A New Way of Training for these New Times:

We are living in unusual times that warrant a flexible training schedule.  In the middle of a pandemic, it is not easy to clear your schedule and stay focused for large blocks of time, and there are many new barriers to finding childcare and getting time off work.

At Young Yoga Masters, we are adapting to this “new normal” by moving away from the old way of teacher training for a whole weekend or a week-long intensive (for 2021 anyway) and introducing a more flexible training in its place.

Choose Your Way of Learning

Starting now, you can choose your own combination of self-paced training and live zoom calls to complete this 96 Hour Yoga Alliance Registered Children’s Yoga School training.

  • Self-Paced Training: If you are comfortable with online learning, you can complete the training videos at your own pace. Every 16 hours of self-paced training = 14 hours recorded training + 2 hours practicum teaching, reflection, and report back that you complete at your own pace,
  • Live Zoom Training: If you prefer group interaction, you can attend the live Zoom training calls.   Every 16 hours of this training includes = 10 hours live-Zoom training + 4 hours self-paced training + 2 hours practicum teaching, reflection, and report back
  • Or you can have your own combination of training videos AND live Zoom training.

The choice is now yours!

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

Gives You an Edge

“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.”
– Sandra, Young Yoga Masters Graduate

Why Register with Young Yoga Masters?

5 Fundamentals of the Young Yoga Masters Training:

  1. Yoga is more than Pretending to be Animals: Playful animal poses are fun but if that is all you teach you will start to feel like you are putting on a show rather than sharing ancient wisdom. The Young Yoga Masters program incorporates powerful yoga philosophy in kid-friendly lesson plans.  You will deepen your own understanding of yoga as you learn to explain it in a way a three-year-old can understand.
  2. Learn from a Variety of Trainers and Each Other: You will always have more than one trainer in our 96 Hour program and you will always have live, interactive training sessions so you get to learn from the other students.  This happens whether the training is online or in-person. This way, you can see the different ways to teach yoga to children. We don’t want you to copy one teacher, we support you to become an authentic teacher, one who embraces their personal style and who encourages children to be authentic too.
  3. You need a Lot of Activities: You cannot teach kids the way you would teach an adult yoga class. Children are fickle yogis, who don’t have much of a filter.  A few activities and games will get you through a class series, but if you teach 40 or 50 weeks a year, you need a lot of activities, or the kids will start complaining, or worse, not want to come to class.  Our training has over 300 tested activities for yoga classes that keep kids engaged. This encourages kids to keep coming to yoga class so you get to keep teaching!
  4. Structure and Flexibility:  You’ll get tools, so you go into classes prepared. Plus you’ll explore how flexibility and boundaries are required to create safety and sanity in your classes.  This is the winning combination of highly effective teachers.
  5. You need to Teach Kids to Become a Kids Yoga Teacher: Yoga Alliance requires that a graduate of a Kids Yoga Teacher Training has taught actual children. It makes sense! In the Young Yoga Masters training, you will meet the required four hours as lead teacher in kids yoga classes. This means you don’t just pretend to teach, you get actual experience. Plus, now you’ll learn how to teach online too. You will see how this Yoga Alliance requirement creates confident yoga and mindfulness teachers who have actually taught kids!

These principles create a unique, outstanding training experience.

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
