Teaching Yoga & Mindfulness to Children & Teens

Since May 2022

Christiane Kerr is an amazing yoga teacher for all ages and is particularly brilliant with children and teens. Her use of mudras is something that sparked my interest and I’ll be doing more research into that topic.

Her course is full of a child’s/teen’s physical, emotional and hormonal development and endless inspiration for designing nuturing, mindful and holistic yoga classes for children and teens.

Christiane, I’m so grateful for you to share your knowledge and experience. I’m already keen on deepening my knowledge of mindfulness with your course offered later in 2022.

British Wheel of Yoga - Yoga Teacher Certificate (Level 4)

Since November 2023 (Regulated by the Office for Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual)

Finding a face-to-face teacher training near me and discovering such wonderful forces of yoga knowledge, appreciation for the spine and its movement as well as compassion for every person’s body – I could not have found better tutors than Kari Knight and Elaine Fletchter!

Thank you and my fellow teacher trainees to share this journey with me. I mostly wanted to take this course to underpin my children and teen teaching, but I must admit that I’m certainly catching the bug of sharing my joy of yoga with adults, too.

So far your course and your selection of fellow trainees has been incredibly valuable to my journey. I am full of admiration that you do what you do and how you do it. Your classes and guidance to transition to a yoga teacher is so helpful. Thank you!!
