The experience of teaching all ages of children from tots to 12 year olds in the kids camp was terrific. This program was well organized and the preparation for the course was so detailed and perfect! I now have manuals, books, and props, to implement at the studio where I currently teach! Both teachers Aruna Humphrys and Janet Williams are stars in their practice and discipline of yoga.  Thank you.

A Fulfilling Career and A Bond With My Own Children

That I Wouldn’t Trade for Anything…

“The 95 Hour training really helped my own yoga practice. I learned about safe and correct postures, meditations that I have come to love and met some really fantastic people in the industry.

After taking only one of the modules and experiencing the Kids Camp, I felt confident enough to approach schools to start teaching. Using my background in marketing I was teaching children after only one weekend of training. Eight months later, by the end of the training, I have taught over 150 kids yoga classes. This training was a good investment. I have already earned back my investment in the course and more because I have already taught over 150 classes.

After working in the corporate world for over 15 years, I was searching for a more self-fulfilling career. This Kids Yoga Teacher Training has not only provided me a fulfilling career, but has also given me a bond with my own children that I wouldn’t trade for anything. The special yoga time we now share as a family is priceless.”
