A coaching course in class management for kids yoga teachers.

My tools and insights for making the interpersonal side of teaching kids yoga easy, fun and satisfying!

This training equips you with a wide range of techniques you can use immediately to ensure a stable atmosphere in your class. Then it goes a little deeper: exploring how you can build your awareness of what’s happening in the class – and also for you – when things get challenging, and what you can do to bring things back.

The goal of the course is to make leading classes easier and more fun, and to help you avoid behavioural problems before they happen ideally, and giving you tools to resolve them if they do.

Here’s how the course breaks down:

Firstly, I share the simple but powerful techniques I use in every class to solve the most common class management challenges.

  • The Class Blueprint I prepare before each class
  • How I get the kids from the door and onto the mat ready to do yoga
  • The Golden Rules I agree with every group which govern how we behave.
  • The Basic Behaviour Hacks I use whenever one of a very wide range of common things happen: including what to do when a child decides they don’t want to take part, or when someone wants to go to the bathroom, orwants the attention to be on them instead of you and the yoga, or tells you they’re bored, or doesn’t want to settle down into relaxation.
  • The Three Hats – how to adapt your style depending on what’s going on in the class,
  • How to Be More Interesting than whatever is distracting the kids!


Then we go a little deeper, exploring how we can foster excellent interactions with the kids. As kids yoga teachers, we need heightened awareness of what happens to us when we’re under pressure in the classroom and techniques for bringing ourselves back to being resourceful quickly. We also need to understand the interpersonal side of teaching kids yoga – what it is that makes children want to do yoga with you? How can we move towards them (especially the kids who are being difficult) and develop the sort of trust that is needed to make the yoga a natural thing for them to do?

Next we get into why you are there – what is your intent? – and how understanding this can create powerful authentic experiences for you and the kids.

Finally we bring the real experts in class management in. Experienced professional teachers share their best tricks and tips for making a class work. These are universal and work as well for a kids yoga teacher as a school teacher.

This isn’t a course with quizzes or certificates (though it will contribute to your Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Credits) – it’s a coaching course, helping you to new insights about yourself and your teaching, combined with a wide range of tried and tested class management techniques for making sure your class goes well.

    This course is amazing! I wish I had taken it before I started teaching kid’s yoga. Not only does it cover ever single challenge I faced in my first round of teaching kid’s yoga classes, but it also addresses the emotions of failure and incompetence that I felt after ineffectively dealing with those challenges. Thank you SO much for this course. I am reinspired to start teaching again! Jaime is truly the best!

    After taking Jaime’s Kids Teacher course, this class truly provides the extra tools to take your class to the next level! I loved the additional tips on how to prepare for a class and memorize an entire yoga story. I don’t think I have the best memory but after following her “Class Blueprint” I feel like I can quickly learn almost any story now! It was also wonderful to see her typical class structure including fun yogi-games and the “Golden Rules” which I can’t wait to incorporate into my kids classes! In addition, the section that addresses behavioral challenges during kids classes was priceless! Jaime offers amazingly positive solutions for almost any distraction that could occur during class! This course really helped me identify the roles that we play as a kids yoga instructor and the meaning behind why we show up to teach.

    I have been teaching kids yoga for about 3 years now. I found this course to have lots of wonderful tips. I will review it before the start of each new session until I’ve got it all down. Thank you for another wonderful training! All the Cosmic Kids training programs I have experienced have been thorough and well worth it.

    Great information, very informative. I have a lot of experience with adults in class and needed guidance in transitioning to teaching children. This was an extremely helpful tool.

    This course was really helpful and also reassuring. I have been teaching yoga to children for nearly three school terms now and every single example Jaimie gave in this course I have seen in my sessions (apart from the child vomiting, thank goodness!). This course has given me a few more ideas to add to my arsenal but it has also reassured me that however bad the session has gone, looking back, I was deploying the right techniques, I just need to refine them which of course only comes with experience. This course was exactly what I needed right now. It has renewed my confidence in myself and in my ability to share my love of yoga with the children who come to my sessions.
