After too much time online, we are beyond happy to offer our Level 1 Children's Yoga Teacher Trainings in-studios in North Vancouver, Port Moody, Kelowna, and Toronto with little ones actually joining parts of our classes! This gives you a real experience working with children, so you can be an even more inspiring teacher!
We explore tools for you to incorporate into your classes, and help nurture children from all backgrounds and experiences on and off the mat. We believe in order to support the child, we need to support the world of the child. Empowering educators and parents is a very important part of this work, as we can influence their nervous system baseline and how they perceive + interact with the world around them...for life! An important aspect of our training is looking at our patterns + beliefs, so we can show up as our best selves to lead by example. Together we bring you an empowering, inclusive, age appropriate approach to fostering healthy life skills in Kids Yoga classes, to include:
Level 1 is In-Studio with children joining us for class experiences! Level 2 + 3 are Live, Online. You can take just Level 1, or all 3 Levels to apply with Yoga Alliance to become a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT). Please see FAQ for more.
We believe we learn + grow together, and when we can take this approach with the youth, amazing growth occurs! These children know why they are here, we are simply helping them to stay connected with their intuitive wisdom.
Katie (Expert Registered Yoga Teacher - ERYT, Registered Children's Yoga Teacher - RCYT, Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider - YACEP), has coached children for over 20 years, has been teaching yoga to children and adults since 2012. She also holds her Bachelors in Business, Certificate in Adult Learning, and is exctited to be taking her Masters in Counselling soon! She is a mama of two young girls, and offers Craniosacral + Somato-emotional Release Therapy for infants to adults. Her unique understanding of the emotions, the body, and the nervous system helps her empower her students. She learned meditation, breath-work and the power of Somatoemotional Release (not calling it that!) as a child, which has inspired her life work!
Dawn, is a Registered Social Worker with experience teaching at the post-secondary level. She became a yoga instructor in early 2019 to combine her SW skills with mind-body-emotion tools to support children in their mental health. Dawn believes it is our vulnerability that connects us as humans, making her classes suitable for all levels, including anyone who has never done yoga before. Dawn’s classes are grounded in the principle of ahimsa (non violence) towards ourselves, and towards our outside world. In 2020, Dawn followed her passion further and started RVN Wellness, a yoga + counselling studio in Port Moody, BC.
"Children are natural yogis! I'm humbled to walk beside them as they discover the world around them and their inner selves. I also get to do some of my favourite things when I work with kids - crafts, reading, and exploring!"

“Incredible kids yoga teacher training. Very interactive, engaging, and informative. It can be tough to take trainings online but Katie made it easy! Thank you for this amazing opportunity to join you in your kids yoga teacher training!”
Having the freedom to explore my own inner child and tap into the purity of mind that exists at a young age was such a privilege. Learning with Katie is always an opportunity for inquiry, introspection, and play!
