Discover how to bring yoga and mindfulness to the tweens and teens in your life.
Yoga and mindfulness bring a plethora of benefits such as forming healthy habits, reduced stress, and increasing self-awareness, emotional regulation, focus, empathy, and kindness.
Learn how working with teens is different, what to expect when working with children ages 11-18, and how to adapt to working with them.

Because teaching children’s yoga is much more than yoga poses, we see this course as a pathway to mature as an educator, parent, instructor, counselor, or whatever role you hold or plan to hold. Go beyond the poses by incorporating mindfulness, self-reflection and self-inquiry, art, meditation, positive self-talk, relaxation, student-lead programming, and more.
