An Overview of our "Kids Yoga Teacher Training"

Our “Kids Yoga Teacher Training” is flexible in order to meet the needs of busy school teachers, daycare providers, parents, youth leaders and yoga instructors. This flexibility allows participants to take 1, 2, 3 or all 6 modules and pace themselves according to their personal schedules and training budgets.

Our program has 6 modules and each module is a “standalone module” with a specific area of focus. It is your choice which modules you would like to take and in what order you would like to take them in. “Every Module Counts” – so if you decide to get your 95 hour Certification in the future, all of your individual modules completed to date count.

We offer the 6 modules throughout the school year on weekends and you receive a certificate for each module completed. We also offer the modules in the summer time. You can complete 1, 2, 3 or as many as you wish of the modules in the summer program in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. They are offered one right after the other, which allows those that are interested in completing all 6 to do that option within a 2 week timeframe. We also have a 10 day summer intensive in New Orleans, USA.

For those that complete all 6 modules, our “Kids Yoga Teacher Training” is recognized by Yoga Alliance and you will receive the 95 Hour Certification.

A Fulfilling Career and a Bond with My Own Children

That I Wouldn't Trade for Anything...

“The 95 Hour training really helped my own yoga practice. I learned about safe and correct postures, meditations that I have come to love and met some really fantastic people in the industry.

After taking only one of the modules and experiencing the Kids Camp, I felt confident enough to approach schools to start teaching. Using my background in marketing I was teaching children after only one weekend of training. Eight months later, by the end of the training, I have taught over 150 kids yoga classes.

This training was a good investment. I have already earned back my investment in the course and more because I have already taught over 150 classes. After working in the corporate world for over 15 years, I was searching for a more self-fulfilling career. This Kids Yoga Teacher Training has not only provided me a fulfilling career, but has also given me a bond with my own children that I wouldn’t trade for anything. The special yoga time we now share as a family is priceless.”
