Yogiños: Yoga for Youth®’s Children’s Yoga Teacher Training Program* is presently offered online via LIVE STREAMING through July 2020! This specialized training is led by our founder, Beth Reese, PhD, E-RYT, RCYT, YACEP, and Meredith Paterson, MA, RYT, RCYT, featuring guest experts and teachers.

This training features:

  • Tools and techniques for teaching yoga postures, breathing exercises and mindfulness practices to tweens and teens including discussing intersections and research of mindfulness, yoga, the changing teenage body and related neuroscience, explicit and implicit bias, inclusion, equity, diversity, and race;​
  • Specific practices for empowering tweens/teens to cope with common stressors and transitions, including depression and anxiety, test anxiety, body image, pressure from friends and family, career planning, and goal setting
  • In-depth exploration of functional anatomy, the benefits of yoga postures and practices, and how to safely sequence postures
  • How to adapt yoga classes for studios, schools, workshops, and camps
  • A weekend of transformational demonstrations, discussions and activities with your friends, colleagues, and Yogiños Leaders;
  • Interactive experiences facilitating and demonstrating team-building, cooperation and tolerance
  • Information about starting your own youth yoga business;
  • Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® Curriculum eManual, A to Z Bilingual eBook of Poses, Tweens and Teens eManual, support to complete your Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® certification.

As a result of this program, we believe participants will be able to:

  • Conceive, design and teach age-appropriate theme-based tween and teen yoga classes
  • Practice and teach all 8 Limbs of Yoga, including poses (asana) and breathing (pranayama)
  • Understand and use age-appropriate and safe forms of yoga, including games and related activities, to engage youth physically, emotionally, and mentally
  • Modify lessons for various audiences and age groups
  • Learn, practice and weave multiple intelligences and tween/teen-based developmental theories into your yoga classes
  • Use yoga for kids as a means to teach tools and techniques to empower audiences to respond mindfully rather than react irrationally

*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.
