kids yoga teacher training
children are great imitators. give them something to imitate.
The greatest gift Yoga bestows to children is its devotion to encouraging positive self-image, body awareness, coordination, flexibility and strength in a physical manner that is non-competitive and that inspires cooperation, compassion and a deep connection with oneself and the natural world that surrounds them.
Presenting yoga in a child’s language can bring them enormous benefits so that they can counter the stress they experience living in a “hurry-up’ed” world. They learn techniques for concentration, self-regulation, relaxation, positive self-esteem and inner fulfillment giving them healthy tools to use when dealing with life’s pressures.
When you learn the benefits of teaching yoga to children you become a facilitator that will guide your students while simultaneously opening your heart and letting them guide you. undoubtedly they will invite you into a boundless world of exploration and wonder. When you join them, the process will be continually reciprocal and provide an opportunity for everyone to create, express themselves, and grow together.
children love yoga because they can be anything they can imagine
