On the weekends of September 19 – 20th and September 26 – 27th I completed a Yoga Teacher training for Kids through Rainbow Yoga . I hope to incorporate what I learned into my counseling practice one day. Movement therapy – well, this is what I call it, – is important for children of all ages, with all types of needs, to learn basic life skills, to build confidence within themselves, to understand their bodies and emotions, and to love themselves and others with compassion. Yoga for Kids is also great for families, and teaching to become a cohesive whole – with fun! Learning communication patterns unconsciously.
I found the path of Yoga through my own intuition for my own development, and over time, I found I can help others as well. My heart has always been with working with children and families, and when I found Rainbow Yoga and the Online teacher training, I took it as a sign and went for it. I do not regret it ❤

“Rainbow Yoga is all about connection; connecting to yourself, to the world and to the people around you. Connecting in all of those ways changes the world!
“We are social animals and we crave connection. We want to feel that we belong, we don’t want to be lonely. We want to touch, to share, to give and receive love. That’s what Rainbow Yoga is all about!
“The yoga we create is communal, interactive and fun!
“Rainbow Yoga celebrates life and brings people together! The old paradigm of yoga is practicing on your own, on your own individual yoga mat, for your own self-realization and for your own self development, whether physical, mental or spiritual.
“The new paradigm that we present is social yoga. Instead of contracting and going within to plug into life and find happiness, we expand to connect and weave into everything around us. This creates a real sense of aliveness. We thrive as we grow and open to a life and yoga that is much more fulfilling.
“In Rainbow Yoga we connect with touch, we massage, we hug, we dance, we move together. We co-create the class in a magical way that creates a playful space for everybody to feel loved and nurtured.” – Rainbow Yoga Founders: Angel & Gopala Amir Yaffa
There are in person and online study options and teaching/class options on the website: rainbowyogatraining.com there is also Partner Yoga too on the website.
Furthermore, Movement therapy like Yoga, may help individuals experiencing or who have experienced trauma of any form. We must get to know our bodies before we can talk about our feelings or memories associated traumatic events. Everything starts with a breath. One, long, deep breath is all it takes to begin the process of knowing ourselves – internally and physically – and this can be taught to children and families as well.
Also, Kids Yoga, can just be for fun and play!
