Kids Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training

It isn’t always easy to be a kid these days. The modern world can expose children to stress at an early age. This leaves them searching for coping strategies. Yoga and mindfulness address the challenges kids face by equipping them with self-regulation skills and calming techniques while boosting their independence and self-awareness.

There are plenty of opportunities to share yoga and mindfulness with children. Elementary schools include yoga as part of their P.E. curriculums and add mindfulness activities as social-emotional education. Preschools incorporate yoga in their well-rounded offerings. Even some yoga studios are completely dedicated to children or at least offer specialized classes for them. Kids’ yoga is everywhere.


Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training Certification Courses 

Teaching yoga and mindfulness to kids is a unique skillset. While it shares poses and breathing and meditation exercises with adult yoga, kids’ yoga is truly its own genre. It is not intended to be adult yoga for kids; rather it is meant to cultivate love and curiosity for the practices that can last a lifetime.

Next Generation Yoga (NGY) has spent more than two decades developing strategies to foster the yogic imagination of kids. Our methods are tried and tested, and we want to share them with you.

NGY offers Yoga Alliance-approved training and is a Registered Children’s Yoga School (RCYS). Current yoga teachers who are registered with Yoga Alliance as 200-hour Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs) are eligible to earn a 95-hour specialty designation of Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT) upon completion of the required NGY teacher training curriculums.

*A desire to become an RCYT is not required in order to participate in any of our certification courses.
