For Parents, Caregivers, Teachers, Yoga Teachers and Yoga Students!

Play and learning is central to this training. With the use of games, songs, storytelling and an interactive learning environment participants will gain practical strategies specific to teaching yoga to young children. In this children’s yoga training Laura marries play and learning together, while supporting participants with practical developmentally appropriate teaching techniques.

Calm Kids Yoga® Training was created by Laura Fowler Massie to help share the power and magic of children’s yoga with educators, yoga teachers and parents. Laura is an experienced Early Childhood Educator (ECE) with a BA in Psychology and a M.Ed in adult education. She is also a 500hr RYT Hatha Yoga Teacher with specialized training in children’s yoga, restorative yoga and infant massage. With more than 30 years in the yoga and early education sectors, she brings a wealth of knowledge to this children’s yoga training. Laura is a college professor specializing in child development and play-based learning theory.


By incorporating yoga into children’s lives we help to cultivate an environment in which they may feel happier, calmer and more confident. Through the practice of yoga children learn life skills that support self-regulation, body awareness, concentration and relaxation.


Topics covered include:

  • Yoga philosophy and benefits for children

  • Yoga & Mindfulness as a teaching tool

  • Ages & Stages: child development and yoga

  • Playing with yoga through games, music and movement

  • Storytelling and simple meditations 

Our weekend will be a combination of lecture, personal practice, written reflection and practice teaching. There is a written reflection final assignment due 2 weeks after course completion.

“Thank you for guiding, teaching, motivating and inspiring me through this wonderful journey of yoga with children. My heart is full when I teach and guide children through yoga in their daily lives as I know the incredible benefits added to my life when I embraced yoga. You are an amazing gift and inspiration to so many individuals. The individuals you have touched with your yoga is endless like waves in the ocean. I hope that you are told often how you have impacted lives.” ~ Darlene

“I had my first yoga class today and it went really well! The kids were attentive and focused, with lots of smiles and laughter. Lots of children commented to me after class that they really enjoyed their yoga class, which I thought was amazing since they are only three and four year olds! I attribute how well everything went today in my yoga class to how wonderful a teacher you are!
Thanks again!
Keep up your inspiring work!”


“I found this course to be comprehensive, interesting, and absolutely relevant to my work with children and families. With today’s busy, stressful and chaotic world, it is so important for children to have the time to look inward, move slowly and deliberately and reconnect with themselves. This course gives practitioners the skills and resources to help children do so.” ~ Lauren

For 200 hour certified Yoga Teachers this course provides CEUs with Yoga Alliance. This course is also part of our Yoga Alliance 300 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training.
