Yoga provides benefits to adults in numerous areas. It is for this reason that yoga’s popularity is constantly increasing, and it is so widely practiced in today’s world. Equally, yoga can assume an important role for children and youth, ensuring optimum support for development of healthy and balanced persons in physical, emotional, and mental spheres.
Introducing yoga to children and adolescents should not be under-evaluated. On the contrary, it should be considered seriously. This course is open to yoga teachers, school teachers, child care workers or anyone interested in deepening their understanding of child development and yoga.
Throughout the duration of the course, the hours of the day are distributed between theoretical and practical lessons. The scope is to give future teachers a global vision of how to approach yoga with children from the first months of life through adolescence.
The course teaches fundamental techniques of traditional yoga, such as asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), mantra, Omkar chant, yoga Nidra, and relaxation specifically adapted to the stages of child development. Games, visualisations, storytelling, Partner yoga, and other fun activities are planned.
All activities are designed to fit with the principal aim of the course which is to spread yoga with its all traditions and its original meanings. In line with these traditions, the course works at the level of the body and its movement, but it is also infused with the yoga philosophy. Indeed, children and youth are whole persons, including body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Yogajoya considers the healthy and balanced development of all these aspects.
Pointers are given for introducing entertaining and motivating activities into the classroom to keep participation high and ensure that boredom or dead moments don’t take hold. Yogajoya's courses encourage you to take an active role in your learning experience by taking chances and personally experimenting with the application of tools and techniques that you will be putting into practice with your own students. There is also something “therapeutic” about taking a leap backward, rediscovering your inner child and expressing yourself joyously, and naturally without fear. Your creativity will be stimulated and you will come away from each lesson full of positive energy.
Teachers will finish the course with the ability to conduct lessons aimed at specific age groups. The methodologies presented and the techniques introduced are matched to the specificities of each stage of psycho-motor and personal development. The course includes a study manual with all material discussed. Individual feedback will be given to each student along with numerous other resources for teaching.
