This specialized Kids Yoga training is like no other!  Of course we cover yoga poses, stories, games, and songs that prepare you to teach yoga to kids. But we go further to also give you meaningful kids yoga that is more than pretending to be animals.

We playfully use real yoga and meditation that combats the stress that today's kids face. Giving kids a true experience of yoga, you'll connect with kids in a more meaningful way. Plus you learn to develop  new classes with your own themes and topics.

I really enjoyed the teacher training program at Tula since it made me more aware of my body and how the postures in class will benefit me. The training program has encouraged me to become more physically fit due to yoga attendance requirements 3 X a week. I find I have developed a healthier perspective on life and am more receptive to what my body and mind need. I also feel more confident in helping others since I know how to do the postures correctly, I also know how to do adjustments. I strongly recommend joining this teacher training program if you are health-oriented and willing to help others. It also encourages more self-awareness and spiritual growth to help balance life, which is really important in this fast paced environment.
