    “This course is amazing! I wish I had taken it before I started teaching kid's yoga. Not only does it cover ever single challenge I faced in my first round of teaching kid's yoga classes, but it also addresses the emotions of failure and incompetence that I felt after ineffectively dealing with those challenges. Thank you SO much for this course. I am reinspired to start teaching again! Jaime is truly the best! ”

    “After taking Jaime's Kids Teacher course, this class truly provides the extra tools to take your class to the next level! I loved the additional tips on how to prepare for a class and memorize an entire yoga story. I don't think I have the best memory but after following her "Class Blueprint" I feel like I can quickly learn almost any story now! It was also wonderful to see her typical class structure including fun yogi-games and the "Golden Rules" which I can't wait to incorporate into my kids classes! In addition, the section that addresses behavioral challenges during kids classes was priceless! Jaime offers amazingly positive solutions for almost any distraction that could occur during class! This course really helped me identify the roles that we play as a kids yoga instructor and the meaning behind why we show up to teach. I highly recommend this course! The friend in me thanks the friend in you, Kati Thompson”

    “This course was really helpful and also reassuring. I have been teaching yoga to children for nearly three school terms now and every single example Jaimie gave in this course I have seen in my sessions (apart from the child vomiting, thank goodness!). This course has given me a few more ideas to add to my arsenal but it has also reassured me that however bad the session has gone, looking back, I was deploying the right techniques, I just need to refine them which of course only comes with experience. This course was exactly what I needed right now. It has renewed my confidence in myself and in my ability to share my love of yoga with the children who come to my sessions.”

Manage behavioural challenges before they happen.
Be ready to resolve them if they do.

TOOLS AND SKILLS TO MAKE TEACHING KIDS YOGA FUN, EASY AND SATISFYING

  • Resolve common class challenges quickly

    Equips the learner with a wide range of behaviour hacks, agreements and in-the-moment tricks to ensure a stable atmosphere in your class. From what to do when someone wants to go to the bathroom through to how to resolve persistent defiant behaviour.

  • Enjoy excellent interactions with the kids

    We explore what makes children WANT to do yoga with a teacher. How can we move towards them (especially the kids who are being difficult) and develop the sort of trust that is needed to make the yoga a natural thing for them to do?

  • Build your awareness of what's happening for YOU in class

    Helps kids yoga teachers deepen their awareness of what happens in pressure moments in the classroom - and shares techniques for bringing ourselves back to being resourceful quickly. We also explore INTENT - and discover how understanding this can create powerful authentic experiences for you and the kids.

Ensure a stable atmosphere in your class

POWERFUL TECHNIQUES I USE IN EVERY CLASS

  • The Class Blueprint I prepare before each class

  • How to get the kids from the door and onto the mat ready to do yoga

  • The 3 Golden Rules I agree with every group which govern how we behave.

  • The Three Hats - how to adapt your style from Parent, to Teacher to Entertainer, depending on what’s going on in the room

  • Learn how to 'Be More Interesting' than whatever is distracting the kids!

What to do when these things happen:

BASIC BEHAVIOUR HACKS

  • a child decides they don’t want to take part or tells you they're bored!

  • a child wants to go to the bathroom, and then they all do!

  • someone wants the attention to be on them instead of you and the yoga

  • someone doesn’t want to settle down into relaxation

As much as anything, this is about YOU

THEN WE GO A LITTLE DEEPER

  • Learn how to stay in state even when things really kick off in class (it happens!)

  • Develop news skills in building rapport - the secret to good relationships with students

  • Learn how to deploy The Raygun of Love - your special secret weapon for unlocking good behaviour in kids who are being defiant

  • Learn how understanding your intent is the real secret to making sure you get what you want from a class - and how the kids will sense what you're trying to do anyway
