Q & A:

Why are you offering all of your training modules back to back?
All of the training modules above are offered as part of our 95 Hour Registered Children's Yoga School (RCYS). 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 the 95 hours of training required to become a Registered Children's Yoga Teacher (RCYS) through Yoga Alliance.

Can I attend one or more modules of the summer intensive without completing all 95 hours of your Registered Children's Yoga School?

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.

What if I am interested in acquiring the Yoga Alliance's RCYT (Registered Children's Yoga Teacher) designation. How can I learn more?
Please visit our 95 hour Children's Yoga School page here for all details!

How do I get to Dover and where can I stay during my visit?
