Teen Yoga Teacher Training

Do you feel passionate about the well-being of young people? Would you like to support young people perform better in school? Would you like our future generation to have more satisfying relationships and develop a robust toolbox of coping strategies towards emotional resilience through specific yoga and mindfulness techniques? Then this is the training for YOU!

Join our *60 hours Teen Yoga teacher training program in Abu Dhabi from April 9-13, 2020 for a 5 day workshop hosted by the founder of Teen Yoga, Charlotta Martinus.

This course will help you develop a full understanding of how to teach yoga and mindfulness to adolescents aged 11 to 18, with a special focus on the 13 to 15 age group as this can be the most challenging time, developmentally, in working with teenagers.

This course comes with a fully comprehensive manual written by expert teachers in various areas. It is designed to build your confidence and fill in the gaps of knowledge, looking at the infinite and classic wisdom of the philosophy of yoga for inspiration and blending it with present cutting edge research and science to give us a full picture of how best to approach this population with the healing science of yoga. At the end of this course you will feel completely confident to run a course, either intra-curricula or ex-curricula.

The aim of the course is to give you an insight into how to adapt your yoga into a therapeutically specific system for issues and challenges that may arise commonly among this population such as: self-harm , early pregnancy, young carer situation, victim of abuse, victim of bullying, stress derived from academic or family pressure, general non-specific somatisation or general anxiety. A normal yoga class is seldom enough to really address any problems that may be arising among a normal young population. Kids’ yoga is also worlds away from what is needed in a class for teenagers.

The course will also provide students with a toolbox of class structures and techniques to teach young people flexibility, strength, emotional stability, self-esteem and an overall sense of well-being through the yoga practice.

You will be required to do some reflective homework after each day, and your teaching will be assessed for certification.

5 day course from 9am to 5pm will consist of the following:

  • Day 1 - Psychology and sociology of the adolescent and its relevance to yoga

  • Day 2- Anatomy and physiology of the adolescent and relevance to yoga postures and breathing

  • Day 3 - Neuroscience of yoga and adolescence and how they correlate
