Yoga for Youth with Differing Needs and Unexpected Life Changes, covers the foundations of working with youth who experience differences such as autism, sensory processing challenges, ADHD, emotional disturbance, trauma, and other cognitive, emotional, and physical challenges.

New to this training, Yoga for Youth with Differing Needs and Unexpected Life Changes, we are including information and practices to support parents and teachers who may be encountering new challenges because of COVID-19 (increased anxiety, depression, difficulties with focus and concentration, and reduction in social interaction, ruminating with fear) and in preparation for what may be a hybrid (online and in-person) next school year. This training will also demonstrate and discuss practices for teaching in an on-line environment.


“Yoginos yoga for youth is an incredible program for kids and adults. The trainings create a sense of peace and knowledge that you can bring anywhere. Beth is a wealth of knowledge and she surrounds herself with a team of creative people. Thank you for all you do..”~ Eve Margol, MA, Founder, LinkEducation Resources

  • 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.
