This course addresses the challenges that we all face as parents, educators and human beings, helping to guide young people through the process of growing up. Divided into theory and practice, it explores the root cause of these challenges and teaches us a variety of tools and techniques to help us and the kids in our lives remain calm, grounded and present no matter what life throws at us.
Before we can share anything authentically, we need to understand it deeply ourselves - so this course starts with you. You’ll learn about your overall makeup, moving from the peripheral, outer shell (the body) through to the deepest, most subtle layer - the heart of who you are. You’ll learn some simple, daily, self care rituals you can incorporate into your life and you’ll be offered a variety of resources that you can use to re-establish and maintain a sense of balance on all levels.
You’ll then be offered a yoga-based tools framework, with specific techniques and practices that are suitable for children of different age groups. Whether they’re young kids or teenagers, these tools are practical, adaptable and effective and are created to help them manage their own wellbeing as they navigate the path of growing up.
Who is this course for?
If you’re a parent, caregiver, or teacher, you’ll no doubt be aware of the complex challenges these roles bring. This course will help you to take care of yourself first so that you can be a calm, present and compassionate guide for the young person or people in your life. You’ll come away with a handy toolbox of yoga-based resources that you can share with them to make life's path a little smoother!
