Want to give back? Why not share yoga with the next generation? Join Jane Anne Tager for a fun and interactive weekend of play! Learn how yoga can help to counter the challenges we face in our current public education system and uncover lots of great ideas for sharing yoga with children of different ages and in different settings. 

Curriculum includes:

What is yoga, what is children’s yoga, and what are the innumerable benefits of each?
Which learning theories might be appropriate for you.
The different learning styles for children, taking into consideration: age groups from pre-school to teens and male vs. female.
How to teach different age groups: 2-5, 6-9, 10-12, and teens.
How to create themes, games, partner yoga, and interesting stories.
Appropriate breathing, relaxation, chanting, meditations, and visualizations for children.
How to lesson plan, sequence classes, and improvise.
Adapting to different teaching environments from public schools to churches, rec. centers, etc…
Many opportunities for group teaching and peer review.
Developing different behavior management techniques that support a loving, non-competitive environment and encourage self-respect and freedom of expression.
How to prepare for class, and tons of ideas for incorporating art, music, books, props, singing, storytelling, and spiritual inspiration in children’s yoga classes and more…

Requirements for application:
We strongly recommend you have some classroom teaching experience (of any kind — yoga or school), as this is an intensive short training focusing on teaching children’s yoga. We are assuming you have had some basic familiarity with yoga. Open to yoga teachers, school teachers with yoga experience, or serious yoga students.

What are Advanced Study Modules?

Benefits-05We’ve built our Advanced Study Modular Program around the drop-in concept. There are 11 required modules you need to take, each lasting anywhere from 2-5 days long, generally over a weekend. Modules are taught either by one of our experienced staff members or an international yoga teacher. We bring some of the biggest names in the industry to our studio and programs. In this very flexible modular program, you get to decide which particular module you take, at what time and taught by whom. And you have 5 years to complete 11 modules (some students do it within 2 years though). Modules are generally open to the public as well, so you will be joined by experienced teachers as well as aspiring enthusiasts. Modules can be taken by someone not going after a 300 Hour Certification–though if they decide later to pursue the 300 Hour Certification, they can retroactively include the modules they’ve already taken in the past 12 months only.
