Proven breathing techniques for kids will be practiced along with a more in-depth look at how yoga has interacted in our lives to help us understand simple ways that yoga philosophy is full of universal principles and how to more consciously apply them in teaching.

We practice partner yoga for extra fun with kids in class and play some more games designed to enlighten and inspire, including the “Yes, and” game, a brief exploration into positive thinking.

And then we put it all into practice with a free GroovyKids™ Yoga demonstration class and afterwards we’ll hold up our class against our 7 Keys, and see how we did. Then we’ll know why we teach GroovyKids™ Yoga instead of just Kids yoga.

GroovyKids™ Yoga 15hr TT Dubai UAE

to Apr 8

GroovyKids™ Yoga 15hr TT Dubai UAE

After 7 sold out trainings and much joy and delight amongst the kids, Greville Henwood’s highly praised GroovyKids Yog Weekend Teache raining from Los Angeles marks 8th etur to Dubai and we would love to have you be part of it! 

As a trainee on the weekend intensive commencing on April 7-8, you’ll learn the GroovyKids™ Yoga Flow [45-60 minute] complete range of motion yoga class perfect for kids of all ages and abilities including music, movement, breath awareness and meditation. You’ll watch a live GroovyKids™ Yoga class and learn the 7 Keys to a successful GroovyKids™ Yoga class. You’ll also learn fun games that get you to reveal your own patterns of thought, study class sequenc and learn why, when and how to modify the sequence for almost infinite classes. You’ll see why the GroovyKids™ vision works for all kids of all abilities and cultures, from ages of 3-12 and sometimes even a little younger. 

Teaching yoga to children starting from the age of 3 is fundamentally one of the most important and vital areas to paving their way in creating a profound change in our world. And while any movement is beneficial, what distinguishes yoga from other sports is its non-competitive spirit. 
Yoga can provide them with beneficial lifelong tools to help them cope with daily stresses, navigate exams and deal gracefully with the increasing pressures placed upon them as they transition into adulthood.  

So much so, that the benefits of yoga for children raised great awareness towards XYoga Dubai 2016 in which I had the delight to share the practice to 5 year old Mohammed (known as @maj on Instagram) with Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan, as part of their XYoga campaign. Click - HERE - to watch the video. 

 

Kids don’t respond to shy teachers! So we start day 1 by integrating and going through creative and intellectual games designed to bring us 'teachers' out of our shells and break the proverbial ice.

Then we move onto who yoga is for, what the benefits are. Teaching kids yoga means you have to be on your toes, so we practice games and exercises that bring us fully present. We look at sequencing ideas and how we actually learn things, how we memorize them and why some things are easier than others to recall. We learn chants, songs, stories, yoga games and other things that all help make LEARNING & TEACHING a joyful experience.

After all the theory has been presented and explained, we go through the GroovyKids™ Yoga Flow ourselves, it’s very helpful for the teachers to do the actual class as learning from the inside out is far more PRACTICAL!

After looking at the various elements every successful Kids Yoga class must have, we invite kids to come and actually do a free Kids Yoga class led by Greville Henwood on the afternoon of day 2 from 2:45 - 3:45 pm. This is invaluable and the most fun part, because the teachers can immediately see for themselves theory in action. Once the kids have gone home, we break down the class and ask ourselves, did we accomplish what we set out to? And the answer is always YES!

After the live kids demo session, we move onto the foundation of the relationship-centered teaching and go deeper into the specifics, nuts and bolts of class-time, guidelines of sequencing poses and school standards for physical education to see how yoga fits in.

Specific breathing techniques will be practiced and a more in-depth look at how yoga has made an impact in our lives to help us understand simple ways that yoga philosophy is no different than any other, and how universal principles appear in yoga and how we can consciously apply these principles in our teaching.
 

We will look closer at how to modify classes as the age groups from 3-5 years old and 6-12 years old change and learn how to create a GroovyKids Yoga class accordingly.

GroovyKids™ Yoga 20 hr Teacher Training Baar, Switzezrland

GroovyKids™ Yoga Teacher Training is a 20-hour course that equips the student with everything they need to teach Kids Yoga! So much more than just yoga, this training looks at the different approaches to kids yoga, ways to engage the student, technical understanding of poses and how they can be sequenced together to create infinite classes for kids of all ages. We play games designed to reveal to you your intuitive vision of the world. It’s not always what you think! Together we’ll discuss ways to harness kids energy and enthusiasm. We look at ways to share yoga philosophically with kids and of course, how to learn new skills such as meditation that can help so much with stress as kids grow up. The training is very practical, interactive and fun. No experience is necessary, just a love of kids and/or a love of yoga!

Then we move onto who yoga is for, what the benefits are. Teaching kids yoga means you have to be on your toes, so we practice games and exercises that bring us fully present. We look at sequencing ideas and how we actually learn things, how we memorize them and why some things are easier than others to recall. We learn chants, songs, stories, yoga games and other things that all help make LEARNING and TEACHING a JOYFUL experience.After all the theory has been presented and explained, we go through the GroovyKids® Yoga Flow ourselves, it’s very helpful for the teachers to do the actual class as learning from the inside out is far more PRACTICAL! After looking at the various elements every successful Kids Yoga class must have, we invite kids to come and actually do a free Kids Yoga class. This is invaluable and the most fun part, because the teachers can immediately see for themselves theory in action! Once the kids have gone home, we break down the class and ask ourselves, did we accomplish what we set out to?

And the answer is always YES!!!!This training is certified as 10 hours with a contact C-RYT according to Yoga Alliance standards

We explore ways to do that and also look at how the poses can be changed for the older age groups. Again, younger bodies and minds need different stimuli for greatest benefit so we look at ways to equip the teacher so they can be confident! We include some discussion of teaching children with special needs, we look at some interesting studies and learn from their findings. Of course, we also play games! And another in depth look at sequencing and how it can be altered to suit the needs of the class.

Switzerland: GroovyKids® Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 & Level 2

to Apr 10

Switzerland: GroovyKids® Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 & Level 2

Level 1 Teacher Training is a 10 hour course which includes a discussion about the different approaches to teaching Kids anything, the LOGIC behind each approach and it’s effectiveness in different settings, be it in a dedicated yoga studio, a school, a small group class in a private home or even individual private classes.

Level 2 GroovyKids® Yoga Teacher Training is designed for the teacher who’s already completed the Level 1 training or who has already had experience teaching kids yoga. We discuss the ways that children of different ages learn as this changes considerably between the age groups. Traditionally the age groups are split up 3-6 and 7-11, so we aim to inform the teacher how kids think differently at each age. This is important in keeping a child’s mind occupied, perhaps the main challenge in teaching kids anything.

Duck, NC GroovyKids™ Yoga TT Level 1 and 2

Our first ever training in beautiful North Carolina!
Level 1 Teacher Training is a 10 hour course which includes a discussion about the different approaches to teaching Kids anything, the LOGIC behind each approach and it’s effectiveness in different settings, be it in a dedicated yoga studio, a school, a small group class in a private home or even individual private classes.
Kids don’t respond to shy teachers! So we play some games designed to bring us out of our shells and break the proverbial ice.
This part is INTERACTIVE and FUN! 
Then we move onto who yoga is for, what the benefits are. Teaching kids yoga means you have to be on your toes, so we practice games and exercises that bring us fully present. We look at sequencing ideas and how we actually learn things, how we memorize them and why some things are easier than others to recall. We learn chants, songs, stories, yoga games and other things that all help make LEARNING and TEACHING a JOYFUL experience.
After all the theory has been presented and explained, we go through the GroovyKids™ Yoga Flow ourselves, it’s very helpful for the teachers to do the actual class as learning from the inside out is far more PRACTICAL!
After looking at the various elements every successful Kids Yoga class must have, we invite kids to come and actually do a free Kids Yoga class. This is invaluable and the most fun part, because the teachers can immediately see for themselves theory in action! Once the kids have gone home, we break down the class and ask ourselves, did we accomplish what we set out to?
And the answer is always YES!!!!

GroovyKids™ Yoga Level 2 TT builds on the foundation of relationship-centered teaching we establish in Level 1 and we learn the specifics, nuts and bolts of class-time. In this 10-hour program we’ll cover the guidelines of sequencing poses and how they can be used endlessly creatively. We look at school standards for physical education and see how yoga fits in. 
Specific breathing techniques will be practiced and a more in-depth look at how yoga has interacted in our lives will help us understand simple ways that yoga philosophy is no different than many other, how universal principles appear in yoga and how we can more consciously apply them in our teaching. 
We will look closer at how to modify classes as the age groups change and will also create a class and teach it to some kids by offering a free GroovyKids® Yoga class, taught by the graduates. 
A discussion and some ideas about teaching to children with special needs will be included and we’ll play games that are designed to show us some interesting and enlightening things about the way we think and react! This part is interactive and fun!
It is obligatory, due to the unique content of the training, that the student has completed the GroovyKids™ Yoga Level 1 TT before the Level 2.

GroovyKids™ Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 and 2
January 23-24, 2016

Hours are Saturday and Sunday 9-6pm. There will be free GroovyKids™ Yoga classes both days from 4-5pm.
