During an eighteen hour weekend we will introduce the intention and practice of teaching yoga to children. Using the structure of the 5 koshas from yogic science, we will address yoga practices suitable for specific developmental ages physically, energetically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Developmental stages addressed are early childhood (ages 3-7), childhood (ages 7-10), pre-adolescence (ages 11-13), and adolescence (ages 13-17).
We will practice the basic structure of a yoga class for children and how it benefits childhood experiences directly. After the weekend you will be given some individual work to deepen your understanding and practice in your own environment. This class is valuable for parents, teachers, yoga instructors, counselors and medical providers who deal with children regularly.
No prior yoga experience is required.
