Why kids yoga?
Current brain, academic and cardiovascular research provide scientific evidence that practices related specifically to yoga and breathing techniques offer:


~ 27% increase in GABA levels (calmness, anti-anxiety);


~ Improved academic achievement through learning how to improve focus and handle stress;


~ Increased academic interest as a result of providing integrated movement in traditionally sedentary, academic settings;


~ Interactive experiences with team-building, cooperation and tolerance.

Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® is an official Registered Children's Yoga School with Yoga Alliance. The trainings you take with us can be applied toward the 95 hour Registered Children's Yoga Teacher (RCYT) credential. We have created 5 training modules that can be taken in any order but one at a time. Taking 4 of the 5 training modules equals the 95 hours required for RCYT status. We recommend starting with Module 1 as some of the content is sequential, but you may start with any of the 5 modules. Please note you must be working toward or already be a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) to receive the official RCYT status.

Professional therapists may benefit from this training by learning creative, developmentally appropriate, fun ways of engaging and supporting children with special needs in the practice of yoga. This program is appropriate for Yoga teachers and parents, teachers and therapists with a personal yoga practice who are interested in incorporating yoga into their work with children.
