About the Programme 

19-21 & 23 July 2019

9:00am to 6:00pm daily

  

This Children’s Yoga Teacher Training is facilitated in a practical, interactive, educational, creative, fun, inspiring and dynamic format. It is an invitation to immerse yourself in the world of children’s yoga for 4 whole days. You will have the opportunity to re-connect with your inner child through dance, play, creativity, laughter, song, remembering just how great joy feels!

This training is created from a system of comprehensive modules, and explores the major areas of yogic tools and practices. The modules are relevant and age appropriate, and are delivered in a format of direct experience, balanced with practical theory and discussions. The training is designed to meet the unique needs of each individual attendee. It recognises the importance of being able to digest knowledge and skills in a supportive learning environment that enables experience and grounded knowledge. My intention is to make YOU feel practically equipped, inspired and ready to teach - joyful and confidently bursting to share creative classes that captivate, engage and inspire this wonderful age group.
