Teen Yoga Teacher Training update
Last weekend saw me complete the Teen Yoga teacher training course with Charlotta Martinus, an inspirational yoga teacher, who has been sharing her knowledge with teens and improving their lives in Bath for many years. The group on the two weekend course consisted of many who are either already yoga teachers or school teachers with experience of yoga, all believing in the enormous benefits yoga can have for young people. The first part of the course covered lots of theory: anatomy and physiology of the adolescent, neuroscience and evidence based research on the effects of yoga. The second weekend was much more practical and we were able to learn from one another’s teaching techniques. Having already taught lots of teenage pupils I had much to share, yet it is so important as a teacher of anything to remember that you remain continually a student yourself, and I was able to develop and deepen my knowledge and skills, and compassion.
