About us

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.

Experience with Hatha Yoga is necessary.

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.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
