Q: Do I need to have a 200 hr yoga teacher certification to teach kids?

A: No, you can teach kids yoga after taking our training, although it helps to have some prior experience of yoga. For mom and baby yoga it is preferable to have a 200 hr yoga alliance approved teacher designation, or another professional designation to work with moms and babies (such as doula, midwife, nurse, massage therapist, osteopath etc).

Q: What should I bring?

A: We provide a training manual, and any props you might need for the training. It is advised to bring a pad of paper and a pen to take notes.  There is a nice cafe nearby for lunch, but some people choose to bring a packed lunch with them.

Q: Are you close to a metro?

A: Yes, we are about a 7 mins walk, west on Notre Dame, from Place St Henri metro.

Q: Is the training approved by Yoga Alliance?

A: As an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) any training offered by Kate Hudson qualifies for Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Credits.

Q: What kind of employment opportunities will I have after completing this training?

A: Many schools, daycares and community organizations have budgets for Kids Yoga Programs, and there are many opportunities to teach kids yoga in the public sector. Some participants also start their own classes in yoga studios, after school programs and community centres.

Q: What is the home practicum?

A: In order to encourage students to take the leap directly into teaching (which is of course the best way to learn) we ask that as part of the certification process each student teaches (either alone or with another student) a number of kids yoga classes and reports back on them. On completion of both the training and the practicum we award the certificate of completion.

Q: Can kids really do yoga? Isn't it a bit chaotic and crazy? How do we keep them still?

A: Kids are natural yogis. They live in the moment, and are able to express what is going in with them in each moment. A kids yoga class is less formal than an adults class, with more noise and laughter!  However, kids are encouraged to learn how to transition from silly to still and how to calm and quiet the body and mind at intervals throughout the class. They learn how to find focus and inner peace, whether they are in a more active noisy place, or a still quiet one.
