Eagle-Vail — Revolution Power Yoga in Eagle-Vail will host Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training from Friday, through Sunday. This training is a comprehensive exploration of how to teach yoga in a way that’s compatible with the maturing minds and bodies of 8- to 13-year-old yoginis.
The training covers why yoga is great for 8- to 13-year-olds and how to share its many benefits with parents and children on the yoga path. The workshop will teach age-appropriate yoga postures, sequences, themes and cooperative partner poses; an exploration of props and music; breathing exercises, chants and deep relaxation and meditation techniques for stress management.
Attendees learn how to plan, sequence and lead fun, creative and educational yoga classes; methods for creating an atmosphere that supports open sharing and self-expression; child development and anatomy as it relates to yoga; and behavior-management techniques for facilitating a classroom environment that is positive, safe and noncompetitive. They will also have opportunities to observe yoga classes for this age group taught by Nicole Koleshis.
Yoga instructor training tuition includes a Next Generation Yoga certificate of completion; a course manual, materials and supplies; your name listed on the Find a Teacher page on the Next Generation Yoga website; access to a private Facebook group for fellow graduates; an invitation to join the Next Generation Yoga Teacher Community; and a graduation celebration.
Applicants must have a minimum of one year of experience practicing yoga. For more information or to register, visit http://www.nextgerationyoga.com.
