Kidz Yoga-Australia is here in Manila to conduct on a 4 day yoga training for teachers, this will benefit the teacher on how to do yoga and also get a certificate as a yoga teacher for kids.
Participants will be given a training manual, pose cards, lunch and snacks, training shirt, use of the Kidz Yoga logo for a year, name on official website. Any teacher can join and its okay if you haven't tried yoga, because you'll also learn the basics here in the training program.
Not exclusive for teachers, but the training program is open also to parents, yoga teachers, therapist, doctors, counselors are anyone who wants to learn yoga for kids and be one of the future yoga teachers for kids here in the Philippines.
I didn't know that yoga can be taught to kids, I have witness it for the first time during the blog conference and I saw that lots of kids are already into yoga. I read the benefits of yoga for kids and I agree that this will help them have more focus and concetrate, which kids really needs because sometimes they are always hyper. hahaha like my 3 year old son, Ashton.
I read an article about the benefits of yoga for kids, and let me list here..which I totally agree.
1. Maintains flexibility and strenthens growing bodies
2. Enhances concentration
3. Increases self-esteem
4. Teaches present moment awareness
5. Cultivate a peaceful, relaxed state of body and mind
6. Gives tools for stress management
7. Sparks creativity in ripe imaginations
8. Encourages kind peer and social interactions
9. Enhances body awareness
10. Teaches discipline and responsibility.
I super like the number 10.. And when I saw how Kidz Yoga-Australia do yoga for the kids, I saw that their versions are much more fun for the kids and also fun for the parents to see their kids do yoga for the 1st time. I told the yoga kids teacher that day that I found it more easy and more enjoyable. I hope they have versions for adults ahhahaa.
As of now..we’re looking for a possibility that we might enroll our son for yoga class soon.

and now.....its the start of yoga for kids……
This is just a teaser and demo on how Kidz Yoga-Australia and Kids One Yoga teaches kids on doing yoga, my son Asthon is a bit puzzled and excited for this activity, he just observed and imitates the movements and also listens to the yoga teacher.
This is his first time and he is the youngest kid in the room.
Btw… the yoga session was done in a function room, the outdoor venue of Palm Country Club got soaked wet after a heavy down pour.
Although a bit delayed…Ashton can follow some yoga moves
After one movement…he just follow the recent yoga position.
Ashton can’t stand up and balance with one feet, so he always falls down when he do this yoga position.
Here’s the fun yoga move for kids
The yoga teacher tells a story and then the kids will follow the yoga position and will start imagining some things based on the story telling.
relax….relax..and hug your stuffed toy pet
Ashton easily listens and follow the yoga teacher’s command…. he started to relax
and then fell asleep hahahahahah
when I saw that he flips on the side…it means he is sleepy.
Yoga session nearly ends…
stretching….and touch the sky
touch and wiggle your feet…
holding hands….while touching the feet hahaha..
My son is good at this position…
flips down like a flower and smile to the camera!
Yogini, parents, kids and bloggers
Congratulations to my son for his first yoga session
