Passionate about holistic health including the benefits of yoga, meditation and mindfulness, I started practicing yoga and meditation in 2001 and have not looked back. Since then I have enjoyed studying Transformation Meditation, guided imagery and mindfulness and have participated in a 300 hour Satyananda yoga teacher training course, which opened my mind and body to the powerful healing of yoga.  I am a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance International.  A few years ago I experienced the joy and energy of children’s yoga when I participated in two children’s yoga teacher training programmes.  Children’s yoga has always been fun to teach and adds an important level of playfulness to life which we can start to lose as we become adults.

Never one to shy away from exciting projects, I enjoyed the challenge of writing and teaching the Chilled Out Child meditation and mindfulness facilitator training programme, which has evolved year on year.  This  programme has been acknowledged as offering a high standard of course materials, tuition and mentoring and received accreditation from Yoga Alliance International.

The Chilled Out Child  training programme focuses on adapted mindfulness and meditation techniques to enable adults to easily share these skills with children.

The programme is aimed at adults who wish to develop their own meditation practice and learn how to share anxiety management techniques, meditation and the art of being mindful in daily life with children and teens.

The Chilled Out Child meditation and mindfulness facilitator training programme is a comprehensive twelve module mentored training programmme covering different aspects of meditation and how to share meditation and mindfulness with children and teenagers.  Starting from June 2018, the  programme will run over six months; four months working through the modules and two months to complete all homework and the final project.

The training will help you, help children,  live in a more mindful way, developing an appreciation and understanding for compassion and the importance of kindness, tolerance and patience with themselves and others.  This training is ideal for individuals who may wish to set up a mindfulness programme within their existing professional workplace setting,  for example nursery, primary and secondary schools or set up independent classes in the community.

The 100 hour Chilled Out Child Meditation and Mindfulness Facilitator training includes coaching calls using ZOOM as well as email mentoring with downloadable printables,  a training manual with over 100 pages of practical yet inspiring information and a short e-book.  If you are interested in participating in this programme, interviews are held twice a month via ZOOM.

This training program is excellent! After having completed the course, I feel confident and properly prepared to teach Mindfulness to children. I think it helped that I had done a course about what Mindfulness is prior to this so that in this course, I could focus on the teaching aspect.

The material provided has been well researched. Tania also includes personal recommendations of what has worked for her and what hasn’t. I found this invaluable! So the course is not just a whole lot of theory – it is real life examples of what you can use when you start teaching.

It is a very practical course. I especially appreciated the section about starting one’s own business and the tips to get started.

I think this course is a fantastic one to do if you are serious about wanting to teach Mindfulness to children. Tania gives a lot of support and encouragement.

I highly recommend this course.

The workshop was fantastic – really informative, yet fun & interactive. I learnt a lot about incorporating mindfulness & meditation into daily, family life. Tania is an excellent teacher and I think that everybody should incorporate one of her workshops into their schedule. You will learn a lot and if at any stage you want to reference anything discussed in the workshop you can simply reference the detailed manual. A great, well-run workshop that I would recommend to anybody.
