No prior yoga experience is necessary; we will teach you what you need to know!

Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training for ages 2-12 offers a variety of tools and strategies to empower you to create meaningful kids yoga and mindfulness experiences. Experienced trainers share their own passion for this work as they facilitate a fun and inspiring training curriculum. Trainees are given opportunities to interact and observe, to learn about what works for others, and to develop original strategies to bring benefits of yoga and mindfulness to children.

Participants will meet on Zoom, a web-based video conference service. It is free and your Trainer will provide a link to the virtual “room.” If you don’t have video capabilities, you can join by phone.

This course is taught to you “live” and online. That means our master trainers will be leading you through the course during a specific time and you’ll have the chance to actively participate as well as interact with your fellow trainees. You’ll be able to see and hear other like-minded people from around the world – how cool is that!?! While we do encourage being available to participate in the live classes and discussions, if you need to miss, all sessions are recorded and will be available for you to download and watch later.
