Project Description

95-HOUR KIDS YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

OVERVIEW

Our Kids Yoga Teacher Training Program is perfect for anyone who loves to work with children. This course is designed to help you learn the art and science of teaching yoga to young people, appropriate to their age, to help them develop physically, emotionally and spiritually in a unique and fun way.

This course will help you bring out your own creativity and playful nature to empower children in all aspects of their life. This intensive teacher training is for teachers, parents, yoga and fitness professionals seeking to inspire children to learn and adopt yoga and mindfulness as part of their life.

In this course you will learn how to use storytelling, visualisation, imagination, animal poses, music, arts, games, and more to teach yoga to kids.  You will be given tools and ideas to help children tap into the power of breath, develop focus and mindfulness and develop strength of the body, mind and character through physical yogic movements. You will learn how to teach them to relax and let go of what is not important. We also teach you how to create classes appropriate to different age groups to meet children’s needs.

You will be given a reading list which you must complete before or during your training.
