We believe that yoga is a vital practice for children that supports and enhances physical development and cognitive skills and also helps children to deal with their emotions in a world which can often places extreme demands on them.
triyoga is proud to offer this teacher training with one of the foremost children’s yoga teachers in the UK. The course will cover teaching children from ages 2 – 3 ½, 4 – 6, 7 – 9 and 10 – 14. Learn how to teach interactive classes based on yoga asana, combined with games and movement to develop co-ordination, creative expression and motor skills.
The course is structured into clear separate sections and will provide students of the training with the necessary skills to teach yoga to children. School teachers will also learn how to integrate aspects of the training into regular classroom time as appropriate.
