CAN I TRAIN OTHER PEOPLE AFTER COMPLETING THE 95H TRAINING?
Completing the 95h training provides you with the necessary tools to work with children, adolescents and adults with special needs. However, in order to be able to train other people, a much more specific, exhaustive and continuous training is needed that only Sonia Sumar provides to the people she personally chooses. You can access the official Yoga for the Special Child® website to check the authorized and recognized Yoga for the Special Child® teachers http://www.specialyoga.com/teachers.html
I HAVE DONE A YOGA training previously, CAN I ACCESS DIRECTLY TO PART 2?
If the training is from a Method other than the Sonia Sumar Method, Yoga for the Special Child®, you must complete Part 1. It is the only way to ensure that all participants leave with the necessary tools and knowledge to provide their students with all the benefits from the therapy and avoid injuries.
DO I NEED TO HAVE yoga experience TO attend the TRAINING?
It is not necessary, it is a training open to parents of children with special needs, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, people related to special education, people interested in special needs.
I already read the book "YOGA FOR SPECIAL CHILD" SONIA Sumar, am I going to learn something new in training?
Reading the book is not comparable to the training. The most important tools that you will learn in training do not come in the book. Moreover your instructor will ensure that you will learn them correctly, in order to use them properly with your students.
I HAVE READ THE BOOK "YOGA FOR THE SPECIAL CHILD" BY SONIA SUMAR, CAN I START GIVING YOGA CLASSES TO CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AFTER READING IT?
In order to teach Yoga for the Special Child® classes to children with special needs, it is necessary to attend the Yoga for the Special Child® training specially designed for it. Reading the book is not enough.
