PI 1 Foundations: Teaching Children's Yoga
Connect with your students through the practice of yoga.
PI 1 equips you with the basic principles and tools needed to effectively teach children in an academic environment. You will learn yoga techniques to promote children’s physical, mental, and emotional health. Emphasis is placed on learning how to read and relate to children through understanding child development, anatomy, physiology, and learning domains. From this transformational training, you will emerge with the ability to effectively tailor yoga classes to meet children’s varying needs.

PI 2 Building Blocks: Teaching Teen’s Yoga
Refine your teaching practices for teenage students.
PI 2 expands on the foundations of PI 1. You will study the internal and external changes in teenagers, and how changes can alter the teens’ yoga experience. This training will provide you with a deeper understanding of how to successfully shift teaching practices to connect with teens.
Focus: Ages 13 to 18 / Grades 6th to 12th
I received my 200 hour yoga teacher certification through Yoga Yoga in Austin, TX. In October 2017 I attended Yoga Ed.'s PI 2 and immediately saw the value of the curriculum for my social work practice. Through yoga students practice self-regulation, build self-awareness, and reduce stress. All of these benefits help to create a more productive learning environment for students and teachers.
