The Rainbow Kids Yoga Style
Yoga is a great way for kids to increase awareness of themselves, others, and the world, while having fun! Yoga is a wonderful way for children to stay (or become) confident, strong, balanced, and healthy.
Yoga engages a child's natural, boundless energy, and conveys valuable lessons in positive thinking, body and mind awareness.
We believe that kids learn best when they’re having fun!
Each Rainbow Kids Yoga class is alive with magical journeys where we meet with animals, fly an airplane or drive a car, grow into a tree, or imitate the ocean waves, all in the form of dynamic yoga poses.
We use music and song, lots of silly props, games, stories, relaxation and visualization, meditation, Mandala painting and more. The kinesthetic, aural, visual, intra- and interpersonal aspects of each class help keep kids involved and focused while having fun.

The course is for anyone who loves working with kids, and loves yoga.
It is for yoga teachers wanting to specialize, and educators wanting to bring the benefits of yoga to their classrooms. It's for anyone who works with children: child psychologists, pediatric physiotherapists, pediatric occupational therapists, nurses, speech therapists, nannies, and others have taken our training and loved it.
It's also a great for parents to find new ways to connect with their children, and share a healthy, fun, and
non-competitive movement-based activity with their families. It is for anyone who wants to expand a current related profession, or learn a new one!
You do not need to be a yoga teacher to take the course. Only registered yoga teachers, however, can receive continuing education credit through the US Yoga Alliance for our courses.
280 Hour Rainbow Family & Community Yoga Teacher Training
In a competitive world, where there are hundreds and sometimes thousands of yoga teachers in every city, we want to offer you the best start. We believe that to be a successful yoga teacher you need to have passion and knowledge, but also a specialization
. This residential training will certify you to teach all of the following: Yoga for Kids, Yoga for Teens, Fertility Yoga, Pre- and Postnatal Yoga, Baby Yoga, Family Yoga, Partner Yoga, and Community Yoga.
This training is a wonderful way to start your yoga career - if it’s your first yoga teacher training - or it can be a way to specialize - if you are already a yoga teacher. We will also attempt to open your mind and heart, and to empower you to become part of the constant evolution of yoga.
We are the present of yoga, but you are the future!
What to Bring to the 3-Day Training
- A yoga mat if you have one
- A pencil/pen to jot down notes in your manual, which you will receive during the course
- There will be short breaks throughout the course and then a longer meal break.
Usually, the groups go out to eat together, but feel free to bring your own food with you if
you prefer. There will be snacks for you to munch on in the studio as well
- A water bottle is a good idea
- Your sense of playfulness and fun!
We believe that ideally, everyone who really and deeply wants to do the training should be able to. Especially in our current economic climate, we believe yoga is more important than ever. And being able to share yoga with kids (and learn from them) is deeply rewarding.
