How This Training Started
After years of teaching people how to share Yoga with children in a way that is safe, effective and fun many of you came back to us and said:
“HELP! Many kids are coming to my group Yoga classes with “special needs”. The word is out that Yoga can not only help children feel calm and confident, but it can also help a child with sensory processing, it can help with anxious feelings, it can help with erratic behavior, it can help with low moods and other conditions from autism to Down syndrome to obesity."
Parents were bringing their children to Yoga classes (smart move on the parents part) and our trained teachers wanted to help. Teachers felt they needed additional training to meet the needs of this diverse group of children...and we're here to help.
Yoga teachers comprise about 30% of those who attend our trainings. Others are parents, educators and pediatric professionals. All appreciate the advanced methods learned in this training.
