This November and February The Peaceful Warriors and Serenity Eco Guesthouse will be collaborating with Jeanne Welsh and two orphanage’s Jodie O'Shea House, Stella’s Child. Offering a 6 Day / 50HR Immersion & Teacher Training into Yoga and Mindfulness for Children and Youth. Our mission is to help kids thrive in the world regardless of circumstances, and navigate the many challenges they face with a sense of personal power and self awareness. Therefore we will be donating 15% of all our profits to Jodie O'Shea House and Stella’s child.
This 6-day / 50HR Immersion & Teacher Training on the magical island of Bali will cultivate your knowledge and understanding of children’s yoga, social emotional learning and creating resilient youth. A unique five element structure; Breathe, Move, Focus, Relax and Connect seamlessly integrates the best of yoga and mindfulness, to provide comprehensive content, create a predictable rhythm to programming, and support ease and consistency of implementation. We also incorporates the ethics and philosophy of traditional yoga and mindfulness, blending them with today’s curriculum requirements.
We delve into the world of anatomy and physiology, mental health awareness, mindfulness and meditation for children, classroom management, nutrition and healthy living, social and emotional development, group and partner poses, special needs, lesson plans and you also get to teach a hands on children yoga class. As you delve deeper into yourself as a yoga and mindfulness teacher for toddlers, children, teenagers and young people (including those with special needs.), your own yoga practice and inner child exploration will continue to deepen.
During this training we will also have a couple of Speciality Teachers joining the team and sharing their knowledge about; Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Self Love and Capoera. We you will also explore how to set up your own Yoga and Mindfulness for Kids and Teens business, how to contact schools and to use social media to grow and audience and build influence etc.
On the last day of the training we visit either Jodie O'Shea House or Stella’s child a Balinese orphanage, where you will get to use your new set of skills and practice teaching Yoga and Mindfulness to Kids and Teens. If you are interested in volunteering teaching Yoga and Mindfulness here in Bali after the training’s finished, please reach out and we are happy to assist you in arranging this.
This training is not just for Yoga Teachers. But for anyone who wants to make this world a better place. Parents, Teachers, Educators and Caregivers, anyone who wants to empower young minds to be in touch with their inner being; anyone who wants to empower young minds to be the best they can be. Anyone who wants to teach children to love who they are, Body, Mind & Soul. Invest in yourself in a way that would benefit children for years to come. ❤️

Fueled by the success of this whole school yoga and mindfulness implementation program, I have evolved with the intention to reach more schools, more educators, more parents, and more students. Together, we are changing education through the practice of mindfulness and yoga.
My hope is to give children tools to calm down, slow down and feel better when they are troubled. I sure wish I had these tools at my disposal when I was their age. Imagine if all the children around the Earth learned to use these tools during their childhoods. What a change our world would experience within just one generation.
