Children's Yoga Teacher Training with Deven Sisler


January 31-February 2 / April 24-26 / July 24-26 / November 6-8

This comprehensive teacher training is for parents, caregivers, yoga teachers and educators who want to share the benefits of yoga and mindfulness with children. Each weekend will give you tools to optimize your offering for various ages, group sizes, and settings, while giving you the opportunity to embody empowerment, relaxation, and practice teaching. 

Our weekend format and schedules are designed to support your personal rejuvenation and self care. From this wellspring you can meet the children in your life with equanimity, patience, and presence. 

This entire course will cover: * The three pillars of the YAMI school: ethics, communication & holistic growth * Guided meditations, breath exercises, partner yoga and mindful games * Foundations of Non-Violent Communication * Developmental Patterns & Anatomy * Practice Teaching & Feedback   * Science based evidence for why and how these tools work

Attending all four modules, with self-study and practicum hours will complete your 95 hour Yoga Alliance approved certification. Some participants choose to complete this training in a linear fashion in a year, others may take up to three years to complete the teacher training.
