Fall 2019 | yoga alliance certified


Director: Lara Hocheiser of Flow & Grow Kids Yoga

Upon completion, students will be certified to teach Kids Yoga & Mindfulness programs with 20 CE hours in Kids Yoga.

Now more than ever, kids are in need of healthy skills to manage stress and cope with difficult emotions. Increased school workloads, heightened expectations, even social and political adversity can increase a child’s stress level. Integrating yoga and mindfulness practices into their lives not only helps kids to relax when they feel upset, discouraged, or depressed; but it also helps them to live in a state of higher awareness and put their stresses into perspective. Just like adults, kids who practice yoga are more likely to be focused, less reactive, and live happier, healthier lives.

Flow & Grow Kids Yoga Teacher Training is ideal for educators, clinicians, childcare workers, parents, and anyone who loves working with children and teens. The weekend training teaches participants how to create a dynamic curriculum that stimulates, empowers, calms, and strengthens our next generation. Learn child development, classroom management, the impact of praise, and other relevant theories and practices regarding yoga and education. Leave with the tools to empower children to become strong, mindful, balanced individuals and leaders!
