Yoga for Children

The practice of Yoga for children is unsurpassed as a form of preventative health – health on all levels – mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. Through stories and games children develop lifelong healthy habits and are supported in blossoming into their highest potential.

Children love Yoga. They love the movement and creative expression associated with the asanas, and they cherish the opportunity to “rest” at the end of each class. Based on sound child development principles, the ancient science of Yoga is turned into fun, engaging, age appropriate stuff kids love.

What's Included?

Included in this weekend training are 3 lesson plans you can use as is. You will also learn how to modify them from a basic structure, our signature system for teaching a children's Yoga class.

LP #1: Ayurveda in Hundred Acre Wood. Let Pooh Bear and his friends teach kids about their constitution and the 5 elements.

LP #2: Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Curious how to share Yoga philosophy with children? It's all right here.

LP #3: The Great Kapok Tree. Learn how to use both books and ecology in a kids' Yoga class.

This training also includes an introduction to the benefits and specialized techniques of teaching Yoga to children ages 4 years old through teens as well as whole families. We then get to become the children and practice a class just as they do. A question and answer session follows with resources for further study. You will walk away with many tools and techniques to share with the children in your life as well as a deeper understanding of Yoga.
