The Yoga Calm Practicum is an online portfolio course designed to give teachers, counselors and therapists and other adults that work with youth a supervised practical application of Yoga Calm activities and methods.
This course includes practice teaching, lesson planning, video observation of Yoga Calm Instructor’s classes and personalized coaching. It’s a powerful way to learn, as you will get real-world experience applying Yoga Calm, combined with individualized support.
The Practicum’s unique design will help you deepen your knowledge and develop your ability to teach self-regulation, attention, integrative movement and social/emotional skills development activities to youth (Pre-K to grade 12) .
