6-Day Online Advanced Children’s Yoga Teacher Training
This 6-day online advanced children’s yoga teacher training will continue to nurture your knowledge and understanding of children’s yoga and mindfulness.
This is run over 2 x 3 day weekends online with a combination of live zoom meet ups and recorded workshops. An in depth teacher’s platform is provided with many extra resources.
What do we cover?
We delve more deeply into all aspects of yoga for toddlers to teenagers, exploring anatomy and physiology, social and emotional development, asana, mindfulness and meditation.
You will learn more about classroom management, lesson planning, chair yoga, coming of age circles, group and partner poses, pranayama, vinyasa, massage, mudra, mantra, chakras and nutrition with an intro to ayurveda.
What is the assessment
This advanced part of our 95hr children’s yoga training focuses on all ages from 2 – 18 years. We do however place more emphasis on understanding the development and complex needs of working with young people 12 – 18 years.
Your assessment for this children’s yoga training will be based on your final teaching practical. You will be teaching and recording a hands-on teen yoga class to be evaluated by the lead trainer and fellow teachers. More information on this will be provided on the training.
We also explore working with neurodiverse students, looking at how we can support their additional needs in a fully inclusive yoga and mindfulness class.
Throughout this children’s yoga teacher training, your own yoga practice and inner exploration as a children’s yoga teacher will continue to deepen. Together we will look further at how to get your classes up and running, how best to approach schools, setting up your yoga business and tackling social media. We look forward to introducing you to some great guest teachers.
The 6 day advanced teacher training is open to students who have completed the YogaBeez 4 day foundation course. We also accept children’s yoga teachers who have undertaken other specific children’s yoga training courses with a minimum of 32 hours and some teaching experience.

Online or in-person retreat
As well as our online advanced teacher training, we are now also offering it as an in-person ‘Living your Yoga’ retreat.
This 5 day in-person training will continue to nurture your knowledge and understanding of children’s yoga and mindfulness and the Advanced Course qualifies you to teach tweens and teenagers too. We also explore neurodiversity and supporting children with additional needs.Each morning will start with an asana practice that you could also share with tweens and teens. We will explore pranayama, mantra chanting and many forms of meditation. The days will be filled with explorations of the advanced training curriculum – see below for what we cover – as well as walks, saunas, ice baths (if you like), temples, mindful practices, kirtan and some karma yoga to experience a bit of “ashram style” living.
It will be a FULL immersion into all aspects of yoga – for your teaching but also for you personally as a teacher.
