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.
Pre-Requisite: Foundations of Teaching Yoga to Children and 10 hours of teaching children’s yoga. Homework assignments will be given upon registration.
Note: Advanced Methods and Application and Practicum can be taken in any order.
