This photo was from my last kids yoga teacher training course – can you believe it was 4 months ago! That was a fun class – each group is a different mix, but I don’t think I’ve ever taught a training with so many yoga teachers in it. In this class we went deeply into what to do when you get in front of the kids.
Some of the trainings have more daycare teachers or school teachers and parents. These folks know a lot about the classroom management side of things and so we go into yoga more.
The in-person trainings cover everything you need to know. You find out not only what you didn’t know, but also what you didn’t know you didn’t know! That’s the trickiest part of learning – when you don’t know you need to know something. When I first started teaching children I didn’t know how to manage a class. I didn’t know I needed to set guidelines and boundaries with the kids and I got walked all over. When I figured out that I NEED TO KNOW this – then only could I find out HOW to do it.
In-person training illuminates all this because it allows for interaction with the trainer but also the other people attending and all their experience.
That being said, I invite you to come and experience my Kids Yoga Teacher Training. I won’t go into too much detail as I know many of you are in other countries, provinces, and cities. But I invite you to mark the date for the April training for an edu-holiday: come take the course and see Toronto.
But for those reading in Toronto you may be interested in the six week Training starting January 12. It’s special because it’s the first time I’m pairing the course with a Family Yoga Class. As you know, it’s one thing to talk about teaching kids, but another to do it. It helps to actually see children doing yoga. So that’s what we’ll do here.
Also for the Torontonians (that what we call ourselves here): You are invited to join in the Family Yoga Class. Especially for those with kids, but also for those who want to bring out the kid in you! This class is open to all. So feel free to join even if you just want to do an extra yoga class each week. Guaranteed to be more fun than your average yoga class.
