Kids Yoga & Mindfulness Teacher Training
In-person & Virtual Option
Kids are not just mini adults. Teaching yoga and mindfulness to children effectively takes a particular set of skills. Yoga Haven’s Kids Mindfulness & Yoga Teacher Training will give you the tools to work with school age children in a variety of settings. Yoga and mindfulness practices give kids and teens the tools to better understand themselves, foster their well-being and develop a sense of empowerment and achievement. Schools and parents are increasingly looking to this field as a way to manage high levels of stress.
Join Haven for our Kids’ Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training. This four-week evening training empowers adults to partner with children and adolescents, giving them their most critical toolkit!
Our unique training includes:
The basic neuroscience behind the practice
A study of the body’s nervous system and the effects of stress in our children and adolescents
Learn skills that empower adults to embody and share their practices
Practical tools and tips adults can use anywhere at anytime-Support for adults to develop their own curriculums and practices for school, home, after school and enrichment programming, and more
An opportunity to be in community with other adult learners as we explore the ancient practices of yoga and meditation in a modern world.
This training is for current yoga teachers or teacher trainees and/or classroom teachers, administrators or parents/caregivers who want to learn to use yoga and mindfulness practices to help the children and teens in their lives. Eligible for 14 hours of CEU credits. Some school districts may cover this if you receive a professional development stipend. Ask your administrators!
