The Club Yoga training came to me at a perfect time. Amanda is an open, connected teacher who through leading, exploration and meditation has give me great insight into my personal practice, my role as a mother and as a psychologist working with children. This is such a gift for me.
I began my journey with Club Yoga as a volunteer, and knew immediately that I wanted to be part of the Club Yoga teaching team. The Teacher Training has enriched me on so many levels; it has allowed me to deepen my own personal yoga practice while learning how to develop fun and engaging yoga classes for children and their families. Having been on the Club Yoga Teacher Training journey, I can now bring yoga into the daily lives of the children I teach in elementary school classrooms. The teachers, resources, and practical experience have been invaluable and life-changing.
I did children's yoga when I was young. I learned so much about how to breathe properly and how to enjoy simple stretches and how my body reacts to it. I recommend it to everyone, especially kids that have a hard time focusing.
I completed this Club Yoga course January 9th – 12th 2017 .This 18 hours child yoga course conducted very professionally by Yoga Teacher Trainer Anamda Sly . My personal experience as a educator with children is that in the few minutes of meditation at the beginning of a class helps them become calmer and focus on the work period. During my yoga training, I noticed that different elements of Yoga teachings takes parallel paths with Montessori Education for younger children. Therefore, I have a strong feeling that a period of Child Yoga will bring tremendous balance and flexibility in better performance and discipline not only during class, but also for the personal growth of these younger children. I therefore, am very happy that I took this course where I can practice with children and observe its best results.
Vir, my 11-year old son, has been doing weekly private lessons with Anamda Sly for the last two academic years. Vir is a spirited boy who struggles to manage symptoms of ADHD and Development Coordination Disorder (DCD). After just one year, Vir’s teachers remarked that they were observing increased facility in focusing on classroom work. Moreover, we saw him integrating and employing breathing strategies and meditation into his daily life in order to better control his impulsiveness and emotions.
Vir enjoys and looks forward to his weekly classes with Anamda. He has developed a trusting relationship with her and values her suggestions and advice. I believe that this has enabled Vir to integrate his yoga practices with mindfulness and increased confidence.
I feel like being a child again whenever I am with a Club Yoga class. I feel free to be curious and to discover, and to be open, just like an innocent child. The energy of the Club Yoga class and training is liberating and penetrating. Thank you
I thoroughly enjoyed tapping into my child’s energy and to walk that fine line between learning as an adult and participating as a child. It’s been quite the learning journey for me. Many thanks!
An incredible gift of of insight and self-empowerment! I am enjoying greater clarity and well-being, Namaste Anamda and Berdhanya.
I enrolled in the program to learn how to engage children in the practice of yoga. I ended up also reawakening the child in me that likes to be silly, imaginative and energized. Club Yoga training helped me reawaken the joy.
Thank you for helping me to move forward to introduce children to yoga and to work with children in a way that is fun and provides long term benefits.
