“I wanted to let you know how happy I am with the Zooga yoga training! It exceeded my expectations. The training was comprehensive, fun and engaging. Megan is a gem of a teacher & a trainer. The almost 100 page manual is impressive! It’s an invaluable resource! I am impressed that traditional yoga philosophy was woven throughout the the training. All the while peppering in fun & games for kids. To my surprise it reinforced my 200 hr TT. I am so happy I invested in the Zooga Yoga training! I’m excited to see the yoga adventures that follow.”

“Zooga Yoga Kids’ Teacher Training provided an in-depth understanding of just what it takes to teach a child’s yoga class. Reviewing poses, child psychology, lesson plans and creative ways to interact with your classes. Each of our sessions were taught by certified instructors with real-life experience and we even had a session with a licensed clinical psychologist. While I’m still a little nervous about teaching the little ones (just because they’re little and I haven’t done it before), I do feel confident in my techniques and the training I received from Zooga Yoga Kids Teacher Training.”
– Lauren Nicole Keys, Level 1 graduate of Zooga Yoga Kids Teacher Training

– Janet Song, Level 1 graduate of Zooga Yoga Teacher Training
“Coming from a left-brained career and not teaching children, I feel as if Zooga opened my eyes to a whole other side of me that can only benefit me more as a parent and future kids yoga teacher. It has reminded me to share my youthful vibrant energy more with adults and not just children.”
