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 centres and have been paid for my teaching. I have already earned back more the tuition for the Certification.

The secret to Frog Yoga Alphabet’s likeability is its versatility.
Kids are insatiable and naturally curious. They are interested in playing the role of leader, they love to use their imagination,
And they have to have lots of fun in order to really learn.
The frog illustrations are an immediate attractor factor. Good, clean design is intrinsic to learning. Plus, pre-school to teens . . . frogs are cool at school.
