MINDFULNESS FOR STUDENT LEADERS
The leadership yoga course is a 6 week session offered to students leaders in the school community. This program is designed to teach the leaders of the school to use yoga tools and strategies for themselves, with the option to take their learning back into their classrooms to educate their peers.
Leadership Yoga has a tiered structure and has plenty of room for growth beyond basic yoga poses and mindfulness. Each school can customize their program based on needs and time allowances. The Levels below are examples of how a program can be led and taught to student leaders.
Mindfulness & Yoga for Leaders is a basic mindfulness and/or yoga class for all student leaders in the school to take for personal growth
Mindfulness & Yoga for Teaching Leaders is a mindfulness and/or yoga
class that teaches the leaders of the school to teach yoga to their classmates,
teachers, and family members (prerequisite: Yoga for Leaders)
Mindfulness & Yoga for Teaching Groups is an advanced mindfulness and/or yoga class that teaches the student leaders how to teach to a large group of people. This course is designed to teach students all the techniques and strategies they will need to know to teach larger groups of people. During their first teaching, student leaders will be supported by a member of the Peaceful World Yoga staff. Such programs have shown success in developing quality leadership skills and relationships. Students who learn Yoga and Mindfulness skills are provided vital skills and have the opportunity to "Practice for the Real World" as we like to say. These "real life" skills are easily integrated into Boy and Girl Scouts Troops, Family Gatherings, church or other community meeting places, School Assemblies. This list is endless!
Mindfulness and Yoga Leaders Lead the Training is another advanced course where student leaders plan and design the mindfulness and/or yoga teacher training for the Mindfulness & Yoga for Teaching Groups. The student leaders are supported by a Peaceful World Yoga staff member, but they decide the sequence, poses, games, partner poses, and activities that will be taught during THEIR class! This is an empowering program that allows students to shine.
