Good Practise – the experience of exploring children’s yoga. Children’s yoga has to be fun, co-creative, full of adventure and story-telling, it needs boundaries, and safety, and involves community and togetherness. We need to think about the difference in the ages we teach in terms of enjoyment, catching imaginations and the safety needs for growing energetic bodies.
Teaching Methodology and Structure – the building blocks of every class. Specialising yoga to the needs of kids, includes mindful moments, appropriate safe and fun asana, playing with pranayama and specialist and imaginative shavasana. We need to teach the full range of yoga asanas appropriate for each child’s age and encourage the benefits in a fun way. Includes a downloadable manual of children's yoga postures, and how they can be played with.
Anatomy and Physiology – teaching a safe class. A discovery of the flexibility of kids and teaching what’s safe. Development, adaptations, and contraindications, what’s happening throughout growth and what this means for your yoga instruction.
Encouraging Community, Collaboration, Calm and Confidence – the four C’s, working together to support and encourage each other.
Yoga philosophy, lifestyle, ethics and bringing the WOW to your class – exploring the lovely Yogic values of peace, truth, honesty, self-control, freedom, contentment, willpower, insight, surrender and love. Using story-telling and time travel to transport us to meaningful moments.
