This online kids yoga training event will introduce you to YogaKids and our one-of-a-kind way of teaching yoga to children. This is a stand-alone event AND the first step of Full Certification. (Learn the benefits of Full Certification here.) The YogaKids program is more than just poses. Because it blends traditional yoga with education, it creates something new. A comprehensive, imaginative, and playful way to learn. Developed by our founder, yoga pioneer-educator-author Marsha Wenig, YogaKids has been helping children for over 25 years.
What will you learn at our online kids yoga training event?
First, you will experience life-changing love and laughter. Also, you will learn about all 14 of the YogaKids Elements. These are the building blocks of our amazing program. They include all the different ways children learn. For instance, the Elements combine yoga with reading, writing, science, art, music, games, ecology, philosophy and much more. As a result, they make yoga accessible to all children.
Furthermore, you will be introduced to our 20 categories of poses. Some poses are based on traditional asanas. However, others are unique to the YogaKids program. Also, you will learn successful strategies for lesson planning. Finally, you’ll learn about teaching teens, inclusive teaching, and guidelines for teaching a successful YogaKids class.
This online kids yoga training event is for anyone wanting to give yoga to children. For example, it’s for yogis, parents, teachers, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and other child-focused professionals. Also, no yoga experience is required.

TRAINER: Kim Vulinovic
Kim began her yoga practice in 1996 after the birth of her youngest daughter. She was surprised to find that yoga helped not only her physical body, but all aspects of her life. Kim joined YogaKids in 2001. She was looking for a career that merged her love of yoga with her interest in education. Kim is designated by Yoga Alliance as a ERYT-200 hour and teaches both child-focused and adult-focused yoga classes.
PLEASE NOTE: This online training is part of our YogaKids Teacher Certification track but does NOT count as contact hours toward the RCYT designation from Yoga Alliance. Those on the RCYT track must attend a live Level 1 Training.
