This 40 hour, accredited Yoga Alliance Professionals further training course, will train you to teach yoga to children aged between 12 months up to the age of 5 years, covering toddler & family yoga classes and yoga to children in a nursery or pre-school setting.  This course will enable you to teach yoga in a fun, authentic and engaging manner, to toddlers and pre-schoolers, either setting up your own classes or teaching in nurseries and early years settings. The course is delivered through self-paced study, with tutor interaction and support throughout, via a creative mix of training videos, online manual resources, class observations, 1:2:1 mentor sessions, assignments and video feedback.

Who is the course for?

Yoga teachersThe course is open to all qualified or trainee yoga teachers from any school or tradition.  Pregnancy, mum & baby or children yoga teachers in particular may feel this is natural progression in their teaching career.  Teachers must have a passion to share yoga with this younger age group and enjoy working with younger children.

Yoga practitioners from other professions: Non-qualified yoga teachers are welcome to apply if they come from a related profession including Early Years Foundation educators.  This course would particularly suit those working in nurseries and other childcare settings that wish offer toddler and pre-school yoga sessions within childcare settings. All non-qualified yoga teachers must have been practising yoga for at least two years and have attended a minimum of 40 hours of yoga classes.  

Further prerequisites

All students should be safe to work with young children, having an up-to-date Enhanced Disclosure (CRB check) is not a prerequisite of the course, but is preferable. And all students should be in a position to obtain one when they start teaching and come into contact with children, as this will be a prerequisite for anyone working within any childcare setting.

Time commitment

Due to the online nature of the course there is more flexibility to fit the course around every day life and work. You can join the course anytime and it takes between 6-12 weeks to work through the course and complete assignments, dedicating roughly 4/5 hours a week, however some students take longer or shorter time depending on their other time commitments and previous teaching experience.

Self-paced training video example

 

"I was initially hesitant about whether an online Toddler Yoga Teacher Training course would suit me. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the online course. Amy incorporated lots of videos which gave the feeling of being in the classroom with her anyway. Her enthusiasm for teaching this age group is infectious. The online site was well organised and simple to follow even for a technophobe like myself. Amy was always on hand for one to one support on Zoom chat and the group chats were very helpful too. Doing the online course enabled me to complete the course in my own time and at my own pace which suited me very well with work and family commitments. Amy gave encouraging and detailed feedback on my assignments. I would highly recommend Toddler Yoga Teacher Training with Amy Yoga."
