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.

Why Register with Young Yoga Masters?

Take a Training that Gives You the Confidence that Comes from Actually Teaching Yoga to Children

Yoga Alliance has stringent guidelines that requires a Kids Yoga Teacher Training to include actually teaching real kids. It makes sense to us! The Young Yoga Masters Kids Yoga Camp will give you the experience you need teaching children to go out and start teaching right away! Here’s how one recent graduate used the training to start a new career.

A Fulfilling Career and A Bond With My Own Children That I Wouldn’t Trade for Anything…

After taking one modules with the Kids Camp practicum, I felt confident to approach daycares. With my background in marketing I was teaching children after only one training. By the end of the training, I have taught over 150 kids yoga classes. This training was a good investment. I have already earned back my investment in the course and more. I was searching for a more fulfilling career and Young Yoga Masters Training has given me that, but has also given me a bond with my own children that I wouldn’t trade for anything. – Zaheeda Jiwan, Graduate Young Yoga Masters, 95 Hour Children’s Yoga Teacher Training
