Little Spaces and Big Breaths: Making Room for Kids Yoga

A few years ago, I took a kids yoga teacher training at Semperviva Yoga Studio in Vancouver, B.C. I was only able to complete the first module of the training. I had hoped to return to complete the training, however, this studio and training program has now closed permanently due to the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Why I am doing this:

I love practicing yoga – in my life, with my kids, and for my work. I feel that I have a lot of skills yet to learn and practice when it comes to kids yoga!

Now is the perfect time to study, learn, grow and then put my new skills into action!

What are my plans to get started:

  1. Review the materials I already have. This includes a kids yoga teacher training manual, several books, and checking through my emails to see which websites I am subscribed to.
  2. Review online resources – preferably free or affordable. Any training program that I consider taking would need to be shorter in length, or learn-at-your-own-pace (due to time constraints of the course).
  3. Check in with other kids yoga teachers who are familiar to me – do they have websites? Would any of them (perhaps the ones I am already friends with) be willing to send me some of their favourite online resources


-To create my own digital resource folder of kids yoga activities.

-Practice new yoga activities with my kids and friends at home

-Record Practice Teaching Videos to share with EDTC 300 classmates

-Create a Kids Yoga Channel on YouTube

Bonus Work:

I am currently in the process of renovating my basement. I think it will make a great space for shooting some sweet little yoga videos! If all goes well, I will try doing some recordings there for this assignment. The timing of this course could not be more perfect!!

…Now if only I had the time to take on video editing!

  1. Dani, I think it is great that you are expanding you knowledge on something you love! When deciding what I was going to do for this project I hadn’t even thought of yoga so way to be creative. I’m excited to see where this journey takes you!


  2. Hi Dani! I LOVE how organized your plans are for this project! You really seem to have a good idea of what you want to do. My auntie actually teaches kids yoga (or at least she did pre-pandemic), her Facebook profile is called “Glow Yoga Kids” and they post videos and other resources on that page, if you were ever interested in checking that out! Really looking forward to following along with your journey this semester!

  3. I want to say that I love how clean and organized this blog post is! It is so easy to follow and I love that you have not only listed your plans but given us your very tangible and measurable goals! I have done a little bit of yoga in the past but never incorporated my kids into it and I think that this would be a great opportunity to get my kids involved while spending time with them! Plus this can give us some great movement break ideas for the classroom!
