About the Course
This course is entirely self-paced for you to complete in your own time.
The course will take around 7 hours to complete and counts as 7 CPD points with Yoga Alliance Professionals. It is a great starting point on your teaching yoga to teens journey. The course includes a comprehensive booklet with 6 lesson plans, sequences suitable to use with teens as well as mudras, breath awareness techniques, games and pair work suitable for this age group. You will also receive our Rays of Calm audio download for teens which contains 10 tried and tested relaxation and visualisation exercises for you to use in your teen classes.
It was fascinating learning about the developmental anatomy of teens, both physiologically and mentally. I learned news skills to incorporate into my teaching for all ages and the workshop was a great experience, Not only was it fun but very informative too.
We learned some great sequences for teen classes and I enjoyed the exploration of pranayama and mudras. The anatomy talk was very useful too. The teaching was very clear and detailed and included lots of practical strategies to take away and use immediately
I found how to manage a teen class really beneficial as it gave me lots of ideas of how to respond to certain behaviour and what to expect in different settings. The mudras with breathing were lovely and I will definitely use these in my classes with teens.
Christiane has been studying yoga since 1995 and first qualified as a yoga teacher in 2003. She has continued the study of yoga ever since. As well as her original Sivananda yoga course, she has completed a 500 hour British Wheel of Yoga Teacher Training Course. She qualified to teach mindfulness MBSR/MBCT in 2014 and is currently training to be a Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher.
Whilst she has a wealth of experience in teaching to all ages her passion is sharing the benefits of yoga and mindfulness with children and young people. So many of the adult students on her courses have commented on how often they wished they'd discovered yoga earlier as it would have been a fantastic resource to navigate through the uncertain years of adolescence. She wholeheartedly agrees with this and believes that there is an appropriate yoga practice for everyone.
