  • Practice and teach all 8 Limbs of Yoga, including poses (asana) and breathing (pranayama)
  • Understand and use age-appropriate and safe forms of yoga, including games and related activities, to engage youth physically, emotionally, and mentally
  • Modify lessons for various audiences and age groups
  • Learn, practice and weave multiple intelligences and tween/teen-based developmental theories into your yoga classes
  • Use yoga for kids as a means to teach tools and techniques to empower audiences to respond mindfully rather than react irrationally
