Why Kids Yoga Teacher Training?

Believe it or not, I never did yoga before in my life! Well, not until I was introduced to antenatal yoga at my local gym when I was pregnant with Ethan. Having a big bump and all, I came at peace with myself with the things I can and/or cannot do during my pregnancy. I gave up my high maintenance exercise and devour myself into a weekly antenatal-yoga schedule. I felt good, I felt strong, and even more so I felt I have control in breathing control – which proved to be valuable on the day of Ethan’s arrival.

Thereafter, I continued into postnatal yoga where Ethan was able to join in too.

Ethan at 7 months old.

 

Unfortunately, after we moved out of London, I stopped doing it altogether. I had a newborn at hand and Ethan has turned into an extremely highly charged energy extrovert child – it proved to be a little overwhelming for me to do anything at all at that stage. He was shouty and loud. He found it hard to keep still for a even a minute or so. He just want to jump around all the time. And most of all, he found it hard to listen to me. I just can’t seem to connect with him.

Then one day we came across a kids yoga class nearby. Ethan was the only one there. I was rather surprised that there were no others. But on the plus side, it meant he was getting an 1-2-1 attention. I sat at the sideline breastfeeding Evelyn, and was a little anxious of “what if” scenarios playing into my head. What if – he decide to just spends all his session running around the room aimlessly. What if – he decide to just give up without even trying and went into a strops and walked out. What if – he decide to stop to listen and starts shouting at the teacher. These things were going around my head as I tried to cradle Evelyn to sleep.

 

Then something magical happens, Ethan didn’t run around. Somehow the teacher managed to grab his attention and just get on with the yoga at hand. I just couldn’t believe my eyes. How can this highly-energy charged child can become so clam and collected. I was amazed that he actually LISTEN! How can this be the same child? Is this the same Ethan. I was so overwhelmed – I nearly cried with joy. I was so impressed with the session and decided to go back to only discovered that his teacher has moved away. So that was the end of that journey. If only… I can become a kids yoga teacher too.

Fast forward to 2017, I saw Yoga Teacher Training with Kidding Around Yoga (KAY) advertisement on Facebook and I knew instantly that this is for me.

Meet Your Trainer: FELICE & the course

Kidding Around Yoga Teacher Training | Review

Felice started practicing Yoga over 15 years ago. In stressful times Yoga was her tool to relax and refocus. Teaching Drama classes to children and getting in touch with all the kids around her, she realised how much they need the same. Yoga gives everyone, adults and children a unique way to achieve empowerment, self awareness, confidence and peace of mind. But everyones approach to the treasure within oneself varies. Kidding around Yoga is a fun and rewarding path to lead children to mindfulness, peace and joy.
… 
Felice love to share what Yoga gives to her and to encounter every Yoga-student individually in her class.
 … 
Let’s be honest here, I think she is my new heroine! You’ll find out why later – keep on reading! 🙂
 … 

The KAY Teacher Training Course:

… 
Prior to the course, you are given four modules – you’d need to complete the first two modules in your own time before your start the practical weekend sessions. The first two modules introduced you to the many tools that you can use at your lessons and then the last two practical modules gives you the opportunities to practice as a group, plus a FREE Public Family Yoga class – where you can take all your learnings and implement them at the class.
 … 
Some of tools include: loads of KAY music, Bag of Tricks, Stress Management, The Science of Yoga, Yoga & Salutation Poses, Yog-Arts and Crafts, and many more. Don’t worry – if you won’t understands them – Felice will go through everything with you on the two days intensive weekend.
…

 … 
Some of my favourite from the Bag of Tricks were the ropes (picture above) and the “talking stick” – where everyone takes turn and incredibly everyone was open to about talking about anything and everything. This is one the resources we can use as a KAY Teacher to help children talks about their day or something that is bothering them at hand.

 … 

We seem to think Yoga is all slow and motionless – until you hear – “The Yogi Shake” Music. This was so fun! I haven’t had this much fun for ages! It really is about shaking and adding a yoga pose within the music. “When we shake we begin to take a simple and natural form of medicine – movement and laughter. That is it… movement and laughter, which results in euphoria and smiles; a part of our body and soul that gets put away in the closet and not brought out enough to ‘wear’. Let’s make a conscious effort to ‘wear’ our smiles every day. They do, after all, look absolutely amazing on all of us. Now go out there and SHAKE IT UP!”  You can check out their video here: The Yogi Shake.

 …  

As part of the course, you will also learn the marketing side of things as well; how you can start up; what you need when you start up; ways hosting a lesson – not just or kids, but also for birthday parties or corporates family events too; who to talk to – other KAY networks and other relevant networks as such; and any relevant further training if you wish to continue to the next level. There are supports everywhere!
…  
 … 

KAY Teacher Training Course Venue:

 … 
The training takes place at a studio near Liverpool Street Station in London call Prana Yoga Space. This may seem a little cosy at first as the session hosted 11 people in a 5x5m2 cubical box shape. But actually it was a really good settings as it means there were a lot of engagement and interactions flying around. I was nervous at first, but within an hour I was chatting away and doing the Yogi Shake of course. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I’ve made so many good friends and we are of course still keep in touch on our KAY London Facebook Group.  Plus you get fresh cup of herbal tea too – and that’s always a plus! ..

My apology about the quality – the background noises and the pictures aren’t very clear, but I think you get the idea.

Before this course, I hadn’t realised how much teaching Kids Yoga means to me and how much I am really passionate about it. I must say I really do love my job as I hope I can inspires others too.

    This sounds fab, I wish there was something like this local to me x

    Su, this is amazing! I love yoga, and had to give it up after years and years – last surgery for neck, back and doc said, NO MORE. Boo! This looks so fabulous, and amazing how Ethan gravitated to this. Congrats and rock on! Namaste #fabfridaypost xoxo

    This is lovely! I started doing yoga around and after my pregnancy too and it made such a difference to my mind and body. Never thought of doing it with the toddler though. What a delightful idea. I bet she would enjoy it. I must try this with her #FabFridayPost xx

  4. 10/10/2017 / 1:22 pm

    This looks fab. I’d love to start more yoga or pilates to work on my flexibility as although I train hard at the gym I’m not that flexible and at 34 it would be nice to master the splits!! 🙂 #twinklytuesday

    • 10/10/2017 / 8:39 pm

      Kids Yoga is a little different. It’s more about enjoying yoga with kids and don’t over stretch yourself. Even though I’m with you wanting to be able to do the splits! lol! xx

    Surprising I have never tried yoga!! The impact it had on Ethan when he was young was epic! #FabFridayPost

    Ah this is fab! I started yoga through my pregnancy and I’m taking the baby to yoga when he’s here too!

  8. 11/10/2017 / 2:42 pm

    This looks fab and well done for doing the course. I did yoga years ago and when I was pregnant and it is wonderful! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday and

  11. 13/10/2017 / 10:53 am

    This is so great Su, well done. I did yoiga a few times before I had the kids when I worked at the newspaper and my friend had interviewed a yoga teacher. Then I started doing some at home but never really got back into it. This is a great giveaway will tweet it now. Sarah #FabFridayPost

      Thank you Sarah. Interesting. I’m thinking of starting a Yoga Teacher Interview as well.. but not quite sure how to go about it yet. I need to think about that one. I think you’ll be a great Kids Yoga Teacher too. Do enter! & Good Luck! 🙂 xx

    Wow, that looks great, we don’t really have anything like that here. Brilliant activity though. We do majorettes, that is definitely not relaxing! lol #FabFridayPost

  13. 13/10/2017 / 3:54 pm

    Hi Su! I’m tuning back in to the blogging world again after a trying summer. Great to see your smiling face again!

    GOOD FOR YOU for taking on such a valuable venture! Like you, my yoga experience has been virtually non-existent, but both of my parents attend classes regularly and rhapsodize about them.

    I can’t think of many young children who wouldn’t benefit from slowing down and learning all of the great skills that come from yoga but can be applied in so many other ways.

    I look forward to following your journey! xx

      Hi Carolina,

      & Welcome back! It’s always lovely having you here. Thank you for your lovely compliments. You are too kind.

      Wow! Hats off to your parents. My kids have definitely benefit from this. & I think it is more of a benefit to me than the kids actually. I learn how to take a breath when I am getting all worked up by them. lol!

      I’m very excited about this new adventure. 🙂 xx

    This sounds amazing! I will have to see if there is something like this here in the states. My now 5 year old used to love doing yoga with me when I was pregnant with my second. I need to get back into it. :/ Thanks for sharing on the #fabfridaypost!

    How fun! My boys and I took a yoga class together a year or so ago. I was really hoping they’d love it and we could make it a weekly thing but while they did well with the class they just did not seem to get any sort of satisfaction out of it.

    So lovely to read this. Finding something you love and something which helps others is a wonderful thing. I don’t know much about yoga but, as a carer for my home educated disabled son, I think I would benefit from taking it up.

      Yes, I agree with you. It is a wonderful. I’ve interviewed one of the attendees there and they are too taking it to help for son with disabilities of his movement. It is such a wonderful use of yoga skills. Do enter as yes yoga definitely does help toward physical and mental disabilities all round. Good Luck! xxx

    Stopping back again to say Namaste to you, Su. This is such a good thing that you are doing. I wish I could do it too! If you get a chance, read the book, How Yoga Works. It is written in the form of a parable, and it is absolutely wonderful. It also greatly helps your daily yoga and life in general. Happy weekend! #fabfridaypost xoxo
