Workshop Description

This is 95 Hour Yoga Alliance accredited course. The schedule is set up in a way to fit into your busy schedule. It meets one weekend per month and does not meet in August. The key to learning how to share yoga with children is to embrace the practice with them. Children are naturally drawn to engage in any activity that is embodied by the adult who is presenting it. This is a course for anyone, (RYT yoga instructors, classroom teachers, caregivers, therapists and parents) who wishes to introduce yoga to the children in their lives. Concrete tools and practical application are presented in a simple to follow sequence. Yoga has become a wonderful way for children to exercise their creativity and imagination while simultaneously refining their ability to relax and concentrate. Yoga engages the body-mind connection, which is a critical factor in the education of children. Yoga can be part of any lifestyle, as traditionally presented, it comprises 5 basic principles: Proper Exercise, Proper breathing, Proper Relaxation, Proper Diet, Positive Thinking, and Meditation.

Flower Yoga teachers are trained and guided in a traditional, humility and service - oriented way. A deep understanding of pedagogy, child development, movement development, and sensory integration practice is at the heart of every lesson created by the teacher. Each lesson is nourished through seasonal awareness, cultural and mythical storytelling, and a practical knowledge of yoga philosophy.
