Teen Yoga online, is a rich and thorough 10-week online course with plenty of live interaction and continuous contact with your tutor. The course certifies you to teach yoga and mindfulness to teenagers and is accredited by Yoga Alliance US. Devised with the help of specialist adolescent Neuroscientists, Anatomists, Psychologists, Educators and Yoga Teachers, as well as experts in Online Learning, this is a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of the latest research in teen yoga.

Teaching Approach

The Teen Yoga online course goes beyond the usual online offering, using a community approach to ensure the same high quality interactive and participatory experience that Charlotta has always provided. The course is both practical and theoretical – meaning you will be spending time on the mat investigating and experiencing sequences frequently used with young people, as well as engaging in group projects and discussion with your peers and individual reflection, with continuous tutor support in forums and one-to-one tutorials. You will also be learning through visual lectures, audio meditations and seminars with Charlotta. This unique combination of learning techniques will provide you with a deep and grounded understanding of the complexities and intricacies of teaching yoga to adolescents.

Course Content

The course is based on in-depth coverage of the research evidence relating to adolescent development and yoga and over 15 years of hands-on experience in this field. The course will cover:

  • Socio-psychology of the adolescent
  • Anatomy of the adolescent
  • Neurobiology of the adolescent
  • Teenagers and yoga principles
  • The logistics of teaching teen yoga

Within these topic areas there will be other varied topics also covered, which you can see in the detailed Prospectus.

Course Structure

There are 5 modules delivered over a 10 week period. During this period the student will need to dedicate between 7-10 hours per week to the course. In addition to a wide variety of course content and activities in which you work on different aspects of the subject area with your peers, there are regular webinars and conference calls. Each module has a webinar with Charlotta Martinus and a group online session, as well as an individual session with your tutor.

You will receive links to each module’s video lectures and supporting materials every other Wednesday, and can listen to those lectures whenever and as often as you wish. Students will have two weeks to complete the requirements for each module before being able to move on to the next module as a way to ensure that the whole group begins and ends the training at the same time. You will have access to the course for 1 year from the day it concludes.

The Teaching Faculty

Charlotta Martinus, the course leader, is supported by a team of highly experienced online tutors. The tutors are experienced Teen Yoga teachers and therapists trained exclusively by Charlotta to run this course. Often, they also work with teens in other capacities such as educators or therapists. They are all continuously monitored and supported by Charlotta.

Your Commitment

Effective participation in the course requires a minimum dedication of 7 hours a week, and for some up to 10. There are 5 modules on the course (plus a short introductory module). Each module lasts 2 weeks. You should expect to dedicate an average of about one hour a day, and you choose when you wish to do this. However, we recommend that you try to keep a regular rhythm rather than trying to do it all on one day. You will also have a group task to do in each module where you may wish to have meetings with your group, or choose to communicate via messaging.

The dedication involves, in each module:

  • A theory section which involves a range of detailed content and reflection, with a variety of videos and presentations for you to follow, as well as an example class
  • Assignments, which involve one activity to be done in collaboration with others and one individual activity.
  • Reflection activities where you consolidate and explore what you are learning, on your own and with peers in the class forum space

All the above activities can be done in your own time. There are also activities that take place in specific time slots, that are appropriate for your time zone. These are:

  • Webinar with Charlotta Martinus (1.5 hours) with the opportunity to ask questions and go further into the subject.
  • Group online session (1.5 hours) where you share the work you have done in your assignments with the group and comment.
  • Individual tutorials (30 mins – time arranged with tutor to suit both) where you comment on your progress and discuss any issues that may have arisen in the module

The course is also based on the idea that all those who follow it have their own regular yoga practice. We recommend that during the course you adapt your own practice to support your reflection on how best to teach young people yoga. For this purpose we recommend sessions and guided meditations commonly used with young people that you can incorporate into your practice, to acquire first hand experience of them.

What happens after the course?

You will be ready to teach young people yoga. On completion of the course, if all evaluation criteria are met, you will be accredited and added to the closed online Facebook group, in which Charlotta and other experts mentor and support you in your onward journey. You will also receive the exclusive newsletter which shares new research and ideas on a regular basis.
