Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL TRAINING DETAILS

 

Yes! The Training is intensive but also super fun! You do not need to be super flexible or a yogi to participate. During the training there is a lot of hands on and learning done through experience. If you feel you would be more comfortable after attending a few yoga classes prior, please go ahead. But, this is not a requirement. The training also has a large component of theory and learning from the trainer. You will gain a lot of knowledge and skills to apply in your work with children.

 The course is for anyone who loves working with kids or loves yoga. It is for yoga teachers wanting to specialise, and educators wanting to bring the benefits of yoga to their classrooms. It’s for anyone who works with children: Child psychologists, paediatric physiotherapists, paediatric occupational therapists, nurses, speech therapists, nannies and many other therapists and occupations have taken our Training and loved it. It’s also a great for parents to find new ways to connect with their children, and share a healthy, fun, and non-competitive movement-based activity with their families. It is for anyone who wants to expand a current related profession, or learn a new one! All you need is a love for being with children and having fun!

  • Yoga mat
  • Notebook and pens
  • Water bottle
  • Snacks and lunch
  • Laughter and readiness for FUN!

 

 

Our trainings are meant to give you the tools to share yoga with children of all ages in a variety of environments such as schools, kindergartens, daycare centres, gyms, yoga studios, private classes, online and more. We want you to share yoga with as many children as you can!

Those trainings ARE NOT for you to create your own children yoga teacher training or use to train adults how to teach yoga to children. Those materials are copyrighted to Rainbow Yoga and a breach of this may result in legal action.

 

 

We do sometime have kids present and mostly it works well if they are 6 years old or more. The training is very intense. It is 9 hours a day of moving between playing yoga and listening to practical lectures about teaching techniques. While your child might be able to join in a lot of the activities, it will depend on their patience and temperament during the lecture components.

We suggest that it would be great if you have a friend or relative that can take care of your child/ children for a portion of the training. Otherwise, please bring different activities to keep your child/ children busy and entertained. Full attendance remains essential and mandatory to meet the course qualification, so please ensure this is not compromised.

9 hours (Even if it is 9 hours of fun) is a long day for a child, the Training is also 3 days in a row. As long as you are prepared to give your child the attention they need, it can often work to both keep your child happy and keep the training moving smoothly. The training is amazing, and I’m sure you will have loads of fun sharing it together!

 

 

We have had many students join the Training in all stages of pregnancy, however please consult your doctor before confirming.

Naturally we are completely unfamiliar with your medical history and your pregnancy so we can’t tell you if you should or should not take the course. Please consult your doctor before making a decision about attending the Training during pregnancy.

The course can be very intense, there is a lot of running and jumping involved. However, that being said, you can always modify moves or sit parts out if you need to. You’ll still learn everything, it will just be less exertion. There are videos on our website that will give you an excellent idea of what the course is like, you should show them to your doctor so they also can give you the most informed opinion about taking the Training during pregnancy.

 

 

We recommend AirB&B, Booking.com, Expedia.com or Hotels.com to search for accommodation options to suit your needs in the Training location. You can use the training location or studio address to refine your search for the closest options.

  CERTIFICATIONS FROM THE TRAINING

 

You will gain all the skills you need to be certified and ready to teach children of all ages upon completion of the Rainbow Kids Yoga 3-Day Teacher Training along with any of our other training options.

We have trained over 12,000 Kids Yoga Teachers in our 3-Day Teacher Training, who use our Certificate to gain insurance and teach at schools, kindergartens, yoga studios, gyms, resorts, private classes and much more.

There is no need for you to be a certified yoga teacher, or to be registered with a yoga association in order to teach. Our training requires no other pre-acquired skill besides having a love of children.

 

 

The 3-Day Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training is jam packed with tools, techniques and ideas for running amazing yoga classes. In this short time we cover a huge amount of information, and every part is really important. We really believe there is value in attending the entire training!

Full participation in the training is mandatory. Please make appropriate family, work and travel arrangements to make sure that your participation in the training is not compromised.

Students who miss more than 1 hour of the total contact hours will not be certified. Arriving late and leaving early from the Teacher Training contributes to non-attendance and must be recorded by the Senior Trainer. This time is subtracted from the total contact hours and counts against the minimum required attendance.

Students may request to do a make-up session at another 3 Day Teacher Training or location. The make-up session will be considered on a case by case basis and is subject to availability. This will be approved by our Registrations Team.

 

 

Unfortunately, no. These two different modes of training vary slightly in the course content and delivery.

 

 

Yes, you can take take out public liability insurance. There are plenty of options for insurance and seeking local advice from fellow yoga teachers is a great way to come across these. Here are insurance companies that we, and many of our graduates, use:

 

 

In Australia: www.insurancehouse.com.auh

In Europe: BGi.uk.com

 

 

The Yoga Alliance you are registered with most likely has an hour requirement for you to qualify for the RCYT.

For this reason we have brought you our 95-hour training. Once this is completed, this is recognised as Yoga Alliance certified and you may then submit this certificate to qualify for the RYCT.

 

 

After completing the 3-day Rainbow Kids Yoga Training you are now able to teach right away!

If you are interested in the RCYT certification you need to be an existing Registered Yoga Teacher.

If you are a Registered Yoga Teacher you need to continue onto our 95-hour training to qualify for the RCYT.

If you are registered with Yoga Alliance Canada or Yoga Australia you can complete additional requirements to qualify for the RCYT without completing the 95-hour training.
