250 Hour Training for School Teachers & Youth Educators

AYA is delighted to offer this very special yoga teacher training programme – possibly the first of its kind in Australia! This is an innovative training opportunity for anyone who works regularly with children and teens, specifically targeted at improving the overall wellbeing of our youth, from Kindergarten to Year 12 (approximately from 4 to 18 years of age).

This training programme is delivered in two different pathways, depending on yoga teacher training studies that you may have already completed. In order to be accredited to teach yoga to youths you must also complete (or have completed), an accredited, foundation-level, yoga teacher training programme that enables you to teach adults. Therefore:

1. If you have already completed a minimum 200 hours, Yoga Teacher Training course, that is internationally accredited with Yoga Alliance, and you want to be able to teach youths, you need only to complete AYA’s Youth Yoga Teaching Certificate (50 hours).

The 50 hour, Youth Yoga Teaching Certificate will be offered concurrently through face-to-face and via Livestream on Zoom. You will complete 6 x Sundays from Feb-July 2022, 9:30am-5:45pm.


2. If you have not yet completed an accredited Yoga Teacher Training programme, you need to complete AYA’s Diploma of Yoga Teacher Training for School Teachers & Youth Educators (250 hours). This Diploma also accredits you to teach adults.

The 250 hour Yoga Teacher Training for School Teachers & Youth Educators, will include the 50 hour Youth Yoga Teaching Certificate + 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training.

Tues 15 Feb – 7 June 2022, 6pm-9:30pm, plus

4 x weekends – 19/20 Feb, 26/27 Mar, 9/10 April, 21/22 May 2022, 9:30am-5:45pm each day.

These programmes are accredited by Yoga Alliance (Worldwide) and will enable you to register as a recognised Children’s Yoga Teacher.

The prospectus for this course is currently being finalised, and we look forward to bringing your more information regarding the lecturing team very soon. In the meantime, please contact our Director of Education, Melanie Mackintosh for more information and to express an interest in a place.
