Inspired Kids Yoga Teacher Training

The Inspired Kids Yoga Teacher Training method will guide you through step by step how to teach heartfelt classes that are a brilliant blend of both FUN and CALM to help kids be courageous, compassionate & calm. 

A quick overview of the training in 2022:

Who is the Inspired Kids Yoga Teacher Training for? 

This training is designed for Yoga Teachers wishing to specialise as a Children's Yoga Teacher.  You can become a RCYT (Registered Children's Yoga Teacher) after completing the 95 hours of training, because Inspired Kids Yoga is a registered training school with Yoga Alliance.

If you aren't a yoga teacher and simply want to learn everything you need to be able to integrate the tools of Kids Yoga into your current work with kids, then check out the Calm Fairies online courses & workshops designed for health professionals; educators & parents.

After I finished my initial level 1 teacher training, I knew I wanted to teach kids, but I didn't want to learn a few yoga games and be given a lesson plan and be sent on my way. I wanted to understand the fundamental difference between teaching adults and teaching children yoga.

What the training provided me was an incredibly strong, reliable foundation and a set of tools that  I can draw upon no matter which group of kids I'm teaching.   

I think ultimately as teachers we want to feel confident and capable and that is exactly how I felt when I finished training with Inspired Kids Yoga.

You will be given...

* the theory you need to know about anatomy, development & teaching methods.

* a whole tool kit of yoga poses; breathing & relaxation techniques.

* frameworks that are easy for you to understand & implement.

 

* PLUS what you won't get anywhere else- the lesson plan template that I personally use in my kids yoga classes. You can cut and past your own ideas into it so that your classes can be authentic to you, but using a tried and tested lesson plan outline.

 

The next best thing to being face to face...

When I first started teaching kids yoga back in 2005, I never imagined that one day I would be sharing yoga to people all over the world on a computer! Whilst there is nothing quite like face to face training, there is still very much a community feel in our online group and there are opportunities for us to cover all of the "hands on" / person to person/ practical teaching experience aspects of the training. 

 

You will have a chance to learn how to give and receive kind, constructive feedback in a way that inspires you to evolve.

You matter to me...

Numbers are capped at 15 people. Smaller group sizes leads to a more intimate learning environment. Whilst other training schools have 30-50 people in them, that is not the Inspired Kids Yoga ethos. I want to get to know your name without a name tag, I want to look you in the eyes and connect. I am passionate about holding a space conducive to optimal learning.

The inspiration doesn't end when the course does!  There is an ongoing connection with the community of other Inspired Kids Yoga Teachers. We bounce ideas off each other; share resources; cross promote our classes and cheer on each other's successes and unique contributions.  

You become part of a supportive tribe.

"The Inspired Kids Yoga Teacher Training has not only given me tools and the confidence to teach young children through to teenagers. It has also given me a fresh outlook on myself and teaching my adult students too. Love, love, loved everything about this course. Thank you and can't wait to share my teachings far and wide".

“I loved your training.  I knew the quality would be there, as I love how you teach, but I did not expect to love the content as much as I did.  I felt very inspired by everything that was presented to us. I had a fear that Kids Yoga was all about being silly and being a big kid, which is not really who I am.  I prefer the deeper layers.  I was really happy and surprised that there is a place for the deeper teaching of Yoga to children.”

There is so much wisdom and heart put into the course.  I walked away feeling like I was overflowing with knowledge and passion and ideas. The training changed my life in my own yoga practice, my parenting choices, my confidence. Every aspect of my life has had an improvement.
