Change from Within Training: Yoga for Youth involved in the Juvenile Justice System
From $395.00 to $595.00Sale
This training will give you a solid foundation for understanding adolescents' anatomical, physiological, and emotional development. It will also provide an introduction to the juvenile justice system and encourage you to get to know more about how the system operates in your community. And it will introduce tools and best-practices for adapting yoga for system-impacted youth and show you simple yoga practices that non-yoga teachers can implement.
The training consists of five parts:
Basics of adolescent development
Overview of the development of the teenage brain
Trauma and its effects on adolescents
Introduction to youth corrections and systems
Adapting yoga for system-impacted youth
Each part contains a guided primarily self-paced online lesson with curated reading, videos, podcasts, image galleries, and research assignments. Eachopic is supported by writing assignments to help integrate the content and provide opportunities for self-reflection.
