13 hour training courses
for yoga teachers,
Creative Relaxation® Training Courses are based on the books Yoga Therapy for Children with Autism and Special Needs and Classroom Yoga Breaks by Louise Goldberg. Creative Relaxation® may be used with all children, but the emphasis of the training will be teaching children with autism spectrum disorder, Asperger's, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, anxiety, and other special needs. In addition to educators, therapists and yoga teachers, the course is appropriate for parents who want to practice yoga with their children.
You will learn effective communication techniques and ways to maintain control and avert meltdowns. Creating a safe environment and the use of a visual curriculum are emphasized in this training. You will learn and practice teaching yoga postures and therapeutic routines for use in public schools, private sessions, and parent-child classes. Of course HAVING FUN will be a main focus!
