YogaKids Certification

“I earned back my investment in Certification before I even completed my training.” – Certified YogaKids Teacher Kim Vulinovic


A Training Unlike Any Other

** Endorsed by Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Andrew Weil, & Jean Houston, Ph.D. **

Our Certification Program was the first of its kind. Our founder, Marsha Wenig, revolutionized the way yoga is taught to kids by creating an educationally-based program that 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.
