Teaching Youth Yoga Toolkit - An introduction to teaching yoga to teenagers
Next course: 11th November
An introduction to teaching yoga and mindfulness to teenagers, this session covers how to plan and teach asana, pranayama, mindfulness and partner yoga safely and appropriately,. We will look at incorporating elements of yoga philosophy into sessions in a way that is accessible to young people. The session will also look at the logistics of teaching, setting up classes, safety and legislation.
What will you gain from the day? An understanding of how to structure yoga and mindfulness classes for specific groups of young people in order to meet their needs. Designed as a 'toolkit' session, you will learn an array of practices and techniques that are suitable in the classroom, youth club and yoga studio alike. The practical day will leave you confident to share what you have learned, with ongoing support if needed.
Who is the course suitable for? Open to yoga teachers and trainees, counting towards your Further Training hours with Yoga Alliance Professionals and allowing you to then teach yoga to young people. Also suitable for teachers, youth and health professionals who want to use the techniques in their own work. The session acts as an introduction to our 4 day Youth Yoga Teacher Training course. It does not qualify you as a Teen Yoga Teacher, but gives you additional skills to add to your existing qualifications.
