Sarah works directly with students to train them online, via combination of recorded videos, Zoom/ Google Hangout sessions, readings, homework and home practice and connection to other students in the community. You will receive a full curriculum map of our time together, plus will have space to explore the specific questions you have as we help you find and develop your own kids yoga teacher voice.
Projects include lesson planning and curriculum development, learning and trying kids pranayama and new ways to work with poses, learning a library of classroom management techniques, a dictionary of kids yoga poses, and exploring field work in your own city or town (when possible) and more.
One benefit of learning online is working at your own pace (while still getting a lot of one-on-one time with the teacher and having a community around the world).
Another benefit is having the materials at your fingertips forever. (see below for our inspiring list of where folks have studied from!)
To apply, fill out the Teacher Training Application, noting you are looking to learn online.
MORE INFO, I.E. THE GOOD STUFF:
Learn how to teach kids yoga from hOMe in an intensive yet fun 7 week course. We’re super excited to offer this! With your kids yoga knowledge you’ll be able to teach in schools, studios, and privately, demonstrating leadership, empathy, knowledge, wisdom, and fun.
How does it work?
Each Monday you’ll receive an email packet of: video, audio, OMwork, lesson plans and practices so you can start learning from your home. You will have a week to complete the lessons, with OMwork due the following weekend. Together, we will walk through the curriculum. You will be asked to practice teach, recording your lesson, and will be expected to keep up a personal practice. We will connect weekly (time set up privately with you) via Zoom, Google Hangout and/or phone to digest all we are learning.
To complete the course you’ll have to complete a written final exam, and write a comprehensive lesson plan for your core demographic.
You should plan to devote 3 hours per week on the material, but can work whenever is convenient.
