INDEPENDENT TRAINING MODULES

SPECIALIZE YOUR TEACHING (23hrs EACH)

A LA CARTE MODULES

"I've done the Foundations, but am looking for more - what can I do?"

You don't need to do the full RCYT track to take these trainings!   If you're looking to specialize your youth yoga offerings, are interested in a specific population or are just intrigued by one of our modules, this is the place for you.

Right now, you CAN work as a children’s yoga teacher with a weekend intensive training.
