Rohan Yoga Education
Rohan in Sanskrit means Ascending.
Us from Yoga Muni, as yogins and spiritual beings, we believe in the Kundalini energy; described by a sleeping serpent lying at the base of the spine waiting to be awakened.
Meaning that everyone has the potential to arise once encouraged towards it… Which is exactly what yoga is about: bringing one’s energy into the right place.
As kids are so lively and active, it’s very important to draw that energy into productive activities. By giving them the gift of yoga at such young age – when they can learn a lot easier and practice without fear; they will be able to focus and perform better at school, improve their sports endurance and eating habits. Not to mention their self esteem and awareness will improve, the relationship with family and friends and mostly the wellbeing within themselves that Yoga brings.
And this is what this project is about…
- What is it?
Rohan Yoga Education is a NGO which aims to teach yoga for kids between 6-15 years old studying in state schools around the world.
- What about it?
It is a project from all of us but guided and idealised by Dipa Trivedi, mom of two young kids and Iyengar Yoga teacher.
This is an online and self taught training, which means you can do on your own time.
- Who is it for?
The training is for everyone with the desire and motivation to teach kids yoga, meditation and to be a support for their development. You don’t have to be a professional teacher – what matters the most is the will to learn.
- What is involved?
A closed Facebook group among the students where you can ask, share experiences and relevant material to our community.
There will be online videos with yoga sequences, meditations, and podcasts on teaching techniques which the students can learn and practice at home.
- How much does it cost?
All the training is provided for free as the prospective teachers should teach for free at the state schools as well.
The idea of this project is to bring together motivated and enthusiastic people to add up to our team and make a difference in such an important phase of these kids lives.
