"This is a life changing course…if you have any interest in helping the youth of today become balanced adults of tomorrow do this course!!!!! DC Samantha Hare (May 2011)"

TeenYoga works closely with the Psychology Department of Leeds University to measure outcomes of yoga and mindfulness practises in the teen population. It also works with Callington Road Hospital in Bristol measuring outcomes of work with suicidal young people. Results are posted on the research page of TeenYoga.

We are the only worldwide Yoga Alliance accredited training for Teens.

"I looked for the best course out there, and found this one, (Dave 2014)"

It is taught in many schools across the country both as part of the curriculum and as an after school activity funded by The National Lottery. Mindfulness has particularly seen a huge growth in recent years as the research in the field has proved without a doubt that mindfulness increases well being.

Charlotta is an inspiration to yoga teachers around the world… Having attended one of her Teacher TRaining courses in Dubai made me understand more her cause of helping teenagers through trauma release. Charlotta’s vision of equipping teenagers with the tools & skills to help themselves & others, will guarantee them a better future. Natalia (Dubai 2013)

Words can’t explain what an amazing course you have put together!! You opened a whole new fascinating world to me and for that I am truly grateful!! I will highly recommend to anyone to take Teenyoga course with you.

The TeenYoga course is structured to enable you to teach yoga and mindfulness to 11-18 yr olds in a school environment, although what you will learn here will also enable you to teach in other setting. It has been constructed with the help of specialist adolescent Neuroscientists, Anatomists, Psychologists and Yoga Teachers. It is now taught in several continents across the globe.

Charlotta Martinus launched this course for the first time in 2007 in response to the growing need to care for our young people and give them respite from stress and anxiety.

This course is unique, as the only fully fledged, Yoga Alliance accredited and insured teenyoga course in the UK and it is also unique in its focus on scientific research and actual experiential research to help support and structure the training.

The course comes with a detailed and comprehensive manual, with plenty of practical class structures for you to use. In this manual you will find a detailed list of the benefits of yoga and a list of suitable postures for this particular age group, targeting specific issues. There is a special section on behaviour management.


Espanol – Bienvenido!
¿Cómo motivamos a los adolescentes? Su aparente desinterés frecuentemente constituye un obstáculo tan fuerte que parece imposible hacer otra cosa que esperar que pasen la dicha “edad del pavo”. Pero tal vez así les hacemos un flaco favor. La adolescencia es una época tan clave para el desarrollo de la persona que es vital apoyarles en este momento de su vida.

La investigación, principalmente en la India, Estados Unidos y más recientemente Inglaterra, indica que el uso del yoga en las escuelas ayuda mucho al individuo en la época de la adolescencia a controlar su ansiedad, y alcanzar el equilibrio para así desarrollar mejor sus capacidades. Se han visto beneficios con grupos de todo tipo incluido por ejemplo los alumnos con depresión, déficit de atención, la obesidad e importantes mejoras en las funciones ejecutivas en alumnos de toda la gama de habilidades académicas.

Ahora por primera vez en España entre 28/3 y 4/4 2015 en el pueblo de Orgiva en las Alpujarras, TeenYoga ofrece un curso único diseñado para preparar personas con experiencia en el yoga para traer el yoga a los centros escolares y comunicar sus valores y beneficios a este grupo tan fascinante: los adolescentes. El curso está acreditado por el Yoga Alliance del Reino Unido.

La profesora del curso, Charlotta Martinus, lleva desde 2004 en la formación en la enseñanza de yoga a los adolescentes, además de sus actividades de investigación con la Universidad de Leeds, y de terapia de yoga con el Servicio Nacional de Salud del Reino Unido. El curso tiene un enfoque diverso que abarca no solamente las posturas del yoga, y los ejercicios de relajación y respiración más apropiados para los adolescentes, sino también aspectos relacionados con la comunicación, y los beneficios neurológicos y fisiológicos de la práctica del yoga para las personas de estas edades.

En el curso contamos no sólo con un ambiente especial de paz en las Alpujarras de Granada, apropiado para la práctica del yoga, sino también con la presencia de un grupo de adolescentes que nos acompañaran para participar como alumnos en las sesiones de práctica y también aportar su perspectiva para prepararnos mejor para el trabajo directo con adolescentes.

‘Este curso te cambiará la vida…si tiene algún interés en ayudar a los jóvenes de hoy a convertirse en adultos equilibrados mañana, haz este curso.”
Comisario Samantha Hare, Policia Metropolitana de Londres
