Inclusive Yoga Certificate

Yoga for children with special needs - downward dog poseYou Can Accommodate Children with a Variety of Needs in Your Classes!

All children come with a unique set of needs. Discover effective techniques to bring yoga to all children. This Certificate gives you an introduction to Inclusive Yoga with information, resources, and class plans for groups that are not always represented in typical yoga materials.

About the Certificate:

  • Introduction to understanding children with special needs, including children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), Anxiety, and Different Abilities
  • Yoga for Boys as a special population – so boys don’t continue to think of yoga as a “girl thing.”
  • Yoga Sensitivity – how to introduce yoga to children in a way that respects all cultures, religions, and those of no religion that is extremely school friendly too.
  • Comparisons of a session with kids in a typical yoga class and yoga with kids with different needs.
  • Sample lesson plans for children of different ages using specialized props and stories to enhance the teachings.
  • How to set up your classroom to minimize distracting elements.
  • Use of Visual Schedules and Visual Antecedent Procedures to ease anxiety.
  • Strategies for involving and interviewing parents, caregivers and teachers.
  • Using the poses of the Sun Salutation to engage children in short yoga exercises and longer sequences.
  • Yoga Camp Practicum: Three hours of yoga classes with children where you will observe Aruna teaching the kids, then teach with your colleagues from the assigned curriculum. Aruna will be guiding you throughout the camp to give everyone a beautiful experience of kids yoga.

Your Yoga Man teachers package is fantastic – great job. We are offering yoga in an after school program, which is separated into boys and girls. Steve is teaching the boys, and what you have created will be a wonderful teaching tool for him to use.

Yoga Man Colouring Pages – Yours to Print

My Boys Love Yoga Man

My kids were waiting for the next pose and they were very disappointed when I announced that I didn’t have Yoga Man that week. I teach yoga for kids in my health center in Cyprus. My boys love the whole package, stories, images etc.

Creative Ways To Teach Children about Stress

My favourite part of the package is the Games & Activities which provide creative ways to teach children about stress and ways to deal with it in their lives. Varying in duration (15-60 mins) each game is inspired by Sun Salutations. The pose cards from the Colouring Book, and included reflection questions deepen and expand the practice. It’s a classic battle of good vs evil and it’s Yoga Man to the rescue!
