Overview Yoga4Kids has successfully presented children’s yoga vocational training programs in South Africa since 2005. Our training has inspired and motivated many incredible people to bring yoga, mindfulness and wellbeing to children at home, in the classroom, in therapeutic environments and in 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. While it is intensive, our training will re-ignite your imagination and awaken your creativity and inner joy. Note that a minimum of five, enrolled persons are required to open any training.
The Vocational Trainings offered by Yoga4Kids include: 1.Yoga4Kids® Foundation Training (Module 1 & Module 2 both which include theoretical and practical training); and 2.Yoga4Teens® Vocational Training (1 Module which includes theoretical and practical training).
We are also in the process of finalizing our Yoga4ChildrenWithChallenges Vocational Training.
