About This Event

If you love kids and love Yoga, join us for a Nitya Living™ Kid’s Yoga teacher training to combine your passions and share the healing practices of Yoga with the youngest generation.

Nitya Griffith has developed a unique approach to teaching children that incorporates storytelling and songs to engage their bodies, minds, and imaginations. Now offered nationwide, this program provides the opportunity to make an impact in the lives of children by becoming a Nitya Living teacher.

Together we can create a culture of peace, one child at a time.

The Nitya Living training includes:

An approach to teaching children ages 2–9

A deep understanding of anatomy and the body of a child

Mindfulness practices for teens

Ways to approach special needs populations, private classes, and more

Nitya’s original scripts, a copy of Nitya’s DVD, and access to her exclusive library of original songs

A copy of each of Nitya’s books, A Child’s Journey into Yoga, The Yoga with Nitya Cookbook, and Musings from Mat: Inspirations and Poetry

A franchising opportunity for launching a Nitya Living™ Kid’s Yoga Summer Camp in your area

You will find the Nitya Living™ Kid’s Yoga Training to be engaging, authentic, inspiring, and very generous in sharing the talents that Nitya has honed for the past 12 years.

Training Information


A willingness to sing, a love for children, the ability to participate in storytelling, a healthy lifestyle, and a knowledge of Yoga are all important skills for this training.

Experience with Hatha Yoga is necessary.

A 200-hour Yoga certification is not required; however, it is needed to teach an older population of adolescents, such as middle or high school students.

Continuing Education (CE) Opportunities

Yoga Alliance (YA):  Approximately 30 contact hours and 20 non-contact hours (observing classes, watching video/ listening to audio to memorize songs and scripts, and writing an essay.)

You can input your contact hours using your YA log in information.

Integral Yoga Teachers Association (IYTA) can provide you a CE certificate with your program’s total contact hours for a $10 fee (free for IYTA members.) For more information, email (contact info blocked).

CE hours can count toward your ongoing certification with Yoga Alliance.

You have humbled me beyond words. I truly can’t thank you enough for everything: for constantly reminding me what I am capable of, for the teacher training, and for the endless possibilities that continue to lie ahead. I am so grateful I get to continue this journey with you! — Becky E.

Hi! I can’t stop smiling whenever I see my certificate! I am very eager to start teaching classes. — Scout R.
