To thrive in life, children need a strong internal compass. They need skills and resources to navigate the seas of life through sunny days and storms. Yoga teaches these skills. Yoga is that internal compass. Yoga helps a child become the captain of his own ship.

This course is the online version of our comprehensive Children's Yoga Specialty Training. We'll teach you the deeper science of Yoga. And, we'll show you how simple it can be to share with the children in your life. This empowers you to be a positive change maker. You become part of the solution.

With Yoga, kids experience physical, mental/emotional and spiritual wellbeing. They experience connection on 4 levels:

  • Connection to themselves
  • Connection to others
  • Connection to the natural world
  • Connection to Source

Why Yoga For Children?

Children love Yoga. They love the movement and creative expression associated with the poses (called Yoga asanas). They appreciate the benefits and they cherish the opportunity to "rest" at the end of each class.  Yoga helps kids feel like themselves again.

Yoga can give children the ability to:

  • Develop strength, flexibility and coordination - of both body and mind
  • Improve focus - to ace that crazy hard math test
  • Raise self-awareness - to learn when to say when, whether it's peer pressure to try drugs or grabbing another fistful of chocolate chip cookie bars
  • Build self-esteem - a key factor for success in life
  • Release stress and relax completely - because bodies don't grow and brains don't work under stressful conditions
  • Sleep better - for healthy growth and a healthy life!
  • Breathe well - so the whole mind/body system functions optimally
  • Regulate moods and energy - so whether they are super talkative and silly or slumped over with eyes half open, children know how to find balance
  • Cultivate healthy habits - for a lifetime of wellbeing
  • Generate a sense of inner peace and contentment they can share with the world
