Teaching Yoga and Mindfulness To Tweens and Teens

Become A Tween and Teen Yoga and Mindfulness Educator

  • Where: Amrita Yoga and Wellness, Philadelphia, PA
  • When: March 3rd-4th, 2018, 12-6pm
  • What You Will Learn:  This 12-24 hour, affordably crafted training is designed especially for those yoga teachers wanting to be able to package the asana, pranayama, and meditation practices they already know how to teach, into a format that is engaging, meaningful and developmentally appropriate for adolescents age 11-18. You will learn how to reach your students by teaching asana, meditation and  mindfulness in a thematic format that reaches adolescents where they are, and provides them with skills and life lessons they can take with them beyond the four corners of their mat. With this training, comes the opportunity to observe two hours of classroom teaching in a Philadelphia area school. Additional observation and teaching experience can be obtained in the Yoga Child Apprenticeship, or Level II training.

    • Completion of a 200 hour adult RYT program.
    • Yoga teaching experience (preferred).
