Yoga Classroom + Hands on Learning
The YoKid Mentor & Apprentice program offers practical real classroom experience to those interested in successfully cultivating the gift of teaching yoga to children. A combination of observation, co-teaching, and independent teaching progressively prepares you to successfully teach school-aged children.To fulfill the required hours, you will need to complete each of the following three components:
- Observation of 6 YoKid classes (observation can either be on-site at classes taught by YoKid OR through video of YoKid classes OR with an approved children’s yoga teacher).
- Co-teach/assist a total of 6 classes with a YoKid (co-teaching/assisting can either be on-site at classes taught by YoKid OR with an approved children’s yoga teacher).
- Coordinate and teach 3 classes for school-aged children (this can include, but is not limited to, teaching a YoKid program in your immediate community; all classes will need to be recorded and submitted for review by YoKid faculty).
Additionally, all those enrolling in the Mentor & Apprentice program must submit a YoKid Teacher Application as well as a background check form prior to beginning your observation. The application and background check form can be found here.
