Do you want to create a nurturing space for children and teens to express their thoughts, feelings and ideas freely?
Do you want to share essential tools with children and teens to become resilient and confident, to self-regulate, self-soothe and heal themselves independently?
Do you want to share concepts and ideas of gratitude, self-worth, awareness, respect, empathy, connection and peace?
Are you ready to spend 10 light-hearted, nourishing and playful days learning everything your need to know to confidently share all aspects of yoga and mindfulness to support children's emotional and mental health?
Divine Light Yoga & Hot Yo Studio have been playfully partnering for the last 3-years. Hot Yo is a community based studio, focused on making yoga relevant and accessible to yogis of all ages, experiences and body types.
Hot Yo is truly on a mission to support their community to lead a healthier and more balanced lifestyle.

Sekeping Serendah Retreat
We're excited to take Module 2 of this training out of the city and into the forest at the gorgeous Sekeping Serendah Retreat, just one hour North of Kuala Lumpur.
On 22nd July, we will all make our way to the beautiful resort, where we will stay for 2-nights, to continue our training, surrounded by nature. Aside from the playful, nature-based workshops that will be held in the open-air spaces and outdoor classrooms, you will have time to enjoy the pools, explore the forest, hike to the nearby waterfalls and plunge pools, relax and reflect.
It's the perfect environment to kick-start our Module 2 training!
One of the absolute highlights of this programme is the opportunity to teach with the children of the local Hot Yo community. It is such a diverse and beautiful community!
This is a wonderful chance to share your love, light and joy with disadvantaged children, that may not ordinarily have the opportunity to experience yoga play & creativity. This is guaranteed to be one of the most valuable aspects of the training and something that makes us a little unique.
Through interactive assignments, experiential learning, teaching practices and group discussions, we'll explore;
Creative, safe and age-appropriate yoga poses & sequences
Making yoga fun and engaging for little ones all the way to teens
The developing mind & body of children, including the different learning styles and how to tailor your classes to different ages & abilities
