Student Experiments with Teaching Yoga to Kids

As part of Denver’s Axis Yoga teacher training program, students engage in final student experiments that incorporate what they have learned in the 3-month training into their daily lives. As someone who works with at-risk youth, this student chose to bring her knowledge of yoga to the kids she works with. She had to change her expectations and modify the poses to gear the class towards rambunctious elementary school kids. Her account of the experience follows.
