Our summer-intensive teacher training is open to anyone who has a passion for working with children and utilizing the tools of yoga to support learning and development. As a kids yoga teacher, you will dive deeper into yoga philosophy, chakras, child development, and leave with techniques and lessons to teach yoga to children in individual and group settings. The comprehensive training modules offer a full view of how yoga supports children from infancy to teen years.

We believe yoga is for all abilities. As teachers, we need to learn how to make yoga accessible and thereby empower our children and youth to access their full potential. This training will provide you with practical tools to practice yoga with children and teach them how to self-care, self-manage and self-regulate. Learn how to integrate yoga, movement, breath work, songs, stories, games, visualization, and relaxation into the lives of children and youth.

After completing the training hours, applicants must submit 30 teaching hours in children's yoga. Beloved Yoga's Children’s Yoga Teacher Training Certification Program includes the 30 hours as part of our mentoring program.
