95 Hour YTG Registered Teacher Track–Step II or III

Application and Practicum will allow you to apply what you have learned and practiced in a wider context.   Posture clinics will focus on a deeper knowledge of teaching asana to a wider age group as well as differently-abled children.  We will also focus on understanding patterns of motor development in children, challenging you to identify and work with those whose development may be atypical. Discussion and lecture will broaden your knowledge in communicating with children and working with parents. We will adapt the YTG core components to teaching classes for toddlers and families.  Finally, individual practice teach sessions and one on one coaching with Susan will propel you on your path to reaching your goals and maximizing your potential as a teacher.

Application and Practicum will Cover:

  • Effective Communication with Children
  • Typical and Atypical Motor Development and Movement
  • Understanding Sensory Processing in Children
  • Effective Communication and Partnering with Parents
  • Family Yoga
  • Introduction to Teaching Toddlers
