If you love yoga, and you love children, come join us for mini yogis yoga for kids foundation teacher training!

Shana has conducted hundreds of yoga for kids teacher training certifications all over the world since 2002. She is one of the originating pioneers of the children's yoga movement and the only teacher on earth who is internationally renowned in both the children's and adult yoga spaces. Foundation Trainings focus primarily on teaching yoga to kids ages 3-11, and Advanced Training focuses on teaching teens, preteens, and 'tweens. Both will earn you Yoga Alliance CEUs/CECs.

You can hear Shana's podcast about mini yogis Teacher Training Certification
and the fun, benefits and challenges of working with kids here.

Each training is structured in a condensed ten-hour format that promises more learning than you would ever get in even 20 or 30 hours elsewhere. That's because not only does Shana conduct all her own trainings, but she keeps it fun, interesting, and interactive, so you never get bored and are always fully engaged. You will learn how to take the yoga you already know and transform it into something  magically cool for kids.

It's a tiny investment that pays itself off in the first few classes you teach and in huge dividends! After just one ten-hour weekend with Shana, teachers are earning tens of thousands of dollars, year over year, teaching yoga to children. You will never find an investment with higher returns...and this is an investment not only in yourself but in our future generations.

And if you want a deeper and completely personalized experience, Shana also offers private and private group trainings tailored exclusively to your unique goals and experience level.

"I had such a wonderful time [at your teacher training] and it was so inspiring. I've read other books and material on teaching kids, but nothing has particularly grabbed me, but I really can see how your style will work...I feel very priveleged to have met you and to have learned from you."
