Regardless of our challenges, with practice, each human being is uniquely able to develop greater body awareness, physical and mental strength and well-being. Learn how the practice of yoga can benefit children and teens ages 4+ with a wide range of diagnoses and physical and developmental disorders such as Trauma, Anxiety and Depression, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorders, Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome. In this training, you will be empowered to facilitate individualized, group and family programs, sharing appropriate breathing and relaxation techniques, as well as posture modifications using chairs and other props. You will also learn effective methods for encouraging cooperation, building community and developing social skills. Emphasis will be on creating lesson plans for a variety of contexts as well as practice teaching. All tools and techniques will be shared with a focus on teaching through a trauma informed lens.
