Explore our comprehensive teacher certification program, and learn to support and grow the inner resources of children 3-18.
Level One (Teaching Yoga and Mindfulness to Children), is offered in two different formats. You choose the one that works for you! One is supported and guided online with our faculty and staff. The other format is on-demand and completely self paced.
Both were created in collaboration with Yoga International and can be taken as a stand alone workshop, or combined with our other courses for certification.
Certification includes our Core Curriculum consisting of Level 1, Level 2, Level 3; Three Online Courses (6 content hours each) addressing trauma, chair yoga, and neurodiversity; Two Integration + Implementation offerings that include practicums (practice teaching clinics) and a mentorship program matching you with a teacher for personalized feedback.
We offer a variety of ways to register and pay for programming. Sign up for courses one at a time, register for our bundled certification program and save over $500, or sign up for one of our flexible payment plans.
Our Level One Course is offered in two ways for you to choose from. One is online, supported, and guided by our faculty and staff. The other option is completely self-paced, and you can start whenever you are ready.
Level Two and Three are offered multiple times a year and are provided in a similar way to our online, guided and supported Level One course.
We also offer an annual week-long training in person at the Omega Institute, which includes L1-L3 courses.
We all need ongoing coaching and support to integrate our learning, continuing growing as educators, and to chat with likeminded folks about the many challenging (and funny) scenarios that arise during teaching. The LFY Coaching and Community Group, open to our training graduates at any level, is designed to offer you tangible resources to support your career, on-going coaching, and a built in group of colleagues.
