Anxious to Awesome™


Become a Certified Anxious to Awesome™ Facilitator

The demand to support children moving through anxious feelings has never been greater. Because of this, we are pulling our specialty program, Anxious to Awesome™, out of our Therapeutic Applications of  Yoga for Children training and offering it as a standalone weekend training.

Once you have completed this training, you will be prepared to offer our signature 6-week course for children ages 6 - 16. You'll also have the resources to offer these strategies in small segments throughout your day as a parent, school teacher, therapist or other pediatric professional. 


Anxiety in Children is Prevalent and Pervasive

Conservative estimates are that 20% of school-age children experience anxiety to the extent that it disrupts their quality of life. This can include physical issues such as tummy trouble or headaches. It can also interfere with a child's ability to socialize or participate in activities.
The numbers are even higher with teenagers. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly 32% of adolescents have an anxiety disorder. Of adolescents with an anxiety disorder, an estimated 8.3% have a severe impairment (according to DSM-IV criteria).

And that was before Covid. There are a lot of children who need your help!

The CDC reports that children with anxiety or depression were more likely than those without to have:

  • Another mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disability, or speech or language problems
  • Other chronic health conditions, like asthma or hearing problems
  • Challenges with school
  • Parents who report high levels of stress and frustration with parenting
  • Unmet medical and mental health service needs
