Yoga Calm® Instructor Training
Children need more than the three Rs
Educating youth today requires a new approach – one that effectively meets their physical, mental and emotional needs, and those of their parents and other adults who work with them, including school teachers, counselors and therapists.
New research validates what we have intuitively known for years: reducing students’ stress, developing their social/emotional skills and enhancing their sense of well-being can benefit both their health and their academic performance.
Yoga Calm courses distill this latest research and more than 35 years of school teaching, counseling and yoga and mindfulness experience into practical, easy-to-teach methods that work with a wide range of students, including those with ADD/ADHD, anxiety, autism and other behavior disorders.
