Yoga for the Balanced Child Training Offered by ReFlex Arts
From August 14-17 and 22-24, ReFlex Arts is presenting Yoga for the Balanced Child training. This program will be held on Friday, from 1 to 9 p.m., as well as Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 6 p.m.
Awaken the child within and join ReFlex Arts for a Yoga Alliance certified 95-hour children’s yoga teacher training. Thirty-seven contact hours of training includes child development and age appropriate yoga postures and activities, games to reinforce self-esteem, camaraderie, self-awareness, compassion, environmental ethics and creative thinking skills. Learn methods to teach ethics, responsibility, and sensitivity for others through story time and positive discussion, as well as ways to incorporate sound, scent, textiles and art projects into the yoga class for enhanced creativity and self-actualization.
Class pacing, formatting and opportunities to promote educational growth, youth anatomy and physiology will also be covered. An additional three hour segment will be devoted to aerial yoga and acroyoga, fun ways to inspire youth to explore and adore movement discoveries.
The training includes an 18-hour practicum internship to be held at the facility with an age group of choice or through ReFlex’s school outreach program. Teachers, activities directors, child care workers, yoga teachers or anyone else, working with children – whose role is to support the growth and development of responsible, compassionate individuals – will find this course comprehensive and inspirational.
