Give the Gift of Yoga, No Matter the Age.

Become a certified children’s yoga instructor and teach the future generations social and emotional tools to manage stressful situations that they’ll use for life.

7.1% of children aged 3-17 years are diagnosed with anxiety

In today’s world, children are facing growing pressures: demanding school schedules, overexposure to technology, the distraction of the internet, and self-imposed expectations can leave children feeling restless, listless and disconnected.

Without intervention, the right care, and proper attention, the pressures of today will become the problems of tomorrow, and our future generations will fall victim to mood disorders, stress, and other developmental and social-emotional problems.

Imagine a world where:

  • Children know how to self-soothe, manage stress and anxiety, and can calm their nervous system even in difficult situations
  • Children feel comfortable expressing themselves freely, even with difficult emotions
  • Children make and keep healthy and lasting friendships
  • Children feel confident in their bodies and their abilities
  • Children can resist social pressure and make appropriate decisions for themselves
  • Children play, express their creativity, and enjoy happy, healthy childhoods
  • Children can gain awareness of what others are feeling and have the ability to use conflict resolution skills
  • Children develop and nurture an understanding of their strengths and uniqueness
  • Children’s mental, physical and emotional well-being are balanced

What Makes Our Training Unique?

We incorporate lessons of our M+P methods and character strengths, combining them with yoga techniques to offer SEL and mindfulness resources in order to help children throughout all stages of development.

Little Sage Yoga is taught using a Mindful + Pratique methodology called Symbolic Transformation. Drawing from the fields of positive psychology, mindfulness and creative and expressive arts, Symbolic Transformation becomes a tool for expanding awareness, deepening a sense of self and creating a powerful relationship with the outside world.

When applied to children, Symbolic Transformation draws from the lens of Social Emotional Learning (SEL), helping children and youths develop self awareness, relationship skills and hone their innate character strengths.

By enrolling in Little Sage Yoga, you’ll learn this unique methodology and will be equipped to enrich these aspects within children. Little Sage Yoga is more than a yoga training course. This program will give you the tools to connect with children and set them up for success!

FAQ’s

I am very busy and worried I don't have enough time. What is the time commitment for the program?
Like any investment, what you put into this program is what you’ll get out! We recommend setting aside 12 hours per week. Although 12 hours per week seems like a lot, the program is only two weeks. We have also designed this program to cover a lot of ground in a short span of time.

The virtual live training sessions are held twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays. These live sessions are six hours each day with a lunch break in between. In total, the entire program is 24 hours plus an hour of homework.

What if I can’t attend the live trainings?

All of the training sessions are recorded. If you cannot attend a live class, you can access the recorded session and complete the tasks in your own time.

I'm already a qualified yoga teacher. How will this program help me?

Completing a 200-hour certification (or more) usually doesn’t involve training around yoga for children. Little Sage Yoga is a very specific certification in kid’s yoga that’ll complement your 200 hour YTT certification. As well as learning how to teach children yoga poses, you’ll also learn how to facilitate art activities and also foster character strengths within them.

Will I get a certification?

After completing this 25 hour Little Sage Yoga training, you’ll receive a certificate of completion from Mindful + Pratique / Little Sage Yoga. You will then be eligible for the 95 hour certification, which is certifect via Yoga Alliance.  Once you have your 200 hours with Yoga Alliance, and have taught the required number of classes, you can advance your credentials to include being a registered children’s yoga teacher (R-CYT) through Yoga Alliance.

What do I need to bring to the classes?

Bring your readiness to learn, a yoga mat, and a writing utensil and paper (or a prefered way to take notes). The art activities require basic materials which will need to be purchased or sourced beforehand. A list of materials and supplies will be provided to you in advance of the training sessions. Please also have either the digital workbook available or bring the printed version (a copy will be mailed to you).
