Learn to Guide Meditation for Kids

"If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation." ~Dalai Lama

The I AM Yoga Nidra™ for Kids Training takes what you learned in the I AM Yoga Nidra™ training and applies the same principles and techniques to children. It is one of the only professional Yoga Nidra for Kids Certification trainings available in the country to date. The I AM Yoga Nidra™ for Kids Training will enable you to facilitate Yoga Nidra to children ages 5-teens, with suggestions on ways to use it with kids under 5. The program addresses the high stress level, pressure and demands of children in the world today and how Yoga Nidra can help. You will learn how it fosters their growth and development and gives them tools to help them navigate through the challenges in life at every age. Whether you are a parent, teacher, counselor, therapist, child psychologist, caregiver or childcare provider, this training will enable you to give the greatest gift to the children...the gift of knowing they always have a way to help themselves.
