What We Do
YogaKids is the leader in kids yoga training and products.
Teacher Training (Certification)
The YogaKids Program was the first kids yoga training program, and revolutionized the way yoga is taught to kids. Our educationally-based program is influenced by educational theorists such as Howard Gardner and Maria Montessori. A YogaKids class makes yoga accessible to kids of every learning style by integrating music, art, science, literacy, and so much more.
Our world-class certification program is ideal for yogis, educators, parents, teachers, occupational therapists, speech therapists, other child-focused professionals, ANYONE wanting to give the gift of yoga to children. No experience is necessary.
IMPORTANT: To become a Certified YogaKids Teacher, you can take either our live or online kids yoga training. Registered Yoga Teachers interested in earning a specialty in children’s yoga from Yoga Alliance (RCYT) MUST take the LIVE training options for Level 1 and 3 to fulfill the contact hour requirements of YA. If you would like to speak with us about which accredited courses you should take, please contact us.
