KIDS YOGA TEACHER TRAINING COURSE

This course can be taken as a workshop for non-yoga teachers or as a 18 HOUR Yoga Alliance Continuing Education module for Yoga Teachers.

The course is for anybody who loves working with children and loves yoga, for parents and teachers interested in new, creative, fun and healthy ways to connect with their children and family.

Many other Kids Yoga courses are padded generalised adult Yoga themes that are explored in 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training courses and aren’t relevant to teaching Kids Yoga.

Claire has designed the Yogalini Kids Yoga course to be completely practical and purely Kids Yoga Teaching focused, allowing the course to be shorter and more affordable.  Balanced with theory and practical lessons, discussions, play and lots of fun. You will be left with loads of inspiring ideas to create original, captivating yoga experiences for kids of all ages through specific tools, games and activities.
