Many teachers “fly without radar”, so to speak, when it comes to teaching yoga to teenagers. This is no surprise as specialized trainings for this group are not widespread. It was the case for me when I started teaching yoga to teenagers 13 years ago. I’ve come a long way since those early days of bewilderment teaching yoga to teens.
Since meeting my co-author, Jennifer Lightsey, in 2002 and lots of experience teaching teenagers later, I’ve come to learn the importance of classroom skills and the value of modifying typical yoga teaching for this group. It’s a lot more fun and rewarding with some teaching skills and specialized knowledge.
