Becoming an Effective Inclusive Yoga Teacher for Kids & Teens

 Want to teach inclusive yoga to kids and teens?

Abby Wills from Shanti Generation has a really great post “How to Become an Effective Kids or Teens Yoga Teacher” on Elephant Journal: http://www.elephantjournal.com/2011/05/how-to-become-an-effective-kids-or-teens-yoga-teacher-abby-wills/.
In addition to the suggestions in Abby’s post, I would also highly recommend getting info about the kids and any special needs and/or health conditions they may have in advance to help you plan.
  • Some kids may need modifications to poses or may have contraindications for certain poses based on medical conditions, physical needs or sensory needs.
  • Some kids may need visual supports in order to participate in a meaningful way. For more info about visual supports and a few free printables, check out my previous posts: http://wp.me/p1t7TU-cT & http://wp.me/p1t7TU-a2
Having info about the kids you will be teaching is one of the most important things help you plan appropriate classes 🙂
