ChildLight Education Company is excited to announce their fall training schedule with a live, interactive, online format making it easy and accessible to earn a Yoga Teacher Training Certificate from anywhere. Focusing on the wellbeing of the entire family, ChildLight’s Yoga Alliance approved trainings include Yin (beginning September 17), Prenatal (beginning September 24), Yoga & Mindfulness for Children (beginning October 1), and Adult 200 Hour (beginning October 5), with additional course offerings focused on inclusive teaching for students with diverse abilities and those who’ve experienced trauma, appropriate methods for teaching yoga in schools, and more.
This past year and the isolation, uncertainty and anxiety of living through a pandemic has created a rise in mental health issues, especially amongst youth. Seeing the need for more education in this area, ChildLight Education Company added a Stress Reduction for Teens through Mindfulness training (November 5 - 7), and expanded their Trauma Informed Yoga & Mindfulness for Youth program (October 23 - 24), creating a two part training with certification. In the latter, participants will gain an understanding of types of trauma experienced by individuals and specific populations, along with potential triggers, and learn to instruct through a trauma informed lens that supports emotional resilience.
As a Registered Yoga School with Yoga Alliance, ChildLight Education Company offers a range of teacher trainings for all ages and abilities. Their 95 Hour Children’s Yoga Teacher Training (beginning October 1) focuses on developmentally appropriate yoga and mindfulness techniques for a variety of settings - individual, group, and classroom - and also includes specialized modules such as Yoga & Mindfulness for Diverse Abilities (November 12-14), EFT for Children and Teens (November 20), and others. Additionally, ChildLight offers a 200 Hour Registered Adult Yoga Teacher Training (beginning October 5), 85 Hour Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training (beginning September 24), and 30 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training (beginning September 17).
ChildLight Education Company is an approved provider of continuing education and professional development credits for several credentialing institutions including American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), Courses4Teachers, California Department of Rehabilitation, International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT), and more.
“We’ve heard from so many of our training participants, whether they are educators, yoga teachers, or therapists, about the toll that the ongoing coronavirus crisis has taken on their students,” says Megan Ridge Morris E-RYT 500, RCYT, RPYT, YACEP, CD, and co-owner of ChildLight Education Company. “Our expanded Trauma Informed Yoga & Mindfulness for Youth two part training gives them the tools to both identify and understand symptoms of trauma in their own students and safely teach an inclusive class, whether that be in-person or virtual.”
“We’re especially excited to offer additional programs that make yoga and mindfulness accessible to various ages and ability levels, such as our Yoga & Mindfulness for Diverse Abilities Training, Yin Yoga Teacher Training, 200 Hour Registered Adult Yoga Teacher Training, and Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, aligning with our mission to support the wellbeing of the entire family,” says Sally Delisle, E-RYT500, RCYT, YACEP, CD, and co-owner of ChildLight Education Company.
