Why Teach Kids Yoga

KIDS YOGA by Marzia” is a method that takes into consideration the strengths, critical issues and needs of children. One of the topics covered in this course is the stress management for children and how effective and helpful yoga can be.

If you work with children as a teacher, as a therapist or if you have children, you can observe how overcharged, overbooked their life is. Yoga can be very helpful in giving children the right tools to control what’s going on in their life and to manage with their inner response.

The course deals with another important topic: the development of an educational model that helps children to grow with strength and courage. Anyone working with children has a big responsibility and should implement a teaching and evaluation system that takes into consideration children’s emotions.

In recent years, a new line of research has developed: Warm Cognition. Our brain fixes all kind of information together with emotions and emotions, in turns, affect attention, memory, understanding.

Yoga practice helps in develop awareness and promotes in children the process of recognition of one’s personality. It’s a path of growth that helps children to answer the question: Who am I?

In this sense,  a well-educated Kids Yoga teacher can play a tremendously important educational role.

Why Teach Teen Yoga

YOGA FOR TEENS” is a method that is born from observing the unique needs of teenagers.

One of the topics covered in this course is the stress management for teens and how effective and helpful yoga can be. Yoga can be very helpful in giving teens the right tools to control what’s going on in their life and to manage with their inner response.

The course deals with another important topic: The effects of changing body. Yoga practice helps teenagers in developing awareness of their body and promotes in them the process of recognition of their own personality. It’s a path of growth that helps children to answer the question: Who am I?

Anyone working with teens (and children of course) has a big responsibility and should implement a teaching and evaluation system that takes into consideration emotions. Through the course you’ll develop an educational model in order to help teens grow with strength and courage.

What will you learn

Here is an overview of what you will learn in this 50-hour online Teen & Children's Yoga Teacher Training Course

Kids Yoga Curriculum Overview

The course is divided in 3 Sections:


In SECTION A you’ll go through a detailed information about how yoga can be part of the general education, enriching and giving value to each single child, guiding each individual towards the recognition of the main aspects of his own personality; you’ll learn how yoga practice can change according to age, as well as common goals and differences between yoga and any other physical activity. This information will be very useful to explain parents why they should send their kids to yoga.
