After many years of working in the field and running a successful yoga & aerial yoga studio for families , owners Abby Nagler and An Dang created a teacher training program based on their extensive knowledge of teaching yoga to babies through pre-teens. Their approach to these training offerings has been to collaborate with other experts in the fields of behavioral development, developmental anatomy, and occupational therapy to provide trainees with a well rounded approach to working with kids through yoga.

What should I expect?
TLYH Kids Teacher Training is an intensive. This means that we spend a lot of time together doing both movement and lecture in a short amount of time. We will be sitting on the ground during the lecture portions of the training so please make sure to bring any additional items you may need to make it as comfortable as possible. There will be a lot of movement and partnering, however we never force anyone to participate in anything that makes them uncomfortable. However, we do encourage that you give it a try!
What should I bring?
Please bring a mat, water bottle (we have a water fountain to refill bottles), a pen and light snacks. We will have a few snacking options here as well. You will be given a manual that covers everything we will learn in the training so you are welcome to leave additional notebooks/journals at home.
