thejamjar, Alserkal, Dubai
Thejamjar is in the heart of the innovative, creative district of Alserkal Avenue. If you love the arts, culture and learning, you are in for a treat.
Surrounded by art galleries, immersive cultural experiences and homegrown initiatives (not to mention all the unique cafes & culinary experiences), this community is the perfect place to blend yoga and mindfulness with education, culture and creativity - which what we're all about.
Thejamjar has been a well established and active art studio for families for almost 20-years and they continues to expand their unique projects and multinational community.
Their ethos is all about creative collaboration, inclusion and diversity and increasing knowledge and appreciation of the arts (you can see why they're an excellent collaboration for the Divine Light Yoga training).
One of the absolute highlights of all of our teacher training programs is the opportunity to teach the children of our local community and it is such a diverse and beautiful community.
This is a wonderful chance to share your love, light and joy with children and families, that may not ordinarily have the opportunity to experience yoga, play & creativity. This is guaranteed to be one of the most valuable aspects of the training and something that makes us a little unique.
Through interactive assignments, experiential learning, teaching practices and group discussions, we'll explore;
Creative, safe and age-appropriate yoga poses & sequences
Making yoga fun and engaging for little ones all the way to teens
The developing mind & body of children, including the different learning styles and how to tailor your classes to different ages & abilities
