The Teen KAY curriculum aims to give you the knowledge, tools and practical skills required to successfully teach yoga and meditation to teens and tweens.
What is Teen KAY?
Teen KAY is a specialty course designed for teens and tweens, focused on presence of mind and instilling confidence through the practice of yoga and mediation.
Included in this 6-hour Teen KAY course are topics from brain anatomy of teens to building communication skills through partner poses, and from guided meditations to using music effectively. Teen KAY also provides unique resources, such as a Sangha Agreement (a list of rules based on Patanjali’s Yamas and Niyamas), a guided meditation script, and the Golden Ticket (a unique lesson plan based on the Integral Yoga method). There are also dozens of games, activities and crafts created and curated specifically for Teen KAY.

Who is this course for?
Whether you use the lessons as a parent throughout the day with your own kids, as a classroom teacher providing meaningful “brain-breaks” for your students, or as a coach, therapist, yoga instructor, or counselor as part of your facility’s programming, Teen KAY has you covered.
How does Teen KAY work?
You will have access to the entire training and can complete it in any order you wish. Your progress and grade is tracked as you move through the training. You can return to any completed lecture at any time. The course will not lose your place. If you happen to leave the program during your training, fear not. Teen KAY will always know exactly where you left off. All links in the training will open up a new tab or window, so don’t be afraid to click. At the end you will be given your certificate to download, and you will be prepared with the knowledge to take your Teen Yoga classes to a whole new level.
