Do you have questions about our teacher training courses?
We have gathered together all of the answers to your frequently asked questions. We hope you will find this useful in your quest for more information. Pleasecontact YogaBeez directly if your question isn’t answered here.
Do I need any previous experience in teaching children?
You do not need previous experience of teaching children to undertake our 4 day foundation course. All we ask is that you have practiced yoga for at least 2 years and have some experience of working with children. This might be as a parent, community group leader or as a teacher. If you have a passion for yoga and wish to share this with children you will be perfect for the course.
Do I need to be a qualified yoga teacher?
No. We find the people who make the best children’s yoga teachers are those who are passionate about their own yoga practice and love working with children. Some of our graduates are yoga teachers for adults, whilst other are parents or school teachers. Our courses provide you with the knowledge and practical learning to get you started in your teaching journey.
Is the course accredited?
Yes – all of our courses are accreditation by the Yoga Alliance International. This means your certificate is valid around the world.
Can I teach yoga in nursery and primary schools?
Yes – our teacher training courses cover child development from the age of 2 up to 18 years. Our foundation level course is specifically for ages 2-12, while our advanced level course focuses on ages 12-18. The content of each course offers a wealth of practical ways you can incorporate yoga into any setting to enhance learning and nurture the whole child.
Once I’m qualified, do I teach under the YogaBeez brand?
The beauty of our courses is the freedom to create your own yoga business. YogaBeez is an independent teacher training provider and as a graduate of one of our courses you will be qualified to share and teach yoga with children. You can create your own brand and style that is true to your voice as a yoga teacher.
Do you offer online kids yoga teacher training?
We are pleased to announce that over the past year we have managed to convert all our courses online too. This format has proved a great success! Along with live Zoom meet ups both trainings come with an extensive teaching platform, which has many wonderful extra resources for our online teachers. Between the weekends we also offer personal mentoring for your first taught yoga class. Myself Bryony, fellow trainers and guest teachers endeavour to offer you as magical an experience as if we were in a studio space together.
