The training focuses on the uniqueness of sharing yoga to at risk youth within the school system. A huge part of this training will be experiential learning.
We spend the first two days learning about sequencing, engaging youth, practicing yoga and learning ways to make yoga philosophy accessible to youth. The rest of the week we explore the various Yoga program Yoga for youth as developed over the past 8 years.
We will spend time in schools and other community program where we teach yoga. Students will practice teach, observe yoga classes and connect with youth. We will learn about the unique barriers the youth at risk face, as well as systemic issues that we can address through our yoga practices and while living yoga. We will also spend time with learning from the wisdom of the first nations teachings.
