Sarah works directly with students to train them one-on-one online, via combination of recorded videos, Skype/Google Hangout sessions, readings, homework and home practice. You will receive a full curriculum map of our time together, plus will have space to explore the specific questions you have as we help you find and develop your own kids yoga teacher voice.
Students work closely with Sarah and with their online classmates to learn all the tools and tips for becoming a great kids yoga teacher. Projects include lesson planning and curriculum development, learning and trying kids pranayama and new ways to work with poses, learning a library of classroom management techniques, field work in your own city or town (when possible) and more.
One benefit of learning online is working at your own pace (while still getting a lot of one-on-one time with the teacher and having a community around the world).
Another benefit is having the materials at your fingertips forever. (see below for our inspiring list of where folks have studied from!)

Become certified from hOMe in an intensive yet fun 6 week course. We’re super excited to offer this!
How does it work? When you register you'll begin receiving emails, lesson plans, readings and home practice routines to start learning in your home. We will connect weekly via Skype and/or phone to digest all we are learning.
Each week utilizes readings, audio/video components, hOMework, and Skype or phone sessions to guide you through all components of kids yoga. We also require all participants to observe a kids class in their area (if not possible we will work out a solution), and more.
This course is rigorous AND joyful. With your kids yoga certification you’ll be able to teach in schools, studios, and private yoga classes with leadership, empathy, knowledge, wisdom, and fun.
You should plan to devote 3 hours per week on the material, but whenever is convenient.
Plus, the online material will be forever at your fingertips.
