Little Guru Yoga and Mindfulness for Kids Teacher Training

Join Jen Davis, E-RYT 200, RYT 500 and Jen Bluestone E-RYT 200, RYT 500, RCYT, who have over 16 years combined experience in teaching kids yoga, for a training that will help you introduce the gifts of yoga to children. Yoga is for everyone, including the smallest yogis. However, how yoga is presented to children is very different than a typical adult class. Through this weekend training, you will learn how to hook kids on yoga by meeting them where they are and making the gifts of yoga accessible to them at whatever age they may be. This playful way of teaching yoga to kids will not only introduce them to the practice, but also give them tools to deal with the stress that is a part of our children’s lives in this day and age.

So why yoga for kids? We have learned through our collective experience that kids LOVE yoga. Yoga gives kids an opportunity to disconnect from the stressful demands of today’s world and deepens their connection to their body, breath, creativity and emotions. Yoga fosters healthy self-esteem, aids in navigating negative feelings and self-talk, and gives kids the tools they need to find peace within.

This training will include:

  • Introduction to age-appropriate yoga poses taught in a way that appeals to kids
  • Use of games to enhance the lessons of yoga
  • Breathing, guided imagery and meditation techniques
  • How to incorporate music, art and books to enhance the experience
  • Use of partner poses to develop social skills and teamwork
  • Age appropriate language and themes
  • Classroom management

Teaching Yoga, Meditation, and Mindfulness to Teens and Tweens

Teens and tweens in this age are living in a fast paced world that is different than any previous generation. They are overscheduled, loaded down with homework, many have jobs and social media adds a layer of stress that we, as a society, still don’t know how it will effect bodies and minds in the long term.

Teaching yoga, meditation and mindfulness to teens and tweens is a beautiful way to help them navigate this new terrain. These practices help them cultivate calm and peace within themselves as well as connection and empathy to others.

This workshop is designed for yoga teachers and yoga practitioners who want to share their love of yoga with this age group. Whether you are looking to offer practices within a classroom setting, creating a series in a studio setting or are a parent looking for ways to help your child, this workshop is for you! We will give you many different tools so that you may offer these practices in a way that makes sense to teens and tweens and meets them right where they are.

Please wear comfortable clothing and bring something to write with.

Bringing Yoga, Mediation and Mindfulness into the Classroom

Kids Yoga Raleigh NC

Kids are stressed! Kids are over scheduled! Kids are disconnected from themselves due to social media! Studies show that kids who meditate, practice mindfulness and reconnect with their bodies through yoga (movement) perform better in school, are less anxious, need less discipline and have a deeper understanding of self and empathy for others.

Following many requests, Jen Davis, E-RYT 500 and Jen Bluestone, RYT 500, have created a workshop for school teachers of all ages to learn skills/techniques to bring mindfulness, meditation and movement to the classroom setting.

During this workshop you will learn techniques to offer your students that are appropriate for public or private school settings. This workshop is open to anyone who works with children! You will leave with many 10-15 minute practices in yoga, meditation and mindfulness to weave into your day to create a more consistent and peaceful setting for your students. Jen & Jen are both passionate about this movement and truly believe that we can bring peace to the world one child at a time!

Please wear comfortable clothing and bring something to write with.
