Immerse yourself in kids yoga and mindfulness education while cultivating new friendships, connecting with like-minded community and working toward completion of the ChildLight Yoga 95-hour Registered Children's Yoga School (RCYS) all in one trip to our beautiful studio and training center!

Visit the stunning seacoast of NH and attend one or more of our teacher trainings offered back-to-back during our Annual Summer Intensive! Enjoy quality trainings led by topic experts, local outdoor theatre and concerts, shopping and dining, yoga classes for you, nature hikes, a trip to the beach or mountains and all the rest that our historic tourist area has to offer summer visitors!

Each training is open for individual registration allowing the flexibility to attend just one day of training or stay for the entire program to learn from our experienced team. Summer intensive participants will receive a welcome bag full of surprise gifts from our local partners and enjoy plenty of dining and excursion ideas to make your visit extra special.  We realize this is an investment and will help you every step of the way.

Q & A:

Why are you offering all of your training modules back to back?
Many of the training modules above are offered as part of our 95 Hour Registered Children's Yoga School (RCYS), 85 Hour Registered Prenatal Yoga School or affiliate Yoga 4 Classrooms program. Each summer, we offer all modules back to back during the month of July as a convenience to those who wish to attend multiple modules in one visit or who are working to complete hours of training required to become a Registered Children's Yoga Teacher (RCYS) or Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher (RPYT) through Yoga Alliance.

Can I attend only one or more modules of the summer intensive?

Absolutely!  We are offering the summer intensive as a convenience to those who wish to complete multiple modules in one visit. However, anyone can attend any of the modules at any time, whether that be during the summer intensive or at another of our host locations nationwide. See specific training pages for all dates and locations.

I am interested in acquiring the Yoga Alliance's RCYT (Registered Children's Yoga Teacher)  or Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher designation. How can I learn more?
Please visit our 95 hour Children's Yoga School or Prenatal / Postnatal Yoga Training page for details! 

How do I get to Dover and where can I stay during my visit?
For travel and preferred lodging and accommodations suggestions, please visit our Coming to Dover page!

I have questions and would like support in making my plans.
Please contact our Director of Trainings, Sally Delisle.  She is happy to support you!
