Program Details

For non-yoga trained educators, health-care professionals, and yoga teachers.

Are you looking to make a difference in the lives of children? Take home a toolkit of proven practices to create a compassionate environment and relieve behavioral, social, and emotional disorders for children, including at-risk youth. This workshop is ideal for non-yoga trained educators and health-care professionals, as well as yoga teachers seeking innovative ways to improve well-being for children in kindergarten through Grade 12.

Solidify your skills by practicing breathing and movement techniques to improve emotional regulation in children under moderate to severe stress. You also learn effective methods to reduce your own stress, while immersing yourself in a rejuvenating environment with dynamic faculty and a community of like-minded professionals.
