"True Yoga is not about the shape of your body...

but about the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn't care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to truly be called yoga, its essence must be embodied."

-Aadil Palkhivala

Flow & Grow Kids Yoga Teacher Training

February 2-4, 2018 | Taught by Lara Hocheiser of Flow & Grow Kids Yoga

Now more than ever, kids are in need of healthy skills to manage stress and cope with difficult emotions. Increased school workloads, heightened expectations, even social and political adversity can increase a child’s stress level. Integrating yoga and mindfulness practices into their lives not only helps kids to relax when they feel upset, discouraged, or depressed; but it also helps them to live in a state of higher awareness and put their stresses into perspective. Just like adults, kids who practice yoga are more likely to be focused, less reactive, and live happier, healthier lives.

Flow and Grow Kids Yoga Teacher Training is ideal for educators, clinicians, childcare workers, parents, and anyone who loves working with children and teens. The weekend training teaches participants how to create a dynamic curriculum that stimulates, empowers, calms and strengthens our next generation. Learn child development, classroom management, the impact of praise, and other relevant theories and practices regarding yoga and education. Graduates will leave with the tools to empower children to become strong, mindful, balanced individuals and leaders!
