What our graduates say...
"I really enjoyed the course, it met all of my expectations and was delivered in a really clear, calm and nourishing way. I feel confident to start my own yoga classes and well supported for the future. I can't wait to get started!"
"This has been a hugely empowering experience that's provided invaluable learning in a way that's been immensely inspiring and even healing and restorative. It was clearly structured, well rounded and promoted independent thought too, not just learning by rote. It was perfect, I cannot thank you enough"
"The course was extremely well paced and covered everything you need to know with practical demonstrations of the poses, age-relevant games, how to structure classes and earn income. I was nervous about doing the course but shouldn't have worried. It was inspiring, relaxing and very enjoyable"
"The training weekend was an incredible experience. Before it was a mixture of excitement and terror! But what you do is fantastic, your course is fantastic and the way you teach is fantastic. You're such a natural teacher and the course included so much inspiring advice. The words during the savasnas tapped in to my life so perfectly and I just want you know how deeply they affected me. I can't wait to begin teaching yoga to children, thank you!"
"This course is perfect for people like me who enjoy yoga but are not already a qualified instructor. All of my worries about learning the techniques and poses were quickly alleviated. It also went far beyond learning just physical poses to cover other aspects like promoting talk and having fun as part of confidence building and to benefit the mind. It was very inspiring and clearly taught."
"I really appreciated the care, attention and feedback provided by Jess during and after the course. It means such a lot to know that this really is the right path for me. I’ve just booked three yoga teaching jobs this week so as of next week I will be running three classes a week with hopefully more to follow! Thanks again for being a truly wonderful teacher. I feel so lucky to have been taught by you."
Emily, Chervil, Berks
"This has been an excellent course. Jess is a wonderful, experienced teacher. It was very clear and it was great working in different groups while experimenting with different themed classes. I love the books and flash cards and it turns out I needn't have worried about having to be super flexible!"
Case study of a new teacher:
"I started practicing yoga a number of years ago initially as a way of finding some inner calm. It worked, and through yoga my flexibility, strength, coordination and body awareness also improved.
My motivation to teach kids yoga is to share with them all that yoga has given me. I feel that now more than ever children need to learn how to improve their physical and mental wellbeing and that yoga is a great tool they can use to help with this.
The whole Children Do Yoga programme was incredible from start to finish. I learned everything I needed to set up and run my own children’s yoga classes. The organisation from booking it through to the homework was excellent. The course venue was stunning. The course materials, the books, and handouts, are of a very high standard.
The aftercare and ongoing support from Jess was amazing too, and after graduating I set up Yo!Kids through which I now teach children in a forest school setting, in addition to primary schools, a leisure centre and a community centre in and around the Whitstable area where I live.
I love teaching children yoga because the classes are always lots of fun, the children enjoy yoga as much as I do and by the end of class the children leave happy, relaxed and calm.
The children in my classes love the Children Do Yoga format I use and also the amazing books, pose cards and games. I would recommend this training to anyone who wants to become a children's yoga teacher."
