Do you work with children or teens? The 20 hour Kids & Teen Yoga Teacher Training workshop presented by Yoga for Life may be just what you need. This training will give you the necessary tools for effectively teaching fun and safe yoga poses, basics of philosophy for young minds, and how to inspire the love for movement and caring for their own minds and bodies. This course also includes the power of language in the classroom, tips and tricks for conducting your yoga space, creative lesson plan ideas, and introduction to working with children with special needs.
The power of yoga on young people is incredible. It helps them focus, reset their perspective and brings them a sense of calm. There is a noticeable difference in children’s attitude and behavior as a result of yoga and meditation practice.
“I am working with an exceptional group of elementary kids and it is so rewarding to watch them begin to develop self regulation tools.” – Las Vegas yoga instructor
Yoga for Life is Ziya Nicole and Jacky Pagone, two dedicated yoga instructors who are extremely involved with teaching yoga and mindfulness, with an emphasis upon children.
Ziya has been teaching yoga for three years. She has a kids yoga teacher training certificate, a 200 hour YTT certificate (Yoga Teacher Training), Trauma Recovery Yoga certificate, and has taken workshops and trainings on perinatal yoga; she also has certification through Y12SR, which is yoga that compliments the 12 step recovery program. She has taught yoga to children and teens with special needs through Yoga for Life. During the school year she taught Mindful Movement by TRY for children in Title 1 schools. Of this experience she recently told me, “Perhaps they gather one tool, one piece of information or experience one feeling that they can carry with them into a dark place or throughout their lives. And if it makes a difference in even one life, it makes it all so worth it.” Ziya also teaches Trauma Recovery Yoga every Wednesday evening at The 705 in downtown Las Vegas.
Jacky is a registered yoga teacher, hypnotherapist, licensed professional massage therapist, and Reiki Master. After having two children of her own, Jacky became passionate about sharing mindfulness, breath awareness and movement to everyone. Her belief is everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from yoga regardless of ability or economic status. She says, “The lifelong tools yoga provides continue to give long after we step off our yoga mats, and these tools will not only improve the lives of individuals, but their communities… this is creating a better world for everyone.”
