Aerial Flow Kids Teacher Training Course January 30 - February 1
Aerial Flow Kids is a fitness system specifically designed and adjusted to the needs of children, that combines Aerial Flow Yoga, Kids Yoga, Partner /Acro Yoga, theater games, music movement activities, drawing and the art of dance. In Aerial Flow Kids classes combining the benefits of all these and the dynamics of the infinite energy of children, the aerial journey begins in a fully secure environment. Everyone follows their own unique path and together we enjoy the multiple benefits of the practice.
The benefits of Aerial Flow Kids are well beyond flexibility and fitness, which undoubtedly are needed and practiced in classrooms. Children through playing they learn to listen and calm themselves, overcome phobias and anxieties, expand their limits both mentally and physically. Moreover, they get to know through a new perspective concepts like team, society, nature, air, joy, laughter, dreams.
An Aerial Flow Kids teacher should be an actor, dancer, painter, poet, singer, Yoga , Aerial Flow Yoga and Partner /Acro Yoga teacher, educator, juggler or nothing of the above! S/he should above all be a kid! So in this training we will look for the teacher within us, for the child who everyone keeps safely in their hearts and it is about time to offer to the kids!
