UPDATE: We are focusing on our online content in 2015, developing a second course (about running a Kids Yoga business) but we plan to be back doing face-to-face workshops in 2016. For info on our online course have a look here.
Here are some recent graduates talking about their experiences of kids yoga teacher training workshops:

The course is an immersive and inspiring experience. We recommend that all students practice yoga themselves and have some experience with children. We provide a comprehensive and detailed manual, plus a posture book, and a wide range of class plans and kids yoga related games and songs so you can get started as soon as you finish the training.
