OM Schooled kids yoga teacher training grew out of NYC public school yoga- so its a treat to offer this training once a year back home in NYC! Join us at YogaVida NOHO this July to learn to teach kids ages 4-12 yoga in schools, studios and privately.
OM Schooled believes it is an honor to teach children yoga and offers rigorous but joyful trainings that will enrich any yogi’s life! Our program teaches structure – classroom management, daily lesson plans and curriculum creation – along with the freedom, fun and energy that comes with kids yoga. We create the space and opportunity to practice teach in order to give our participants a comprehensive and innovative teaching toolbox.
There are no prerequisites other than the desire to teach children and a love for yoga. This course is great for yoga teachers, school teachers, parents, therapists, and anyone who loves yoga enough to share with the next generation. Participants will leave with a handful of co-created lesson plans and the confidence to use them.
We don’t think it’s an overstatement to say: sharing yoga with kids could change our collective future world!
THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF THIS WEEKEND PROGRAM, WE’LL STUDY:
> How to structure a kids yoga class, focusing on 4-12 year olds (K-5) with an overview of other age groups ranging from birth through teen.
