A Magical Experience!

Attending Young Yoga Masters Children’s Teacher Training provided me with so many resources, exercises, music, games and more.  The manuals are so professional.  I got to participate in yoga classes with children and taught meaningful lessons and fun yoga poses. It was a magical experience for them and me.   We learned exactly how to create a safe space for children and have a lot of FUN!  I gained so much experience, it built my confidence as a teacher. The cherry on top was that the training counted towards Yoga Alliance certification.
I recommend you sign up and come to Young Yoga Masters Children’s Yoga Teacher Training. You won’t’ be disappointed!

“I have earned back more than the tuition!”

After taking only one of the modules, I felt confident enough to approach schools to start teaching. I was teaching children after only one weekend of training. Eight months later, by my last module of training, I have taught over 150 kids yoga classes in daycare centers and have been paid for my teaching. I have already earned back more the tuition for the Certification.
