Kids Yoga Teacher Training and Certification

Announcing: Young Yoga Masters at National Kids Yoga Conference


Young Yoga Masters will be attending and presenting at the Kids Yoga Conference in Washington DC this September. I talked to Aruna about why she attends, and she shared these five reasons why she makes the trip to DC:

  1. Professional and Business Development: As a yoga teacher who has made kids yoga their profession, I want to know what’s happening in my field. I learn about (and do some shopping for) new props and tools. I get professional development on best practices and stay up-to-date with trends and new research. I look at conference attendance as an important investment in the development of my business.
  2. Prevention: Possibly more important than seeing what’s working, I go to find out what isn’t working. The organizers facilitate a beautifully supportive environment in which people share their successes, but are also comfortable revealing the trouble they are having and how they are dealing with it. I save myself from a lot of difficulties with this info.
  3. Research: You find out about the latest research and best practices directly from experts in the field.
  4. Passion for Kids Yoga: A Kids Yoga Conference was something I wanted for a long time, but didn’t want to organize. I’m so grateful YoKid has taken the initiative to organize this conference. They’ve done an amazing job with organizing the event and getting industry leaders to attend. As someone who is passionate about kids yoga, I want the event to succeed and I hope it is one of many important steps in getting Kids Yoga on the map. Attending is like voting with dollars and energy. If people don’t attend, it won’t exist for long. It’s up to us.
  5. Fun! I block off the weekend as soon as the dates are announced because I want to meet my favorite authors, thought leaders, and catch up with many of our grads who will also attend! I’m in awe all weekend, walking around and recognizing all kinds of people I’ve followed online. They’re my tribe; they understand me and my lifestyle, and this sort of company is extremely comforting and exciting. I also love being a student, and seeing what teachers have planned for me over the weekend. I think if every teacher remains a learner the world will be a smarter place.

Now Aruna is asking for help from you with YoKids’ challenge to get people to register early. They’ve given us a 10% OFF Discount Code: YoungYogaMasters and asked us to encourage you to commit and register early.
