Teaching Yoga to Children – Foundation I

Join children’s yoga specialist, Christyn Schroeder (KidPowerment founder) for a fun-filled workshop where you will learn the basics of creating dynamic, multidimensional yoga classes that reach and challenge children of all learning styles and age levels. This course is a wonderful foundation to begin your Children’s Yoga journey upon, or to re-inspire your current work with children.

 

What you can expect to learn?
  • Steps to creating effective classes
  • Introduction to child development/ anatomy
  • Effective classroom management skills
  • Meditation and Mindfulness Practices
  • How to enhance learning with storytelling, music, art projects, and more
  • Yoga poses and breath work for kids – the how and the why
  • Creating guided meditations to calm and inspire
  • Partner poses to grow confidence and community
  • Yoga Games

Students can expect to walk away with a vision for the great potential a Children’s yoga practice can have, the understanding of how to set up classes for kids age 3-13, and the developmental stages that occur during these times to know how to properly create classes. In addition, participants will get the chance to take part in a real Children’s Yoga Class to witness the tools in action. This weekend will be filled with a balance of active learning, group creation, and contemplative practices. We will play, laugh, and explore our way through each day!
