ChildLight Yoga & Mindfulness in Schools Teacher Training

WarriorI.Bridget_copyDo you find yourself asking, "As a children's yoga teacher, how do I bring ChildLight Yoga into the schools?"  This training has the answers!  Let the creators of ChildLight Yoga and Yoga 4 Classrooms teach you everything we know about bringing yoga and mindfulness education into preschools, elementary, middle and high schools.

Become empowered to share your gifts in a variety of school contexts including during or after school enrichment programs, PE classes, health fairs, specials, field day, and the classroom setting. You will learn best practices for contacting schools and gaining support for implementation, adapting your teaching and language for the school environment, ensuring inclusivity, modifying for space constraints, managing large groups, lesson planning, business tips and tools, practice teaching and much more.

You will also:

- Explore special considerations for teaching children and youth in preschools, elementary schools, middle schools and high school settings.

- Discuss solutions, tips and tricks for teaching in unique settings and situations, such as outdoors, in classrooms, with large groups, mixed age groups, and how to make yoga widely accessible  and inclusive for all who wish to participate.

- Devise plans for classes in the classroom, during the school day, after school enrichment programs, on-going classes and one time teaching opportunities, and supporting athletic teams.

- Explore best practices for adapting language to a classroom, what props (if any) work best in the school environment, and whether taking off shoes is necessary for a yoga practice.

- Consider business topics such as pricing, creating agreements for services, liability insurance, and other considerations.

- Participate in a live Q&A with Lisa Flynn, founder and CEO of ChildLight Yoga and Yoga 4 Classrooms.

"I especially loved how it was made very clear, during the training and in the manual, how to make yoga public school friendly.  As yoga teachers, we are used to parts that come with our practice, but we have to be mindful of what is not acceptable in a public school setting.  ChildLight Yoga did an EXCELLENT job."

"I am teaching yoga in our after school program this year. It's going great! I have been following the manuals and lesson plans and the kids are loving it! Thank you so much!" ~ JH
