Children's Yoga Teacher Training Course


Children's Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga as an after-school club activity in schools is increasingly attracting interest within school staff and parents alike. Through Yoga, children are given an opportunity to express themselves in a physical and fun but precise and gentle way as well as practise mind-body techniques to tune in to their emotions. It is also a unique non-competitive physical activity that all children can equally take part in.

You will be embarking on a 4-day Teacher Training Course (2 x 1.5 Day over 2 consecutive weekends) with the aims to be fully qualified to teach Children Yoga in Schools within weeks of completing your Teacher Training course. You will be given the opportunity to practice your teaching skills in the training room and at home (coursework) as well as observe real classes in school. We encourage you to start teaching as soon as your training course is completed.

Course Details

Children's Yoga Teacher Training Objectives

This course will give you a full understanding of how to successfully structure a 45 mins Yoga class to children of 4-11 years old.

Each section of the lesson plans will be reviewed and practised in the training room so that you understand how to best make use of them in your own style.

You will learn about children development stages and learning skills, schools expectations and how to build lesson plans, sequence Yoga poses in a fun and beneficial way and teach relaxation and breathing techniques.

What's more, you will be observing Yoga lessons taught in a real class environment by your course leader. You will be fully confident to deliver tried and tested lesson plans by the time you are certified.

  1. Katrina

    I really enjoyed the children’s yoga Teacher Training course. Laurence’s passion for yoga is clear and she did a great job of teaching our class all of the elements of children’s yoga, including topics such as discipline and practical tips on engaging younger children. The course weaves in the philosophy of yoga and how it can be communicated to children in a way they can understand. It was great to see how by the end of the second weekend all of us on the course knew how to structure and deliver an engaging class. The weekends are intense and packed full of info and practical learning. This worked well for me and I was really pleased that once I had focused on my written coursework I was qualified and could start teaching the classes locally straight away.
    I would definitely recommend this teacher training to anyone passionate to bringing yoga to schools and in private classes – you leave feeling enthusiastic and confident about what you can offer.

  2. marianne frith

    I really enjoyed this course. Working within a supportive group setting with lots of practical work as well as theory, really prepared for teaching straight away.
    Laurence guided us through the many areas of teaching yoga to children. All of the elements to teaching yoga to children were covered and supported with the tools needed to deliver this in a class setting. Seeing how this was then put in to practice with a real class to observe within the course was super helpful too.

  3. Jess

    Great course. Covers the many aspects of teaching yoga to children – poses, breath work, games, stories, growth mindset, lessons themes, planning etc. Feel equipped to teach after just 4 days. Good to practice too during the course! Would definitely recommend.

  4. Lauren

    Thank you Laurence (And your community of young yogis) for your time, expertise and support during this training which was creative and insightful. You made the process exploratory and fun and were so open to sharing knowledge. I thoroughly enjoyed the course.
