About Young Yoga Masters Kids Yoga Teacher Training

Testimonials from Participants:

“If I didn’t get the real experience of teaching kids in the Kids Camp, I wouldn’t have had the confidence to go out and position myself as a kids yoga teacher.  The kids camp gave me experience to put on my resumes and proposals.

It taught me how to adapt and adjust my yoga classes teaching adults to teaching children including children with different needs.  Observing the other teachers in the training taught me classroom management techniques and I shared my skills teaching yoga.  It was a deeply rewarding training.”

– Karen


 You Shared Things that Worked and Things to Avoid

 “I will use the techniques in my work with children. Aruna (Santokh) has personal insight into the responses of children and willingness to share things that worked and things that did not.”

 – Dr. Leslie Cohen,

Educational Consultant


Thank you so much for a wonderful session!

 “During the session my students were actively engaged and even chimed in as Janet read her book. They came back to the class wanting to try out some of the poses they learned, and according to parents the kids were trying the poses all weekend!

 As a fellow ‘Yogini’ this session sparked my interest again, and showed me that it doesn’t matter who you are, or what age you are, Yoga has so many benefits that everyone can enjoy!”
