Self-Care for Children
Teaching children to care for themselves is one of the cornerstones of children's yoga.
We must imagine a time when we teachers are no longer there for them, but our teachings can remain. Whether due to changes of age, moving to a new area, or lack of funding, you will not always be there to help care for and check in on your kiddos.
Self-care or a lack thereof impacts all areas of a child’s life. From academia to getting along with family and friends, to creating and maintaining a positive self-image, self-care is critical. A lack of self-care results in strained relationships, negative behavior outcomes, slipping academic performance, and a lack of self-love.
That is why we must teach self-care.
Self-care is made up of:
- journaling/tracking (optional, but effective)
- caring for relationships
- managing schedules
- relationships with technology
Let's do a deep dive into each of the above topics to learn practical, everyday self-care we can share with the children in our lives.
Through this class, we will look at different areas of self-care and how we can make the most of it with our busy schedules. We will explore areas such as:
- Pro-social activities
- Time Management
- Daily routines
By developing a self-care routine, both adults and children will:
- Increase awareness (and connection to) our bodies
- Develop love and gratitude for yourself and your body
- Form a healthy relationship with ourselves
- Improve time and stress management
- Increase confidence in yourself
- Lead a healthier lifestyle
This training is perfect for educators, yoga teachers, counselors, therapists, parents, or anyone who works with children.
What you get:
You get "My Body" Lesson Plan, which comes with a teacher manual, pose index, and student workbook, a $60 value for free!
Because teaching children’s yoga is much more than yoga poses, we see this course as a pathway to mature as an educator, parent, instructor, counselor, or whatever role you hold or plan to hold. Go beyond the poses by incorporating mindfulness, self-reflection and self-inquiry, art, meditation, positive self-talk, relaxation, student-lead programming, and more.
