TEACH KIDS YOGA (EPONA YOGA) INSTRUCTOR TRAINING

Most instructors of Teach Kids Yoga already have some familiarity with yoga and have experience working with children.   This program is an interactive course undertaken and implemented in various ways by its participants.  Most of our instructors have undertaken this training to incorporate Teach Kids Yoga into their work they already do with children (e.g. pre-school and primary school teachers). Others become certified as a way to begin either a part-time or full-time business. Certification is required in order to obtain Student Teacher insurance. This insurance is required by schools, public service organizations and in most commercial organizations when teaching within their facilities.

How Do You Become Certified?

If you are interested in becoming a Teach Kids Yoga instructor, contact us to receive instructor information details (including DVD) on the program.

The next step to becoming certified is to attend a class in your local area. This will give you a more hands-on idea of how the program works. It will also give you the opportunity to speak with a current Teach Kids Yoga instructor. We currently have teachers in all Capital Cities as well as some country areas of WA, VIC and Goulbourne.  Contact us for details of your nearest instructor.

The final step to becoming certified is to complete a comprehensive 5-day Teach Kids Yoga instructors’ course. This in-depth course covers all facets of the program. It covers in detail how yoga benefits children in all areas of their lives. Courses are offered in Australian capital cities on a regular basis.

After completing the instructors’ course, you will be eligible for insurance and will be qualified to teach the program on a provisional basis. After twenty hours of practical teaching, you will receive your Teach Kids Yoga Instructor’s Certificate.
