Module 1: Gentle Beginnings, Foundations & Family

22-26 September (Wednesday – Sunday)

 

**45 Contact Hours / 2 Non-Contact Hours via Reading Assignment


The seeds we plant in our bodies and minds at an early age create the potential for a happy, healthy and joyful life. In our busy world we are experiencing children as young as preschool age being impacted by the effects of stress. Evidence-based research shows us the value and health benefits of sharing the tools of yoga and mindfulness to support this precious age.

‘Gentle beginnings, foundations & family’, is an invitation to YOU to reconnect to your inner-child and immerse yourself in 5 whole days as you step into the world of children’s yoga and mindfulness. Learn to nurture and nourish, connect and inspire children and their families through mindful movement, dance, simple breath awareness, creativity, mindfulness activities and practices, games, laughter and song whilst remembering just how great JOY feels. The training is crafted with the perfect balance of both theory and practice facilitated in an interactive, educational, fun and dynamic format. The comprehensive modules are relevant and age-appropriate, exploring the tools that children and their families grow to love and benefit from. Family yoga and special events for parent and child continue to gain popularity as stress levels rise, family time lessens, and quality time becomes precious. This is a unique opportunity to bring all ages together to share laughter, movement, bonding, connection and play whilst reminding us all of what truly matters in our lives.

It is my heartfelt intention to enable YOU to feel practically equipped, confident and ready to teach. As you embark on your journey of teaching our ‘youngest yogis’, I cannot wait to guide you to discover a bursting tool bag that will both captivate and engage the whole family.

Module 2: Blossoming Tweenies & Tuning into Teens

(Teaching Yoga & Mindfulness to ages 9-12 and 13-18)

28 September – 2 October (Tuesday – Saturday)


**45 Contact Hours / 3 Non-Contact Hours via Reading Assignment

Our fabulous preteens and teens are the special population that need and benefit from yoga and mindfulness the most. It is a delicate and tender time in their lives largely influenced by the huge changes taking place both internally and externally.

This training provides a solid foundation of practical knowledge and relevant skills to enable YOU to inspire, engage, empower and support this fabulous and diverse age group. Comprised of a system of comprehensive modules designed to explore age-appropriate yogic and mindfulness tools, the training is facilitated through a balance of theory and embodied knowledge in a fun, creative, informative and interactive format.

I am both passionate and motivated to guide this special population to confidently use the tools, skills and practices, to feel their benefits and take them ‘off the mat’ and implement them in their daily lives. By being better equipped and prepared, students can begin to manage increasing school stress and pressure, support themselves when feeling worried, anxious or depressed, and practise self-regulation to help navigate difficult emotions as and when they arise. It is essential for them to be aware of sustainable coping mechanisms and tools that help to build emotional resilience, instil positive mental health, and promote physical well-being. Additionally, this aids in the gentle and gradual development of an internal place of refuge, stillness and sense of stability that can help to support stress.

This is deeply rewarding work where demonstrating genuine authenticity, humility and compassion matter. These qualities help to gain trust, confidence and respect at a vulnerable time in their lives and are the key to our success in this role. On a less serious note, what keeps them coming back to the mat each week is our ability to be creative, engaging and ‘FUN’, whilst reminding them of the true value of both ‘PLAY’ and time out in their busy and demanding lives.

2. You shall not participate in any of the physical activities on the Training Course whilst suffering from any infections or contagious illnesses, diseases or other ailments including but not limited to open cuts, abrasions, open sores or minor infections, where there is any risk that such use or participation in such conditions may be detrimental to the health, safety, comfort or physical conditions of other participants in the Training Course; you will bring any such matters to the attention of staff of PURE if in any doubt.

3. If you are pregnant, under medication and/or suffering from or having suffered from any medical disability you are strongly advised to seek the advice of a qualified medical practitioner before commencing any of the physical activities available on the Training Course.

4. No person who is under the influence of drugs or of alcohol is permitted on the Training Course.

5. You acknowledge and voluntarily assume (i) your responsibility to assess your level of fitness and general health (including where appropriate consulting your physician or doctor) and (ii) the risks of serious injury that are associated with physical activity of any kind including any variety of yoga, meditation and breath work practice and participation in yoga related activities or activities related to the Training Course (collectively the "Activities") including those off studio or PURE Facilities premises. You confirm that you shall retain all control and direction over your Activities at all times.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, PURE, its related corporations and their respective servants, agents, employees and officers (collectively referred to in this Clause 2 as the "PURE Entities") shall not be liable for any loss or damage to property or in respect of any bodily injuries, illness or death of you, howsoever caused, aggravated or incurred arising out of or in any way connected with your participation in the Training Course and other services.

Will I be able to teach right after I graduate from this programme?
Yes. All the course materials taught in this course prepare students with all the foundational knowledge and skills needed to become yoga teachers. Some students take it to deepen their own personal practice, kick-start a life transformational experience, while others do it to immediately start a teaching career. Others who do not want to proceed into teaching immediately would immerse into further trainings. More than half of the students from our graduate programmes begin teaching friends, family, moving into part-time teaching in studios and then full-time teaching.

How do I become a RCYT (Registered Children Yoga Teacher)?
To receive the Yoga Alliance USA RCYT specialty designation and accreditation, you will first need to be RYT200. However, a 200-Hour RYT training can be done either prior to or after the training. On completion of the additional requirements of 30 hours of teaching practice and with the full 95-hour certificate, you can then use the simple automated process that is done via the Yoga Alliance website. Once your information has been logged and the certificate uploaded, your lead trainer will be contacted by email to approve your request. Each individual student is responsible for this process and, on approval, will be able to add the RCYT designation to their credentials.

I teach children but have never done yoga before. Can I still join the course?
It is recommended that you have a minimum of one year’s yoga practice prior to joining. This is encouraged as it enables you to have a basic understanding of the foundational poses and terms and maximises your overall learning experience.

Do I need to attend the modules in order and take both?
The modules can be taken alone and in any order that is convenient for your schedule. However, they do follow the developmental progression from our smallest yogis through to teens, so it can also be beneficial to study them sequentially. If you are drawn to teach a particular age group, then feel free to choose the module specific to this area of interest.

Do we get to practise-teach with children during the training?
We will have special public community classes for students to both observe and practise-teach. You can bring your own children and are encouraged to ask friends who may like to participate as well.

If I need to miss a session, will I be able to make up for it?
Students enrolled in this programme must be fully committed and understand that full attendance is required. If there is a need to miss any sessions, it will be decided on a case-by-case basis. Please indicate any of such requests during application.

Will I receive a certificate after the programme?
Upon successful completion of the programme and following the Code of Conduct – students will receive a Certificate of Completion (Yoga Alliance Accredited) from PURE Yoga for this teacher training programme.

What I have learnt from you is your passion, patience, love and understanding to our young generations. Teaching children is not only a job, it’s a mission. Without having any expectation on this teacher training and I hesitated to enrol because online training is something very new to me. And now, at the end of it, I am totally mind-blown.

I had thought teens would be much more like adult yoga, but Karen had crafted a special curriculum to address teens specific needs, making yoga fun and applicable for their hectic lives. She is a gem and if you have the opportunity to learn from this amazing soul, it is a gift you should quickly explore!
Carrie, Yoga Student – Hong Kong 2017

This is the second module I have done with Karen – she is full of passion and enthusiasm for teaching pre-teens and shares her knowledge in a generous and professional manner. Every aspect of teaching this age group is considered and we had lots of active practice.

Parents and teachers should have more understanding of this kind of knowledge to help our own children to grow up more healthily.

Irene, Yoga Student – Shanghai 2017

If you want to teach children yoga - you HAVE TO attend Karen’s workshop. I went with a blank mind - never seen nor heard how a kids yoga class is conducted. After her workshop, I am so fired up and confident I wish I can get hold of some kids and start teaching right away.
Catherine, Yoga Student – Singapore 2017

The trainees themselves were humbled by the transformative nature of the workshop, which held a mirror to Karen’s facilitation style – grounded in empathy, creativity and reflexivity – and empowered to use these highly impactful skills and knowledge to hold space for teens as they transition through important life stages.
Lucy, School Teacher – Hong Kong 2017

Your workshop is one of the most impactful training I ever have, to me as a future children’s yoga teacher, and to my daughter as a more understanding parent.
Clarence, Yoga Teacher – Hong Kong 2016

Karen's Children Yoga Teacher Training is definitely one of the best you could ever find and it is worth every penny you pay. It is not only the useful teaching materials that you get but the laughter and friendships you can encounter through this training will all be unforgettable
Priscilla, Yoga Teacher – Hong Kong 2016

As a Kindergarten teacher, I know I will be utilising all the acquired knowledge and skills - the sky’s the limit! You have not only spread knowledge but also a meaningful joy, love and compassion for yourself and others, in the children’s world, which holds our future!
Uma, Kindergarten Teacher – Hong Kong 2016

It was such a fun-filled, light-hearted workshop to guide our young children to a place of calm and quiet, where they can feel safe, and begin to experience a sense of ownership of one's feelings and emotions.
