We are thrilled to offer a new expanded, robust, and extensive online course which mirrors our weekend workshop. This is one of four online courses for you to earn your RCYT if you so desire.
Teaching teens is unlike instructing any other age group. They’re not kids and not yet adults. They still like to play but don’t want to be treated like children. They crave approval but will give you tons of attitude just to keep things interesting and establish their independence.
This course is designed to provide you with insightful, practical and time-tested tips, tools and techniques that help teens manage stress and develop physically, mentally, socially and emotionally. These methods support life long health and wellness and can be implemented immediately with adolescents as well as in your own life. The course is directed towards parents, healthcare professionals, yoga teachers, school teachers, parents and anyone working with young people. We invite students from all countries to join us. A prerequisite is that you have a regular yoga practice of your own.

What You Can Expect:
You can expect the course to take 20-25 hours depending on how deep you want to go. Each topic has a wealth of information with webinars, resources, interviews, videos, and best practices curated over 2 decades of teaching yoga to youth. Your access to the course will never expire. You can work at your own pace. You may want to binge and get it done quickly or take it slower, giving yourself time to integrate and apply the knowledge. There is a final written assignment which when completed you will receive a Certificate of Completion.
