FAQs

Q: Do I have to take the modules in order?

A: No you don't have to. It is beneficial to do so as they build upon each other. But they can be attended in a manner that suits your timetable and learning. We have different payment schedules available to pay per module, or non-sequential pre-booked all 6 & sequential Early Bird offers.

Q: Do I have to attend them all?

A: Attend the modules that suit your interests most. If you are only ever going to teach teenagers then simply attend Module 4 - Teen Travellers. Likewise if you are only interested in teaching the littlest yogis then Module 3 is the one for you! If you are interested in learning how to support the growing child then all 6 modules is the training for you. Note: Spaces are limited on the TT and we offer priory to the students who have registered for the entire course. Refer to the Terms & Conditions for information on refunds and cancellation policies.

Q: Will I get to see children doing yoga in this training? Can my own child participate?

A: During the training we will be holding free demo yoga classes for you to observe and an invitation for these classes will be made available to the local community. If you have a child or know someone who may be interested in participating for that particular age group please let us know when you register or when you see this invitation go out.

Q: I have never done yoga before but would really like to learn about Children's Yoga, can I take the Training?

A: Sadly, no, we would not recommend you join our course until you have one years practice of yoga before registering for the course. In this training we make use of poses and terms that are specific to the ancient practices of yoga and we would encourage all participants to have a basic understanding of those before undertaking this training.

Q: What's the homework requirements on this course?

A: For the first four modules there is an at home teaching practicum required to be certified. This involves teaching students and submitting coursework up to 60 days after the last day of the training. There will be pop quizzes and written assignments as well in some modules.

Q: Do I need to be a 200-hour Yoga Teacher already?

A: This training is open to all whether you are a yoga teacher or not. All we ask is that you have a minimum of 1 years yoga practice before you sign up.That way you will be familiar with the yoga practice and some of the terms you will hear in the training. If however you wish to receive the Yoga Alliance RCYT accreditation then yes you will need to have the 200hr TT under your belt at least by the time you complete your training.

To know all about Yoga Alliance USA's & Yoga Australia certifications please refer to their websites for all the prerequisites.

Q: When will I get my certificate?

A: Once you have attended the training dates then submitted your at home course practicums we will email you the certification as a pdf. This will show that you have not only attended a training but also taught students to receive the highest level certification. For the two modules that do not have any at home practicums you will receive those certificates of attendance once the course has completed via email. For the full 95-hour certificate this will either be presented in person if all course requirements have been met in time for the last day of the training, otherwise it will be emailed to you as a pdf.

Q: Who can attend this training?

A: If you have a passion for yoga wish to share the benefits of yoga with children of all ages (and their families) then this is the training for you! This training is great for continuing educational units for yoga teachers, school teachers and educators. Therapists and other health care providers who work with children will also find inspiration and effective ways to bring yoga into their work environment. Parents and all generations of family members who may wish to play & educate children with the ancient traditions of yoga will find plenty to keep your holidays, weekends and daily lives enriched with practices that support one another to live a fun-loving, happy, healthy life no matter what your age!
