Yoga for Physical Education Teachers
We all know that yoga has many benefits. Because it is a lifetime physical activity, it should be a component of the Physical Education Curriculum. It is something that all students can do, and it is something that all students need.
Learn how to implement yoga into your Physical Education Curriculum by participating in Yoga for Physical Education Teachers. Created by an RYT200 veteran Physical Education Teacher, this one-day training includes breath work, poses, sample yoga games, and activities. Upon completion, you will have the tools, skills, and knowledge to teach your students the basics of yoga. Not only will you learn how to make yoga fun and adaptable for all, but you will be able to create your own yoga lesson plans to fit the needs of your students.
