Yoga + Mindfulness Teacher Trainings for Kids, Teens, and Young Adults

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

Opportunities to share yoga and mindfulness with children abound. Many elementary schools include yoga as part of their physical education curriculums or after school offerings and add mindfulness activities as brain breaks or as social-emotional education. Preschools incorporate yoga in their well-rounded offerings. Yoga studios offer specialized classes for kids and there are even yoga studios completely dedicated to children. Yoga for kids is offered at dance studios, martial arts schools, and gymnastics gyms. Yoga birthday parties are a thing. Kids yoga is everywhere!

Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training Certification Courses

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

Next Generation Yoga has spent more than two decades developing strategies to foster the yogic imagination for kids. NGY methods are tried and true and we want to share them with YOU!
