2019 Teacher Training

KIDS Teacher Training!

Do you want to help the youth in your life find more confidence and peace?

Do you want to help children and teens be more compassionate towards themselves and others?

Do you believe that early implementation of healthy body/mind habits sets humans of all ages up for success?

This Training is a great way to learn how mindfulness and movement practices physically change the brain- improving memory, impulse control, decision making, attention, and learning. Learn how to share the magic of mindful movement with youth, and help students grow to be the best versions of themselves, cognitively, physically, and emotionally.

Harlem Yoga Studio has been committed to being a space where the WHOLE family is welcome and thrives.  After working with families for 10 years and a wonderful first round, we are thrilled to announce our second Kids Yoga Training based on our experience working with kids, and the expressed needs of families and schools.

Erica Barth is a proud New Yorker, a life-long lover of movement, “Yoga-nerd”, and the co-owner of Harlem Yoga Studio.  She holds a Bachelors degree in Business from the Wharton School and a Masters degree in Organizational Psychology from Columbia University, where she focused on Group Dynamics and Conflict Resolution.  While training for a marathon in 2001, Erica ran into her first Yoga class and quickly fell in love with the way that Yoga brought strength and flexibility to her body,  and even more so, serenity and balance to her mind.  She obtained her teaching certification from the Integral Yoga Institute of New York where she met Laurel, and after years of looking for a business idea she could be passionate about, was thrilled to help open Harlem Yoga Studio!  Erica is certified to teach Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Teens, and Children. Her classes combine a focus on alignment with a playful and creative sequencing of postures, leading students to find a relaxing and energizing union between breath and body. She is continually inspired to deepen her knowledge of the body, mind, and spirit, and is profoundly grateful to have studied with many incredible teachers around the city and the world, including Yin Yoga and Mindfulness with Sarah Powers, Vinyasa Yoga with Seane Corn, Anatomy with Leslie Kaminoff, and Ashtangha Yoga with Saraswati Jois.   In her work with clients both on and off the mat,  Erica incorporates yoga philosophy to help individuals feel calm, strong and centered, and groups and teams work together more effectively.  It is her joy an intention for Harlem Yoga Studio to help make Yoga welcoming and accessible in all of its forms, and to create space for the community to gather, breathe, relax, and have fun!
