Who is this training aimed at?...What will I learn? ...and how will it increase my confidence?

Testimonial

Thank you again for such an inspiring day. I came home all fired up with loads of ideas. The children at school are very lucky indeed. There should be more Michael Chissick’s in the world

This Day is like NO OTHER because...
You will come into a primary school and observe me teaching yoga to EIGHT whole classes as part of the school day. In other words as part of the curriculum on the weekly timetable. 

The point is that you will be learning in the school environment with whole classes of real children. That is simply not possible on weekend courses. This training day is on a different level. The level of REALITY. 


The day is ideal for:
Educators like Primary & Special Needs Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Special Needs Professionals who practice yoga, who have personally experienced the benefits and want to bring yoga into school.

Also Yoga teachers and yoga practitioners with some experience of teaching yoga to children and who would like to improve and develop their teaching skills and approaches.

On the day you will learn how to:

Plan using simple, highly effective structures and strategies
Teach a range of the most popular children’s yoga postures
Improve your class and behavioural management skills
Teach the Sun Sequence in a variety of ways
Use yoga games to make lessons more fun
Increase children’s self esteem
Enhance pupils social skills
Guide children through child-centred relaxation & calming activities.

AND THERE'S LOTS MORE...In fact I guarantee that you will come away with enough activities and inspiring teaching approaches that will keep you going for months.


There are five ways that the day gives you the competence, skills and enthusiasm to teach yoga to children: 

1. You get to see first hand how to teach in school with real children
The best teacher training for children’s yoga takes place in the school environment working with children under the watchful eye of an experienced children's yoga teacher, because above all else you get to see and learn how to: 


  • IMPROVE YOUR CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT SKILLS TO HELP YOU WITH CHALLENGING BEHAVIOURS, and, 
  • TEACH UP TO 8 WHOLE CLASSES IN A DAY... SUCCESSFULLY

We believe this is the best and most practical way to enhance your confidence, to improve your class management skills and to enrich the content, structure and delivery of your lessons.

2. You will learn how to teach children from Early Years right through Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2 
You will learn how to teach the complete range of children from Nursery through Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. 
That is children aged from 4 to 11years old (average ages) i.e Nursery, Infants and Juniors.

This means that you will experience and develop appropriate teaching strategies for all the different age groups; which means you will be ready and able to teach any and all classes in primary school.
 

3. You will be the only learner on the day
You will be the only learner on the day and will, therefore, receive the benefit of 1:1 training, which means that you will have my undivided attention. 

This means that you will have more opportunities to engage in honest and constructive feedback and be able to discuss areas of your practice that you would like to improve.


4.You will have on-going support 
After your training day you will be entitled to on-going support. 
There will be times when you need support. It may be a behavioural issue, a safety issue or perhaps you have been asked by your school to link yoga to a specific curriculum area. 

Maybe you could just do with some encouragement. 

Whatever! I am here to give you ongoing support and encouragement whether by phone or email at no extra cost.



5. You can have more days when you need them. 
If you would like more training days that is fine. I can tailor days to suit your needs. 

For example you may want more training on classroom management ; or perhaps you have children with autism in your class and you need some practical help.

Or...

If you would like a more structured approach you may consider the three day course that leads you to the Yoga at School Certificate for Teaching Yoga to Children (YaSCTYC) Read More
