LEVEL 2 builds on key competencies introduced in LEVEL 1 to develop your skills to make you a truly competent, outstanding Kids Yoga Teacher.
The combination of the LEVEL 1 TEACHER TRAINING and this LEVEL 2 TEACHER TRAINING makes a 50hr qualification that has been Accredited by YOGA ALLIANCE AUSTRALIA/INTERNATIONAL
Can I attend YOGAKIDS's LEVEL 2 Teacher Training if I have completed a different
Kids Yoga Teacher Training (i.e. not with YOGAKIDS Training Academy).
No, sorry. Our Training has gone through a rigorous accreditation process with Yoga Alliance Australia/International. It consists of our Level 1 & Level 2 trainings as two components of one whole Training that has been authorised by them.
Is there a maximum time limit between doing Level 1 and Level 2?
Try to complete both courses within 2-3 months if possible. You need your 50 hour qualification to register with Yoga Alliance Australia - International.
Can I enrol in Level 2 as a follow-on course when I enrol in Level 1?
Absolutely, this is the usual way to enrol, and ensures your place in the upcoming LEVEL 2 Training. Please make sure you complete a Level 1 Training before attending Level 2.
You must have either completed a Level 1 Teacher Training
or be enrolled in one to have your enrolment in Level 2 accepted.
Is there any work required for Level 2?
Yes, please make sure you have taught at least 2 informal Practice Classes and
completed your Mindfulness Challenge. These contribute towards your 50 hours.
Can I teach before completing Level 2?
Yes. We encourage first teaching in a low pressure informal setting and then gaining your Level 2 certificate so you can have the minimal 50 hour qualification that is recognised by Yoga Alliance® (International/Australia) That also helps with getting insurance.
