Kids Yoga Teacher Training

Are you a yoga teacher, school teacher or a parent?

Would you like to bring more yoga and mindfulness practices to children?

If yes we have something to share!

Happy Little Yogis is so excited to release our newest program, Kids Yoga
Teacher Training! That’s right beautiful friends, we are helping bring Kids Yoga
to more local schools, pre-schools and into more homes so that teachers, parents
and children can experience the benefits that practicing yoga can bring!

In this intensive 5-hour introductory workshop, we will help teachers, educators
and parents gain an understanding and real-life skills in how to bring yoga,
breathing and mindfulness practices and techniques in to these little peoples
lives. With these new skills teachers, educators and parents will be able to
help calm children when they are feeling stresses; assist children to find and
maintain focus and remain energised but mindful throughout the day. Teachers,
educators and parents can call upon these practices throughout the day to help
support children at any time!

During our workshop, we will work together in small groups where we will cover
the basic principles of yoga; group discussion regarding the benefits and skills
that yoga practices can bring to the teacher, student and classroom plus parent,
child and home and finally, training in the physical practice of yoga and the
poses and practices which will provide the most benefit to children.
 

What is Happy Little Yogis?

Happy Little Yogis is a yoga class designed specifically for childhood
development and enrichment. Classes encourage little ones to develop
self-confidence and self-love through awareness and reflection.

Because yoga isn’t just for grown-ups!

The benefits of yoga for children are abundant and include:

~ Gentle guidance to help them live in their truth, from the heart
~ Encouragement of mindfulness in daily life
~ Simple strategies for slowing down and unwinding
~ Easy, fun tools for grounding and centring
~ Socialising with other kids and families in a nurturing environmentThe classes
are physically energetic and animated to begin, incorporating exciting elements
of music, dance, drama and lots of active imagination! We then slow down our
flow to emphasise breathing, relaxation and intuition.

Happy Little Yogis classes are full of fun, profound lessons on love, respect
and connection with people, nature, animals and our beautiful world.
