Full Description

Our Children’s Yoga Teacher Training provides all the tools, techniques and inspiration that teachers will need to develop their own individual, creative lessons to share with children of all ages and abilities. We are focused on providing a holistic environment for children, combining elements of musical mantras, interactive story-telling, art, nature, movement and dance, group discussions and play to explore the principles and practices of yoga and mindfulness.

Our approach incorporates elements of the educational philosophies of Reggio Emilia’s Hundred Languages of Children and Howard Gardener’s Multiple Intelligences because we understand, value and support each child’s individual learning style. Furthermore, our approach regards the environment as a key component of the education process, therefore, we place emphasis on providing a safe, nurturing, holistic environment in which we give children time and space to explore yoga and mindfulness.

We have a maximum of 12 students on each of our trainings to enable full support and attention for each individual.

The syllabus:
• Techniques and activities to introduce asana, breath-work, mindfulness and meditation to children aged 3-16 years old
• Educational Philosophy and Yoga
• Yoga philosophy, principles and practices
• Yoga therapy
• Incorporating art, music, dance, drama, story-telling and nature into children’s yoga
• Yoga and Special Needs
• Yoga and children with English as an additional language

Who is the training for?
Anyone with an interest in sharing yoga and mindfulness with children and teens within an educational, social, healthcare or home environment. We require students of the Divine Light Yoga Teacher Training to have a minimum of 18 months experience working with children or a qualification in education or health care.
