This three day training intensive provides participants with the fundamental understanding and tools needed to teach a well rounded class deliberately combining yoga and mindfulness in ways that are accessible, engaging and safe for children.
Time is spent introducing participants to the framework of Connect, Breathe, Move, Focus and Relax that all LFY classes are based on. Practice teaching is emphasized. Classroom and behavior management strategies that support relationship building and engaged learning are discussed, as are compassionate communication strategies for working with students.
