Designed for busy people like you, this Children's Yoga Specialty training schedule gives you the unique opportunity to get your Children's Yoga Specialty Certification by attending just one weekend a month. No weekdays required! Each day begins with a fun, child-focused theme-based practice. You get to practice just as the children do so you have an experiential understanding of the techniques and the flow of a class. We then explore the principles behind the practice so you know why and how to teach this to others.
The training also includes interactive, small group experiences to help you refine your understanding and benefit from the varied experiences of the vibrant group of like-minded participants. You’ll be studying side-by-side with moms, yoga teachers, school teachers, counselors, therapists and other health care professionals a.k.a Infinite Pool of Wisdom.
You will also get a chance to get your feet wet and teach what you are learning in a supportive and relaxed environment. Included in this process is an effect feedback process we have refined over the years. We offer free children’s yoga classes to the community during our training so you'll see “live classes” as part of your experience.
