REGISTERED CHILDREN'S YOGA TEACHER (RCYT) 95 HOUR *YOGA ALLIANCE* TRAINING

"Because our youth deserve dedicated, knowledgeable yoga instructors that know how to manage and support their ever changing bodies, minds, and world.  The RCYT 95 Hour Teacher Training will provide you the comprehensive knowledge to care, create and support our youth in a variety of settings for maximum success." - Jessica Kos Birney

This in-depth training is for people who know that they want to be a fully certified
Children’s Yoga Teacher by a nationally recognized organization, Yoga Alliance.  
Yoga Alliance is the only nationally recognized certifying body for yoga schools and teachers
in the United States.  In 2015 YA outlined new requirements for RCYS
(Registered Children’s Yoga Schools) and RCYTs (Registered Children’s Yoga Teachers)
and is no longer recognizing “grandfathered” training and teaching hours.  


These requirements then gave rise to the new, stronger, and more comprehensive teacher trainings that are working to elevate the teaching practices and execution of the children’s yoga industry. 

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

And yet, after taking a weekend intensive and having taught children’s yoga class, I know that I’m excited, interested, and eager to learn so much more.  I want to be a RCYT!

RCYT PROGRAM
