The Children’s Yoga course at a1000yoga Academy is designed by experienced Master yoga teachers and children’s health and education professionals. This course is registered under the Yoga Alliance, USA’s RCYS (Registered Children’s Yoga School). The course was conceptualized keeping in mind the need for specialization to teach Yoga to Children. We observed that many of qualified Yoga teachers were hesitant to take up teaching Yoga to children due to reasons like: is yoga even for children and if so when to start, unsure what to teach to which age group, what differentiates Yoga teacher who teaches adults and someone who teaches children , what measures to take when teaching children, what it takes to teach children with respect to personality, energy, creativity so on and so forth . Hence what we realized was to first bring the child back in you. To be a teacher for children in any field, one needs to connect with them at their level and then start teaching, guiding or nurturing them. It is a two-way process and never-ending with related to learning. RCYT course will take you back to your connection with the self as a child and then how you can bring in Yoga practice to teach children. This will take you through most of the nuances of teaching yoga to children.
