The Teen Yoga Ambassadors course is a 3-level programme for young people between the ages of 14 and 21. The objective of the course is to qualify young people to share well-being techniques with their peers.  This is achieved in 3 simple steps.

  1. The resident yoga teacher at the school together with school tutor choose a likely candidate from a school between the ages of 14 and 21
    (it is also possible for a young person, to nominate themselves and pay for the course, please email us for details)
  2. When 12 students are enrolled a weekend course takes place in a local space, involving some practical tips to deal with day- to-day problems.
  3. They share this knowledge in their school with their peers

The programme has 3 levels –

  1. one weekend of training to deliver well-being techniques to peers informally or three Saturday mornings over 6 weeks, totalling 14 hours face to face and 10 hours self study
  2. one weekend of training to deliver well-being techniques in small groups or three Saturday mornings over 6 weeks, totalling 14 hours face to face and 10 hours self study
  3. one-week residential training towards a full Yoga Teacher Training, including the science and rationale behind certain useful yoga techniques and how to apply them to common issues such as anxiety, low mood, obesity and disengagement. This would qualify them to run larger yoga groups (up to 12).

Each level has a motivational award; level 1 receive a mat, level 2 a book and level 3 receive Mood Card pack and other books.

The course which will also be a self-development course with no more than 12 students,  is funded independently, including the venues which will be donated either by local schools or GPs. We do offer bursary places for each intake.

The course has been developed and verified by a group of young people, psychiatrists, social workers, yoga therapists and educators. It is fully evidence-based and insured and all teachers have enhanced DBS clearance. It is endorsed by the College of Medicine and by the Teen Yoga Foundation.
