Kids Yoga Teacher Training (Spring 2024)

May 2 - June 2

Young Folk: Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Alexandra Rossi, E-RYT 500 


If you love yoga, there’s no better way to spread the love than to teach yoga to kids! At Folk Yoga School, we offer a two-part training called Young Folk, in which you can study and train to be a yoga teacher for young folks! The Kids Yoga Teacher Training is for parents, yoga teachers, school teachers, educators or those working with children 4-12 years old. Lighting the torch of yoga in the hearts of the next generation is a powerful way to help shape our world!


Our Kids Yoga Teacher Training was built on the philosophy that children learn best when playing. The program focuses on supporting the development of mindfulness in children, learning the neuroscience of child development, understanding best practices for communicating with kids, and bringing yoga to children in their own words. 


In this training, you will learn how to:


  • Creatively teach yoga postures to children 
  • Creatively teach mindfulness and exercise to kids
  • Guide children in different stages of mental and emotional development 
  • Communicate and interact with parents and schools
  • Understand and talk about pediatric anatomy
  • Teach to neurodiverse children  


This training consists of lecture, personal practice, and teaching practice. Participants will explore a personal meditation practice while in training to develop the ability to authentically share yoga and mindfulness with youth. For registered yoga teachers (200 RYT or above), you must take both this course and the Teens Yoga Teacher Training to receive Yoga Alliance’s Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT) Certification.
