95-HOUR online kids yoga teacher training FAQ
Will it be recorded?
Yes! You can catch the replays. These will be ready within 48 hours of taping and will be unlisted links on youtube. Please enjoy but do not share. These will be available forever! You will have a link to a spreadsheet with all your links to re watch at any time.
What if I can't make it to all the live tapings?
That's OK, try to make it to MOST of the live-online classes and confirm that you have watched the replays you missed.
What do I need?
A computer or other internet-connected device with a microphone and camera. Some classes you will want a yoga mat. Water or a drink. Option to have snacks. We will use zoom, you can download the app or stream from the website. Many people print the resources, so you would benefit from access to color printing.
Will there be breaks?
Yes, we will take 5-7 minutes breaks throughout. On longer tapings, we have longer breaks.
My family is around, can they be in the room?
As long as you mute the mic so the noise isn't distracting, we will make it work!
Will this count for Yoga Alliance Contact Hours?
Yes, you will get contact hours for YACEP or toward your RCYT.
Will I get a certificate?
If you are working toward your 95-hour RCYT, you get that once you complete all the courses. We will track your progress together. If you are not pursuing RCYT, you can have a certificate of completion.

Do I need my 200-hour RYT through Yoga Alliance to pursue my 95 RCYT?
NO! You will be certified upon completion. Only if you wish to register with YA, read on for details.
In order to register as an RCYT (Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance, a teacher must also complete a 200-hour training with an RYS 200. However, it does not need to be done first. A teacher can complete the trainings in any order. You do not need to register with the Yoga Alliance, it is a governing body only. To be a certified children’s yoga teacher, you need to complete all course hours. In order to register with the Yoga Alliance, you must also be a 200-hour RYT or above. You can pursue that before or after your RCYT training is complete.
What is the 95-hour RCYT?
This is a course that involves 95 hours of training. It is a certificate that is registered through the Yoga Alliance.
Don't I need contact hours?
Contact means in-person with a lead trainer, but right now during the COVID19 pandemic, contact hours are awarded for online training per Yoga Alliance. That rule currently extends through the end of 2021.
Do I need to get my RCYT to teach?
No, you do not need to have your 95-hour Registered Children's Yoga Teacher designation through Yoga Alliance to become a kids yoga teacher. You are able to teach once you feel ready. Though registration through Yoga Alliance is rarely a requirement to teach children's yoga in most settings, it can boost your confidence and enrich your resume. It is not essential for all people. If you are thinking of a kids yoga career track, consider completing your 95-RCYT.
Can I teach kids yoga and mindfulness after I take this course?
What if I need more help once I am done with this course?
We offer online as well as private mentorship to our graduates. I will work with payment plans through these trying economic times. If you need help with building a business or learning the ropes of working online, I can support you privately.
The courses are listed. If you cannot make any of the times, all will be recorded. You must attest once you have viewed any missed courses. Your practice teach assignments are sent as video links to Lara and she will provide feedback to help you grow.
