Children are natural yogis. They love to move, play, stretch their bodies and minds, and feel strong, in a safe, relaxing environment. Teaching children requires knowledge, patience, and a big bag of tricks. It’s not easy to keep their attention and interest, all while maintaining control.

Let us fill your toolbox with techniques for addressing varied needs, ages, and levels of skill, in school, group or private classes, or at home.

Research shows that yoga improves:

  • Self-awareness and self-regulation
  • Symptoms of trauma and stress
  • Social/emotional learning and empathy
  • Executive function, learning readiness, and critical thinking

The Course

This course offers the opportunity to deepen your understanding of the practice and teaching of Yoga. The course includes all aspects of Yoga teaching: asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy, anatomy, and physiology. It encompasses the historical background of Yoga, the study of the Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, and Sanskrit terminology. The eight limbs of Yoga - Ashtanga - are studied extensively, with emphasis on Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation.

We cover 101 primary asanas in the various categories: standing, balancing, inverted, forward bending, back bending, lateral flexion, and rotation. You will learn how to help the student find the proper alignment, when and how to touch, how to string asanas together in a flow - Vinyasa - and how to breathe during the asanas. Special emphasis will be placed on the therapeutic application of posture for pain relief and structural alignment. You will study the mechanics of the various joints of the body, with special emphasis on the spine.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You will learn anatomical terminology, the skeletal bones and muscles, how muscles work, the process of respiration, the role of the nervous system, and energetic anatomy, including the Chakras. We explore how the cosmic force manifests in each of the 7 centers and their influence in the personality and awareness of the individual. We examine the sheaths of the body and the role of pranayama in posture and meditation, with emphasis on the principle pranayamas: Kapalabhati, Nadi Shodhana, Ujjayi, and Bhastrika.
