This course will cultivate your knowledge and understanding of children's yoga, social-emotional learning and creating resilient youth

Can you imagine if every child was given the opportunity to develop their inner knowing? What if all children were equipped with the emotional and intellectual tools that are much needed to face the challenges they will encounter along their life's journey?

This is our opportunity to create something meaningful that will nurture the next generation of conscious change-makers.

Yoga for Kids Bali provides a holistic and sustainable Kids Yoga Teacher Training that will grow the whole child with creativity woven into all aspects of learning.

Our focus is on emotional intelligence, self-confidence, resilience, community awareness, and values.

Our Vision:

We believe that every child walks their life path. Our role is to stimulate and support motivation from within. By encouraging the discovery and learning opportunities from the child’s natural interests, we build their self-confidence and love for learning. We give children as much space, as possible, to discover and create and be free to explore their instincts and gain life skills and knowledge through their own unique personal experiences.

We are trying to create a better world so our children can relate to it and understand how crucial this is.

Our Purpose

Yoga for Kids Bali’s core educational philosophy is that all children are born with a natural and insatiable curiosity and that people learn best in non-coerced, self-directed situations. We are inspired by how integral teaching sees the child as rich, resilient and resourceful, and always in relationship with his/her environment encompassing an all-inclusive survey of the human experience. The mentor is a patient observer and moderator, with the ability to step back and allow discussion and discovery.

By learning alongside us you can provide countless opportunities for children to explore a world without boundaries. We help preserve the natural love of learning that people are born with. Yoga for Kids Bali allows children the freedom to thrive socially, intellectually, experientially, academically, creatively, and personally.

Our Yoga for Kids Teacher Training is for:

● Adults wanting to learn how to teach yoga to children and teens. Therapists, educators, and other professionals wanting to enhance their skill set.

● Parents and caregivers who are wanting to introduce yoga and mindfulness into the lives of children and teens.

● Certified Yoga Teachers who want to add to their continued learning.

● Entrepreneurs wanting to start a new business working with children.

● Anyone who wants to invest in themselves would be of benefit to children for years to come.


How we do it:

We aim to develop the following 4 lines of Enquiry: Body, Soul, Mind, and Spirit. Our curriculum is thus a system where we integrate a 'whole person' education with a fully holistic approach.

We include age-appropriate yoga and mindfulness for children and teens to support you on your journey with yoga on the yoga mat or classroom environment.

We explore traditional yoga ethics and philosophy, basic anatomy and physiology, mindfulness and meditation for children, classroom management, childhood development, group, and partner poses as well as an opportunity to teach a hands-on children yoga class.

You will learn how to introduce the benefits of yoga to children in age-appropriate and creative ways. You will learn yoga practices to down-regulate, release stress, ground and calm the body and mind as well as practice up-regulating activities to energize and match the needs of the task at hand.

As you delve deeper into yourself as a yoga and mindfulness teacher for kids and teens, your yoga practice and inner child exploration will continue to deepen.

During this training, we will also have a couple of specialty teachers and a traditional Balinese healer joining the team and sharing their knowledge about mandala, movement, and music therapy.

On the last day of the training, you will get to use your new set of skills for a hands-on experience teaching yoga and mindfulness to children. (Bali Only)
