Children’s Teacher Training

4 Day Course – 21st & 22nd May and 25th & 26th June 2022

This children’s yoga teacher training course, with Jane Collins, will give you everything you need to be able to teach yoga to children in a wide variety of settings including schools.

The course is accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals.

Your tutor, Jane Collins, has been teaching children of all ages since 2006, she has tried and tested her methods many many times and she shares everything that works in this course, teaching in a way that is full of fun and very easy to absorb.

Jane will ensure that you take away practical skills in yoga storytelling and the delivery of games and yoga based activities, the knowledge you will gain is extensive, preparing you for teaching children from ages 3 to 12 years.

Course Prerequisites

To attend you’ll need 2 years minimum of attending yoga classes, and a passion for working with children.
Depending on people’s experience of working with children, it may be possible to attend the course with a little less yoga experience, but it is very important to be familiar with yoga postures so that you are able to demonstrate to the children effectively. You do not need to already have experience with children, but it helps.
You do not need to already hold an adult yoga teaching qualification. Teaching children is wildly different to teaching adults and the safe practices used in the method by Jane Collins are all covered in the course.

Course Structure

Each course is in two parts with a few weeks in between the two parts. This gives you a chance to absorb information from part one, and practice teaching, before returning to analyse and troubleshoot your experience, and learn all the rest of the things you need to know to become a really excellent kid’s yoga teacher.

And in addition to all that, we can guarantee that you will have a wonderful, hilarious time. One of our recent students said that she hadn’t smiled and laughed so much in a very long time. The courses are full of joy!

Course Price

Your investment is £590. This includes a manual and a very special resource pack. A payment of £100 will secure you space and is none refundable the balance of £490.00 must be paid a month before the course starts.

You should note that you’ll need public liability insurance, and a DBS to teach. We will discuss the various options for this on the course. Neither are included in the fee, but there are good value options for both and all the information needed to find those will be shared during the course. You may even already have both, depending on the field in which you currently work.
