We're excited to offer eLearning courses. eCourses are a way for you to access information on specific topics related to teaching Yoga to children and families - even if you can't make it to training in person.
Each course contains information and instruction on a topic along with pertinent Yoga practices and techniques.
I have been using the techniques from these lessons in my classroom, and I already am seeing results in terms of the engagement of the children (even those who in the past may have said 'no' to yoga). I definitely intend to keep trying them! I appreciate so much being able to learn at home at a price that for the moment is a much better fit for my finances than a full-out teacher training. I hope there will be more!

This is PERFECT for me to share with the kiddos I work with (and live with)! The illustrations are wonderful, easy to understand. Thank you for offering this course.
