About the event


Part 2: Developing and leading therapeutic yoga sessions in Sonia Sumar’s Method for Teens and Young Adults

 Itinerary and what you will learn 

This course further expands on the techniques learned in Part 1 with particular emphasis on working with teens and young adults, but also refining your skills to work with kids from 0-12 years.    The Part 2 curriculum is rich and engaging. It includes:

  • Review and further study the four stages of Yoga for the Special Child.
  • In-depth feedback and tips from Sonia Sumar on videos brought to the course by each student.
  • Discuss the theory and practice of working with older students (13 and above).
  • Study of the physiological and psychological benefits of therapeutic yoga for older children and young adults.
  • Developing skills and learning tools to deal with challenges when working with teens and adolescents.
  • Learning how to structure a group class.

Part 2 provides an incredible opportunity for feedback and guidance on specific case studies as each practitioner brings different cases to the group. During the training, you will also be developing your yoga practice further. Each day will begin with a 2-hour yoga practice led by Sonia Sumar. The course is experiential, and thus, it will involve pairing up with fellow students for hands-on training in adjustments.

Note: Participants must have had some experience teaching at least 2 hours of yoga class using The Sonia Sumar Method (i.e., four half-hour classes). Participants will bring at least one video of one of these half-hour sessions/classes to the course for feedback. (Note: video must be compatible with Windows Media Player or QuickTime). A video of any student of any age is acceptable, but a session with an older child is encouraged.


“Yoga for the Special Child” is recognized by Yoga Alliance Professionals, Yoga Alliance International, International Association of Yoga Therapists, and AOTA, which proves the high quality of training you will be undertaking.


The price of the course is £987 (early bird £907 - valid until 31st August 2023)

The initial deposit is £250, and the rest is payable ten days before the starting date of the course.

However, we understand that sometimes splitting things into monthly installments is more manageable financially; therefore, that option is also available. Once you pay the deposit, we can break the rest into equal amounts, and you can pay it off monthly over a set period. If you wish to choose this option, please email us first.

If you need any further information, feel free to email us anytime. We will do our best to help and support you in the process.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to MahaDevi Yoga Centre and the Yoga for the Special Child Family.
