling teachers to provide yoga and mindfulness in school - as an underlying element throughout the school day, to provide in short classroom lesson breaks and as part of PE. Schools are encouraged to fund their teaching staff for the benefit of the whole school's health and wellbeing.  Pupil Premium and Sports Funds are most often used.

To be fully certified and accredited by the Yoga Alliance Professionals, to teach yoga to children aged 4-12, in and out of school, you must complete parts 1 and 2. Part 1 AND 2 will give you certification, with Yoga Alliance Professionals Accreditation: 60 hours in Teaching Yoga to Children.
