Kids Yoga Teacher Training

After finishing the 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), individuals have the option to further their training by participating in our 100-hour Kids Yoga Teacher Training (KYTT) program. This program is specifically tailored to teach yoga to children between the ages of 5 and 13. Instructing yoga to youngsters is a whole another endeavor and has its own distinct array of difficulties. It is necessary to intelligently address factors such as diverse age groups, limited attention spans, and lack of seriousness towards the subject in order to effectively convey the substance of the practice to these young brains.

The Kids YTT program is specifically designed to provide future teachers with the essential skills and knowledge to comprehend the unique needs of each child and effectively meet those needs. The program aims to create an environment where children feel comfortable and gradually develop a genuine enjoyment for the learning process, seamlessly integrating it into their young lives to ensure a promising future.
