This Yoga Alliance registered Yoga For Kids Teacher Training will help yoga teachers, educators and practicing yogini parents to skilfully teach children of all ages. Based on Howard Gardners Multiple Intelligences theory and Maria Montessoris Learning by Doing approach, you will experience the multiple ways that children can learn in a fun and playful way through the use of props, storytelling, music, art and age-appropriate themes.

Learn to teach with confidence and creativity while cultivating the patience and acceptance needed to support a fair and non-competitive environment. The methods taught will empower you to give the gift of yoga to the next generation of amazing light beings.

This program will appeal to parents, teachers or anyone working and interacting with children, or those with a general interest in learning about the diverse ways to bring yoga and consciousness into children’s lives. 

"The schools correctly organized are gardens where the soul-child grows and nourishes. The attention and the spiritual food offered to a human plant in the first years of its life, generally, determine its development”

Location

Ubud, a town in central Bali, is far removed from the beach party scene in Kuta, and is regarded as the cultural centre of Bali. It is famous as an arts and crafts hub, and much of the town and nearby villages seems to consist of artists’ workshops and galleries. There are some remarkable architectural and other sights to be found, and a general feeling of well being to be enjoyed, all thanks to the spirit, surroundings, and climate of the place.

Bali is called the Island of the Gods. A beautiful island where your wisdom, insight, creativity, playful inner child, and mindful attention expands and nourishes your heart and soul. A delicious environment to spend 12 days immersing yourself into the art of teaching children yoga.

*THE TRAINING WILL BE HELD AT TAKSU UBUD
