Childrens Yoga Teacher TrainingInterested in teaching kids?
This certified children’s yoga training program was founded by spiritual teacher, Berdhanya Swami Tierra, in 2003 using a unique educational approach: creative, multidimensional, alive and very transformative. Our trained yoga teachers can attest to the uniqueness and richness of this uplifting training for parents and educators or anyone wanting to teach yoga to children and families. The training will give you new tools for holistic education, enrich your life and transform your inner growth. It has a strong creative, interactive approach that will require you to jump into the experience of the moment, experiencing your own unique voice and just like children, going deeper into your own innocent, natural self. We offer a 3-day training once a year and a second training over 6 weeks on Monday evenings at Berdhanya Teaching Center in Ottawa to give flexibility with varying needs of students. We also have “wheels” and can bring the training to your location and do training with special groups e.g. yoga studios, pre-school teachers, educators, etc. We can give out of town students suggestions for very reasonable accommodation close to the training center.

Be Me Be HereGreat for kids between 5-10 years of age.
This is a beginner yoga and meditation practice to build your child’s identity, to discover “Who Am I”. This practice is for children 5-10 years of age and it supports healthy emotional development, reduces stress and increases focus and gives a general sense of well-being and balance. Children whose five senses are bombarded in this hectic, stressful world discover their inner world, through their subtle nervous system, with this daily practice. They begin defining the way that they see their outer world and what skills to develop to deal with school, family and life challenges.
It does take some commitment for families to do a regular practice. However, the benefits far outweigh any time given to doing this 15-minute practice. If yoga is new to you and your family, try a couple of our yoga classes first and then consider this training. It brings amazing results for the whole family! With this empowering 6-hour course, you can support your children by establishing a daily routine using yoga, breath and meditation. The course is based on the book “Be Me Be Here” with a beautiful story along with visuals to inspire children. Berdhanya Swami Tierra wrote this book to help children understand where they are coming from and to understand their true nature. Parents are encouraged to do this practice with the child, until the child can do independently and consistently. Then, the next step is to build up to a consecutive 40-day practice. The first class is an orientation to the parents and the other five classes are with both children and parents.
