Careers in Kids Yoga

What kind of work are you doing on kids yoga?

Currently, I teach 4 classes a week at my daughter’s pre-school. There is a toddler yoga class, 3’s class, 4’s class, and Transitional Kindergarten. I also teach private yoga events such as yoga for girl scout troops or birthday parties for kids.

How has your career benefited from doing the training?

I had my first job at a preschool within weeks of Lara’s training. I was fortunate enough to teach at the Boys and Girls Club for their summer camp and after school program, a wonderful bilingual preschool that let me practice my Spanish and various other daycares and preschools including my child’s. Through the Flow and Grow Community, I found that there are many opportunities for classes and connections.

What is something amazing you’ve experienced while teaching kids yoga?

Teaching kids yoga has made me realize that yoga can be playful and experienced in so many ways. It has taught me to go with the flow and to have the confidence to tailor any class to the needs and vibe of my classroom each day. Sometimes what happens in kids yoga classes, especially toddler yoga classes, might not look like yoga but the children are learning and using these tools. Every time I chat with parents my heart is full of the stories they tell me about their children showing them a breath we did in class or a series we did on bears and hibernation.

What would you say to someone considering taking the course?

Go for it! Whether you take what you learn and just do it at home with your own kids or incorporate the lessons into your classroom, community center or local preschool your life and the lives of those around you will benefit greatly. Bringing awareness and teaching yoga and mindfulness is such an incredible gift to give to our children. As a busy mom of 2, I find teaching kids yoga a great compliment to managing a yoga department at a wellness center and teaching my regular adult classes. As my children are young I am often able to bring them to work and even trade for preschool education. The morning hours are perfect and allow me time to put my oldest on the bus and drop my youngest off in her class before I teach. As they get older I can always pick up more classes as time allows.
