About the training

The 20-hour Budding Yogis Certification is based on our unique philosophy of teaching yoga and mindfulness to kids in a way that stretches their imaginations, offers them non-competitive opportunities to play, and teaches them how to relax. What makes Budding Yogis special is our emphasis on mindfulness and the ways in which it can be incorporated into children's yoga and their everyday lives.

For more than 12 years, Linda Feldman has been training hundreds of teachers through our 20-hour Budding Yogis Certification. Participants learn how to teach yoga classes for kids ages 2-12 with age-appropriate yoga poses and activities, how to create theme-based yoga classes, and how to use self-calming, meditation, and mindfulness techniques to help kids relax their bodies and minds.

At the end of the 20 hours, trainees will have the opportunity to practice teach a group of children and be prepared to start their teaching journey. Each trainee will receive A Budding Yogis certificate if all sessions are attenend and the practice teaching is completed.
