The Inspirer Course
We live in a time where children, and in particular teens, are facing challenges unlike any that we as adults faced growing up. And this is set within social and educational frameworks that have remained largely static, systems which as a result are unable to provide the support and nurturing that our youngsters need to move through adolescence into healthy and balanced adulthood.
What can we do about this?
At Inspirer you will learn a broad array of tools and techniques to guide teenagers through the challenges they face. We focus on all aspects of teen wellbeing and will teach you how to support teenagers through the constant changes they face, so through attention to movement, posture, alignment, nutrition, and psychosocial coping strategies you will learn how to:
Identify and address the causes of stress
Identify and teach coping strategies
Teach embodied aware movement
We will teach you how to fill your toolbox with strategies to create the capacity for adaptation and once you have completed this voyage of self-discovery and self-appreciation you will then be able to teach these same skills and strategies to young people. And what you are teaching them is so much more than just surviving you are teaching them

Why choose the Inspirer Course?
In our world change is constant, everything is constantly shifting and we have lost our capacity to adapt.
We live in a world of uncertainties where there is little that we can be sure of, but there is one thing that we do know, we can be sure that things will change.
Our Inspirer program teaches us to see why adaptation isn’t happening, what causes this and teaches us ways to address this, to re-set ourselves and then teach this to an even more vulnerable group of people: teenagers.
We offer a multidisciplinary system which incorporates anatomy-specific embodied movement with awareness, psychosocial coping strategies and relaxation techniques which work together to create a healthier, stronger, more balanced teenager. The course has been specifically designed to teach teachers to address the specific challenges that are faced by teenagers. The syllabus comprises four 24 hour modules created to:
Enable students to learn at their own pace
Allow students to digest and absorb the material in their own bodies and daily life which is essential
Give students the time they really need to understand the complexities of teenage development, something which takes time and practice
What Makes the Inspirer Course Special?
Unlike any other course Inspirer encompasses a range of disciplines including Yoga, Pilates, energetic anatomy, partner work, natural movement and personal development. This is to equip prospective teachers with a real wealth of skills specifically designed for teaching teenagers. On completing the course an Inspirer teacher is fully equipped and trained to:
Understand the challenges faced by young people and those who work with them
Understand how these challenges manifest on physical, physiological, psychosocial, mental and emotional levels
Identify physical, physiological, mental and emotional challenges in young people and have the tools to address, guide and help teens through many of the difficulties they face
Create lesson plans that are relevant, fun and supportive
What greater gift could we offer our youth than mental, emotional and physical wellbeing?

“Inspirer has managed to provide my son with more insight into the way his body works and the necessity for stretching and using his muscles in different ways. ”
“Inspirer helped my daughter to not only regain her posture but also to become far fitter than she ever had been before and this helped her concentration as well as her ability to prevent herself getting too stressed from all her work and pressures of exams. ”
“The session delivered to our students was both engaging and inspiring. Students who are usually disengaged in physical activity were involved, willing and hanging on to the teachers every word as they were eager to learn. They felt as though they were in a safe environment where they could separate the stresses that they encounter in their everyday life and connect their mind and body. Students left the session feeling relaxed and inspired and are very much looking forward to future sessions in school.
“The teacher was able to build a rapport very easily with a class of despondent, confidence lacking and unwilling students. She opened up communication at ease and the students warmed to her instantaneously creating a conducive environment. She got ALL our students engaged, trying and working as a team. Students overcame self-consciousness and were encouraged and some were doing poses they never thought they could do. As a direct consequence of the session, students feedback was very positive. Some said they really enjoyed it, overcame negativity and one said that she was so anxious that day but the session helped her not only deal with it but ease her anxiety right down.
From my observations of before and after I would say it was a phenomenal success.
