*These online classes can be combined with past in-person Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® trainings or future in-person trainings to become eligible to be a certified RCYT. Today, we are faced with a humbling environment where we are not sure when we will be able to host in-person meetings. However, yoga and mindfulness teach us to be open to change and receptive to different ways of sharing these tools. Yogiños: Yoga for Youth®’s mission is to offer real-time tools to help counsel children and tweens toward a personal and meaningful yoga and mindfulness practice, no matter the location.
