tt_waveFocusing primarily on children ages nine and older, this ten-hour course will give you all the tools you need to create your own yoga program for older kids, preteens, and teens (and Yoga Alliance CEUs, too!) Through the use of games, props, and sequencing, we will transform traditional practice into a creative, stimulating, and—most importantly—FUN yoga experience for children ages nine and up.

You do not have to take thefoundation training (for working with younger kids) in order to take this training, but it is highly recommended that you take both trainings. Foundation training is on Sunday, June 6, 2010. Click here for details.
In the advanced training, we will delve into the world of interactive asana and movement, and cover topics such as sequencing, teaching challenging postures to kids, and helping kids to deal with growing up in a yogic way. You will experience a one-hour mini yogis class, and to learn how to design empowering kid-specific practices that encourage older children to be strong, self-confident, and healthy in mind, body, and spirit.
