Happy September! It’s back-to-school time which gives us no better reason and no greater joy to host this wonderful opportunity to learn the ABCs of being a kids yoga teacher. In collab with Yogi Beans, a super cool kids yoga studio in NYC, we’re happy to be giving away one FULL scholarship to their Basic Kids Yoga Teacher Training coming up in October. How ’bout them apples? (heh)
If you’re a yoga teacher and have been thinking about working with kids, or maybe you’re a school teacher and want to hone in on your yoga chops for the classroom, this might be the perfect time to take the plunge. Free training opportunities don’t come around too often. Plus, besides being incredibly rewarding, teaching kids yoga also looks like a pretty fun time.
More details below!
Yogi Beans has a mission to honor the innate energies of children’s bodies, minds and hearts through yoga.
Yogi Beans was formed in 2010 and since then they’ve built an educational and fun program offering yoga to kids ages 2-10, and even adapting their syllabus to meet the needs of children in over 30 private and public schools throughout New York City, Westchester, New Jersey, and Los Angeles. Their teaching is designed to “develop children’s abilities to focus (attention), stand up straight (posture), move their limbs with control (coordination) and grace (flexibility), and find inner strength (self–confidence).” Read more about YB and their specialized TT program here.

TO ENTER: Kids across the country are headed back to school right now. AHH! Even though we’re well past our elementary days, we just can’t seem to shake that back-to-school feeling (read: jitters, nerves and excitement!). In a way, we’re all students still, right? But if we had the chance to tell our younger jittery selves a piece of advice we surely would. For this giveaway, let’s have some fun and all jump back in our time machines. Share with us (and time travel you) some bit of advice that the older wiser you might’ve given your younger self if given the chance. Leave your words of wisdom in the comments below.
Submissions accepted until 11:59pm Monday, September 7th. A winner will be chosen at random and announced soon after. Good luck!
