Children today often find themselves in a state of high alert, operating in fight/flight or survival mode. When they're in this mode, logical thinking in the brain shuts down, breathing and heart rate quicken, and adrenaline increases, perpetuating the feeling of unsafely and the instinct for survival. These survival behaviours can manifest as defiance, avoidance, and disruption.

In our one-day CPD workshop, we delve into the intricate connection between behaviour challenges in children and their physiological responses to stress. As kids yoga teachers, it's crucial to comprehend the underlying causes of these disruptive behaviours and equip ourselves with effective tools to address them. Through a combination of theory and practical application, we explore how yogic practices can profoundly impact children's emotional regulation, cognitive function, and overall well-being.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Understanding Survival Mode: Gain insights into how prolonged exposure to stress triggers the body's 'survival mode' in children.

  • Neurobiological Effects: Explore the neurobiological implications of chronic stress on children's developing brains, including its impact on cognitive functions, emotional regulation, and physical health.

  • Yogic Approaches to Regulation: Learn specific yogic breathing techniques and movements that help reset the nervous system, promote relaxation, and foster a sense of safety and calm in children.

  • Practical Integration: Discover practical strategies for seamlessly integrating yogic practices into the school day, creating supportive environments that nurture emotional well-being and enhance learning readiness.

 

By the end of the workshop, you will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the underlying causes of behaviour challenges in children.

  • Acquire practical tools and techniques rooted in yogic principles to support emotional regulation and stress management.

  • Feel empowered to create nurturing environments that promote feelings of safety, calm, and readiness to learn.

  • Develop confidence in incorporating yogic practices into their teaching repertoire, fostering holistic well-being in the children they serve.

Your paragraph text (1).png

In the Hatha Yoga Pradapika (an ancient yogic text) it says;"When the Breath wanders, the mind is unsteady, but when the Breath is still, so is the mind still.”

What valuable information and tools will help us implement this important idea with children and teens?

In my work with children, teens and families over the past 20 years I have noticed the importance in the way of delivering breathing practices including the understating of the relationship between breath and stress.

 

If you are working with children and curious to know more about the many benefits of breath awareness and breathing practices, I would like to invite you to join me for a 1 day workshop and explore together with me the wonders of breathing.

This workshop will equip you with the tools and knowledge (research based) which will enable you to deliver breathing practices and breath awareness practices to children and teens while encouraging curiosity, enriching knowledge and inviting playfulness.

We will find creative ways to support children’s  and carers wellbeing through breath work by making the knowledge and the practices accessible both in your classes and in their daily life. 

This is an interactive, retreat style workshop, connecting together people who are excited and curious to learn about Breath.  There will be plenty of opportunities to share practices with one another, ask questions and experiment.

The workshop is delivered in an intimate manner at a magical garden studio in the N12 area in London and includes delicious vegetarian lunch.  

I keep numbers for the workshop low in order to allow space to work with individual needs.

 

All materials and props for the workshop will be provided on the day.

 

Upon completion of the workshop you will receive a certificate accrediting you with 5 CPD points.

This workshop is suitable for yoga teachers, children yoga teachers, occupational therapists, school teachers and other professionals who are working with children and have been practicing yoga themselves. 

A free monthly continue support is offered to all who participate in this workshop.
