Whether your aim is to become a Certified YogaKids Teacher — or to get new tools for integrating yoga into a child-friendly environment (classroom, home, office) — our Level 1 YogaKids Foundations Training is the place to begin. This event, available as an an online course, introduces attendees to the YogaKids’ one-of-a-kind way of teaching yoga to children.
Founded by yoga-pioneer/ educator/author Marsha Wenig, YogaKids has been helping children — along with adults — discover the pleasures and benefits of yoga for over 25 years. The YogaKids Program, influenced by theorists such as Maria Montessori and Howard Gardner, celebrates the whole child. Our broad yoga-for-children program will give you the tools to teach yoga to all ages and abilities.
Attendees will be introduced to all 14 of the YogaKids Elements, the building blocks of this amazing program. These Elements (Math Medley, Laughing Language, Visual Vignettes… to name just a few) incorporate all the different ways children learn. They combine yoga with reading, writing, science, art, music, games, ecology, philosophy and much more — and thus, create a matrix for learning that’s accessible to all children.

The Foundations program was such a great introduction to what the YogaKids training entails. Once I completed the Foundations I was excited to dive in deeper into the program and signed up for the Level 2 & 3 trainings. I’ve been doing the Level 2 online and the lessons are arranged so that you are able to fully understand each concept fully and the support from the instructors has been very positive. I would fully recommend the program!
