Folk Kids Teacher Training

June 16 - June 21

Folk Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Alexandra Rossi

Lighting the torch of mindfulness in the hearts of youth through yoga and meditation is one of the most powerful and empowering ways to shape our world.

Yoga Garden Kids® is for parents, yoga teachers, school teachers, educators or those working with children 4 to 12 years old. Participants acquire the tools to help children deepen self-awareness and well-being through yoga and mindfulness. Participants explore a personal meditation practice while in training to develop the ability to authentically share both yoga and mindfulness with youth. Yoga Garden Kids® is a unique, mindfulness-based program that will prepare you to teach yoga to youth and will cover topics such as working with children with ADD and ADHD.

Yoga Garden Kids® was built on the philosophy that children learn best when playing. The program focuses on deepening a personal mindfulness practice, bringing yoga to children in their own words and understanding the neuroscience of child development. This training prepares students to become kids yoga teachers by giving them the tools to understand children, to communicate with them, to craft unique mindfulness exercises and safe yoga sequences and to launch a sustainable career.

In the Garden Kids Yoga Teacher Training, you will learn:

– Stages of mental and emotional development throughout childhood
– Communication skills to interact with parents, schools and developmental specialists
– Yoga poses for children in their own words
– Basics of mindfulness, exercises and games
– Teaching skills for a young audience
– Pediatric anatomy
– Class observation and teaching practicums
