Little Guru 95 Hour Kids Yoga Teacher Training Information and Policies


Kids yoga was nothing like what I thought prior to taking the training. Jen and Jen are Ah-mazing teachers and you too will be an advocate all day, every day, for our young spirits who need tools to navigate this big world once you complete the training. Mindfulness, structure with chaos, calmness, and play all to bring children to a level of peace that they desperately need and will truly embrace.   ~ Angela G.

Taking the Little Guru Teacher Training opened so many doors to allow me to bring yoga to schools, new kids classes at my studio and to assist teachers in bringing mindfulness to their classrooms. We are creating a “Calm Room” at our local elementary school using just what I learned from Little Guru! I recommend this training to yoga teachers, school teachers and parents alike...anyone who works with or has children will benefit.  ~ Patti M.
At a time of unsettling rises in youth anxiety disorders, tech-overwhelm, bullying and accelerating suicide rates, the services of organizations like Little Guru Kids Yoga cannot be overstated.  The infamous "Jens" have created an educationally lively and loving space for children of all ages to play, learn and explore their highest potentials.  Their thoughtful blending of art and movement through the powerful traditions of yoga and mindfulness empower kids of all ages, and their work with public educators is changing the energy of our schools and communities in powerful ways.  ~ Candice D.

At Little Guru, we truly believe that every child is unique and has their own way of learning.  That is why our teaching philosophy is to speak to the different types of learners that we have in any given group. Whether it is math, art, reading, books, singing and music, playing games or teaching mindfulness, our classes teach to the full spectrum of learning styles.
Through training with us, you will learn many different ways to connect with
each child you teach, and give them the space for their little light to shine!
The word GURU means remover of darkness. We truly believe that is what children do; light up the world!
