How does it work? When you register you'll be given access to a *secret* OM Schooled website where we'll all hang out for 6 weeks (it's easy to use, comprehensive and fun!)
Each week utilizes readings, audio/video components, hOMework, and Skype or phone sessions to guide you through all components of kids yoga. This course is rigorous AND joyful.

Teen Yoga Teacher Training
Learn to teach comprehensive, intuitive and powerful classes to teenagers.
This training focuses on asana/poses, breath work, meditation and complimentary activities (such as nutrition and the arts) to empower teen students ages 13-18 to be their best selves. We'll examine the different developmental stages for this group, looking at changes in body/mind/spirit, identity and social shifts.
You will learn not only the building blocks of a successful teen class, but tools for putting them together in successful lessons and curriculum.
The teen years are full of change, exploration and introspection naturally....it's powerful to arm kids with yogic tools to help them be peaceful warriors at this time of life and beyond!
