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?
The training will be held at the beautiful beach side resort, Villa Sayulita.
We have private king-size rooms in the stunning beach-side resort, which features its own pool, outdoor lounge and secret garden.
Breakfast will be served in the garden terrace besides one of our open air yoga-spaces
Do you dream of being immersed in golden sand, deep blue ocean waves and lush greenery? Strolling through tree-lined, cobbled streets, passing colonial buildings and quirky coffeshops. Colourful lanterns and traditional flags above the streets, surfers run to catch the last rays of sun as the streets fill with salsa music.
The bohemian town of Sayulita on the Pacific Coast of Mexico offers this and much more.
Private room at the beautiful Villa Sayulita for the duration of the course
Breakfast in the Secret Garden each morning
All Tuition Fees and Yoga Alliance certificate

One of the absolute highlights of this programme is the opportunity to teach with the children of the local outreach programme.
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.

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
Making Yoga Philosophy & Hindu Mythology relevant and interesting for all ages
Incorporating story-telling, play, music, movement, dance, writing and group discussion into yoga
Breathing and meditation techniques to support and enhance children's emotional and mental health
