DESCRIPTION:

Children inhabit a world of pure magic, reminding us to play, connect with nature, have empathy, love ourselves, and embrace our emotions.

Join Jessica for an intensive three-day training designed to explore these dimensions and teach yoga to youth and families with nature and heartfelt play at the center.

With nine years of experience teaching kids and family yoga, Jessica has crafted a comprehensive nature-based curriculum to implement these concepts in any environment.

This training is ideal if you: 
• Work with kids and families, seeking to integrate body awareness, nature, and movement into your practice.
• Are a parent or caregiver eager to explore screen-free, connective activities.
• As a yoga teacher, aim to broaden your teaching scope to include children, teenagers, and families.
• Desire to reconnect with your inner child through nature, yoga, and playfulness.

Over three days, you’ll learn foundational techniques for teaching yoga to children, teens, families, and guiding adults in inner child reconnection.

This training includes: 
• Immersive experiences to reconnect with your inner child through movement, play, laughter, guided visualizations, and prompts for diving in.
• Group explorations in nature to foster creative connection with the environment—akin to a forest school class for adults.
• Valuable resources for your teaching journey, including:
    – A spiral-bound “Nature-Based Yoga for Kids and Families” manual, featuring 30 hour-long nature-based lesson plans, with hundreds of activities, pose adaptations, breath exercises, partner poses, and more.
    – A Wild Life Yoga family partner pose deck with 52 cards.
    – An organic canvas teaching bag filled with all of the above as well as some props to get you started, a small notebook, pen, laminated chart of emotions, and organizing tabs to make navigating your manual a breeze.

In this training, you’ll earn teaching philosophies such as: 
• Integrating the eight limbs of yoga into teaching younger populations.
• Adapting to the seven different learning styles.
• Customizing poses and activities based on student needs, ages, and class intentions.

You will receive comprehensive tools for structuring your classes, covering: 
• Age and ability-appropriate poses
• Creative breath exercises
• Fostering positive body awareness
• Intuitive movement styles inspired by children and nature
• Crafting impactful stories illustrated by yoga poses
• Building connection through partner and group poses
• Adjusting energy flow and activity lengths based on class needs

Please Note: on Friday, September 27th, we will begin at The Yoga Underground before proceeding to Big Springs Park in Provo Canyon for several hours—rain or shine—please prepare outdoor supplies accordingly.

This training promises three days of fun, presence, and playfulness. You’ll gain not only the tools to start teaching your own kids yoga classes but also the joy of reconnecting with and honoring your inner child. We look forward to welcoming you!
