Overview Yoga4Kids has successfully been presenting children’s yoga training programs in South Africa since 2005. Our Teacher Training Modules have inspired and motivated many incredible people to bring yoga, mindfulness and wellbeing to children at home, in the classroom, in therapeutic environments and for non-profit outreach programs. Our training is focused on opening the portal to your inner child so that you are able to heal and remember how to play and work with children on the mat. It is an intensive program that re-ignites your imagination and awakens your creativity.
Description of Training Levels The Yoga4Kids Teacher Training path may vary depending on each trainee's current level of yoga experience. Generally speaking, trainees are encouraged to start with Module 1 followed by Module 2. You may then decide to complete additional courses to acquire a more specialised skill set.
Your Certification as a Children’s Yoga Instructor
You will be certified/accredited to teach nationally after successful completion of Module 1. This course is also accredited through the Yoga Teachers Fellowship of Southern Africa. Please ask for the endorsement letter that verifies this should you so wish.
You will be certified/accredited to teach internationally (by the Yoga Teachers Fellowship which is recognized Internationally as is the Yoga Alliance) after successful completion of Modules 1 – 2.
Because the completion of Modules 1 & 2 enable you to be accredited to teach yoga to children nationally and internationally, careful documentation of your training is essential throughout. Yoga4Kids will provide you with these tracking documents and explain how to use them. This careful tracking and evaluation of your training is part of the unique training experience offered by Yoga4Kids.
Who Should Take This Training? The Yoga4Kids Teacher Training is for yoga teachers, teachers at school, therapists and any person interested in starting a new career teaching children’s yoga. It requires that you have a very good understanding and knowledge of yoga and its disciplines. Where you begin this life-long learning process is entirely up to you. However it is imperative that you learn the way of yoga and are in a practice of yoga in order to be a productive teacher.
Our Children’s Yoga Teacher Training is about teaching children how to:
Have fun in a creative & non-competitive space,
Form a loving & confident relationship with self,
Live in harmony with self & others,
Balance mind, body & self,
Change state & manage energy levels, and
