Description

The workshop is part of our Yoga Service initiative. Learn more.

In this intensive Yoga Alliance certified program, you learn to teach a holistic class to meet children’s unique physical, emotional, and social needs. Classes incorporate yoga and mindfulness activities that help youth—from preschool through high school—connect to themselves and their community; develop focus and concentration; find strength, balance, and confidence; recognize and regulate emotions; and learn to nurture themselves.

Explore the challenges of teaching in schools, studios, and community spaces. Gain information about how to set up new classes, navigate relationships with schools, manage challenging behavior, serve the needs of diverse populations, teach from a trauma informed perspective, create an effective curriculum, and more. This weeklong immersion combines all three levels of the Little Flower Yoga certification program for a deeply empowering experience, rich with opportunities for your own personal practice.
