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’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.”

“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?

These are the priorities we feel are important in a kids yoga teacher training that make up the Young Yoga Masters Certification:

  • Practicum with Actual Children:  Yoga Alliance has stringent guidelines that requires a Children’s Yoga Teacher Training to include actually teaching real kids. It makes sense to us! The Young Yoga Masters Practicum is consistently listed as a favourite part of the training by our graduates.  During the Summer Certification we will spend 18 Hours volunteer teaching yoga to the children at the Art Gallery of Burlington Summer camp to give you the experience you need to start teaching right after graduation!  We’ll teach 3 age groups for 3 hours each module of training.  You’ll observe Aruna and Marcia teaching yoga and you’ll teach from your lesson plans, with the support and supervision of your trainer and other participants.
  • Experience in Training Kids Yoga Teachers:  Young Yoga Masters has been a Yoga Alliance Registered Children’s Yoga School since 2012 when Yoga Alliance created the 95 Hour Specialty Certificate!  That means 8 years of offering the 95 Hour Children’s Yoga Training.  We’ve done major updates to our manuals and format twice since 2012 to improve the training using feedback from our graduates and incorporating new knowledge in education.   Plus lead trainer, Aruna, has been teaching yoga since 1998, full-time since 2000.  She has studied meditation and mindfulness with a Guru for 10 years and has over 500 Hrs of Kundalini Yoga training, she lived in an Ashram for 6 years, and is a regular presenter at the Kids Yoga Conference.  She knows the in’s and out’s of teaching and running a yoga business and can mentor you on your path.  Her warmth and patience lets you know you can ask her any questions you want!
  • A Meaningful Curriculum:  Yes we have a lot of fun and games in the Young Yoga Masters training, but we also have many meaningful activities to turn teachers into powerhouses by sharing life-affirming yoga philosophy with children.  Many graduates say they understand yoga more deeply after hearing the yoga concepts explained to a 5 year old using our curriculum.  We have taken all our yoga training and teaching experience and clarified it, so you have fun teaching while helping children self-regulate, understand their emotions, and feel empowered and uplifted.
  • Resources Included in Your Registration:  You’ll receive comprehensive manuals and resources, all included in your registration, to support your teaching.  You don’t have to take tons of notes during the training because it is all written in the manuals. You also get yoga cards, books, printable colouring pages, an album of guided meditations, stickers, a breathing ball, and a balancing eagle (plus a few extra goodies we find along the way).  After the training you’ll have more than enough to teach kids yoga for a long while.
  • Post Training Support: You’ll also gain access to the private Facebook Group for Young Yoga Masters teachers as well as the ongoing support of our monthly Newsletter delivered to your inbox after the training.  The Young Yoga Masters blog has over 200 articles to support your growth and give you ideas after the training is over. You won’t be on your own once the training is over, in fact it’s more like a new beginning, and we want to support you to succeed in teaching your own classes to children.

Have Questions?

Seeing you successfully graduate as a kids yoga teacher is our mission as a Yoga Alliance Registered Children’s Yoga School, we care about your success! So we filled this  training with all the activities, games, and tons of practical experience so you can successfully teach yoga to children. After all, you will be teaching the yoga teachers of the future!”  Aruna, Young Yoga Masters

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
