Young Yoga Masters is a highly acclaimed training, where mentors will guide you to become a confident teacher who makes a difference in the lives of children. For many it is the start of a new career!

Take a look at our upcoming dates below to get started.  To see a full description of the upcoming courses, click on the course names. Here are the upcoming dates:

2020 Dates – Now Online

Yoga Alliance has permitted Registered Yoga Schools to move their training online until June 30, 2020. Any training we offer before June 30, 2020 will count towards your 95 Hour Certificate.  After the Yoga Alliance deadline (June 30) you will need to attend the training in-person for it to count towards the 95 Hour Certificate.  This is a unique window to take the training online!

Young Yoga Masters’ training will now be live and online using Zoom conferencing for live classes.  We will also record the Zoom conferences and put them on the Teachable platform for your reference during the training.

The 95 Hour training will begin on April 18 and complete on June 11, 2020.

If you participate in the live online training and complete the online practicum requirement, you will receive a certificate for each Module you complete. Upon completion of all modules, you will receive your 95 Hour Certificate from our Yoga Alliance Registered Children’s Yoga School**.

Online Training Live Hours*:

All participants need to participate in the weekend training hours:

  • Saturday hours:  9:00 – 11:30 am & 2:00 – 4:30 pm (5 hours required live)
  • Sunday hours: 9:00 – 11:30 am &  2:00 – 4:30 pm (5 hours required live)

Practicum Office Hours:
The practicum hours are flexible and you do not have to attend in the morning, you can watch the recordings as they are posted.   To fulfill the practicum requirement of a Yoga Alliance Children’s School training, students are required to be lead teacher for 4 hours of childrens yoga classes. This is 4 hours over the 95 Hour Training (40 min per module).  We will plan for 6 x 30 minute and 1 x 60 minute yoga class, and you will teach them to children.  You can teach them in your home or online.

These will be the “office hours” for the Practicum portion of the training.

  • Tuesday hours: 9:00 – 11:30 am (2.5 hours flexible)
  • Thursday hours:  9:00 – 11:30 am (2.5 hours flexible)

*Times are Eastern Standard Time (EST) – please convert to your time zone here.
** You do not need to be a yoga teacher to take the Young Yoga Masters training.  However, to become a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance you need both your 200 Hour Certificate (Adult) from a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School and the 95 Hour Certificate from a Yoga Alliance Registered Children’s Yoga School.  See full details on the Yoga Alliance website here.  Or visit our Frequently Asked Questions page here.

Online Training Rates and Application Process:

The online training is by application only.

Applications will be accepted until April 11, 2020. You will be notified if your application is accepted and sent an invoice.  Spots are limited.  Priority will be given to those already registered in the training and those who are available for the live event times for the full training.

Because of the current special circumstances opening up spots in the online training, a limited number of partial scholarships (3) are available. Please indicate if you are requesting a partial scholarship on the application.  We regret that we will not be able to offer scholarships to everyone who applies.  We have received many requests and unfortunately will not be able to offer scholarships for those whose income is cut off because of the pandemic.  We hope you will be able to take the training in person at a future date.  If your partial scholarship application is accepted, you will be notified after April 11.

No-Frills Rates: Save $450*

Note: The online training is set at no-frills pricing.  The rate has been reduced from the regular rates because students will not receive printed manuals and will be responsible for purchasing their own props.  Certificates are earned at the completion of each module.

  • 48 Hours (3 x 16 Hour Certificates): $1125 $990 + tax (CDN)

kids yoga teacher leading children in a breathing activity

Trainer, Aruna, leads kids in a breathing activity.


I got your newsletter for years before I signed up for the training, worried that it would be too much time and too hard to handle financially. So when you started the installment plans it made it easy for me to say yes.  Little did I know the training would be so energizing, I couldn’t wait for the training weekends, they were something I looked forward to so much!  It was fun, there were a ton of tools I could use right away, and the people are wonderful, I am still in touch with them.  I have developed into a pretty good kids yoga teacher too because the kids don’t want to leave my class.”  Kristi B., Graduate Toronto, 2019

“I’m a supply teacher and it’s given me that edge and separates me from the pack. As a result gym teachers call me to work for them. Teachers call me again because I’ve implemented games and it’s been very successful.”

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 module 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
