This Yoga Teacher Training is hosted by Kate Hudson of Mishkaa Minis Yoga for Kids (formerly Little Lotus Yoga for Kids), a local company who have been offering this training in Montreal for 13+ years.

Kids yoga classes are inspirational, educational and unique every time. Children can teach us how to live as true yogis, in the moment, in the full expression of who we are. Teaching yoga to kids is extremely rewarding when we allow them to teach us the important lessons that many of us have forgotten as adults.
For younger children the focus is on bringing them into their bodies, minds and imagination in an explorative way, holding a space of compassion and kindness, and helping kids to grow into the unique and amazing individuals that they are.

In this training program we bring you the expertise and knowledge that you need to be able to provide this healing and learning space and to go on this incredible journey of yoga with children. Whether you are an experienced yogi who would like to work with kids, or an experienced teacher or educator interested in learning more about yoga, this program will be valuable to you both personally and professionally.
