Discover how to bring yoga and mindfulness to the tweens and teens in your life.

Yoga and mindfulness bring a plethora of benefits such as forming healthy habits, reduced stress, and increasing self-awareness, emotional regulation, focus, empathy, and kindness. 

Learn how working with teens is different, what to expect when working with children ages 11-18, and how to adapt to working with them.

We will cover developmental stages of tweens/teens and how movement, mindfulness, breathing practices, games, and relaxation exercises can support growth, self-awareness, resilience, positive thinking, and health/wellness.

Attendees will leave the course with the knowledge and tools to bring yoga and mindfulness while enabling tweens/teens to build lifelong healthy habits.

Who is this course for?

This 2-week course is designed for educators, yoga teachers, parents, therapists, counselors, psychologists, or anyone who works with tweens/teens. 

We will cover:

  • Developmental Stage: Puberty & Adolescence 
  • Physical Changes
  • Emotional Changes
  • Teaching Health & Wellness to Teens
  • Asana Progressions for Teens 
  • Poses for physical strength
  • Poses for relaxation and recovery
  • Yoga for Life, Mental Health and Emotional Intelligence: Niyamas  

Our Vision

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.

 

This is an online course, part of Flow and Grow 95-Hour Online Children's Yoga Teacher Training RCYT. 

Trainees may wish to take this course individually or as part of the entire training package.
