NEW: Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® is an official Registered Children's Yoga School with Yoga Alliance. The trainings you take with us (including past trainings) can be applied toward the 95 hour Registered Children's Yoga Teacher (RCYT) credential. We have created 4 training modules that can be taken in any order but one at a time that together equal the 95 hours for RCYT status. Please note you must be working toward or already are a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) to receive the official RCYT status.
