Our Teacher Training Program is a comprehensive certification in yoga and mindfulness practices for children and youth ages 3 to 18. Certified by Yoga Alliance, training focuses on the complete physical, mental, emotional and social wellbeing of students. Participants will leave training with the tools to help children connect to themselves & their community, access the calming power of their breath, develop focus & concentration, feel strong and confident through physical movement, and learn how to nurture themselves through relaxation.

Our mentorship program is an opportunity for you to bring your training to life and experience what yoga in a classroom really feels like. Each participant is matched with a mentor teacher based on their schedule and interests. You will spend time observing, assisting and teaching in a school yoga program, and have the opportunity to receive feedback on your teaching. You can begin your mentorship program at any stage of training. It is a required part of our full certification, but can also be taken on its own as an introduction to the Little Flower teaching method.
Each mentorship includes 18 in-school hours, and 2 hours of feedback and consultation. Tuition is $300, however there is no charge for this program if you are registered for all
three levels of our Teacher Certification.
One day workshops offer you the most essential elements of teaching yoga to children. These workshops do not provide certification, but they give you activities that you can use right away with your students or your own children, and participants can earn Yoga Alliance Continuing Education credits.
