Ready to Stand Out as a Kids Yoga Teacher?


Yep, we're kid's yoga specialists and we created this program for people who want to specialize in yoga and mindfulness for youth from toddlers to teens.

If you want to stand out as a kids yoga teacher, you need to build your skills and your reputation.

We've done that with kids yoga, and keep doing it, and we'll give you our systems and tools so you can stand out as a kid's yoga teacher.

And did we mention kid's yoga is our specialty?

For over 20 years, we've been taking Kids Yoga to the world at Young Yoga Masters. If you're looking to start teaching kids, or maybe you're already teaching and you're ready to create a sustainable business you can have for years, or decades.

Consider how specialized support could help you reach your goals.

There are two ways to get support to grow as a Kids Yoga Teacher:

Turn Something you already Believe In and Love into your Business or Side Gig

Whether you've already completed a training or you want to learn to teach kids yoga, this is the place to specialize in the niche of kid's yoga!

The lead trainers at Young Yoga Masters will support you to take something you love and believe in (kids yoga!) and turn it into a legitimate income stream.

Aruna has been self-employed for over 25 years as a yoga teacher, content creator, product creator, trainer, and business owner. She has taught kids yoga, family yoga, adult-tot yoga, at camps, retreats, has written over 300 articles on kids yoga, and trains new teachers through her Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Schools (200 HR + Children's).

That's why I'm excited to help you prioritize your business growth!

Hi! I'm Aruna Kathy Humphrys


In 1998 I graduated from my first yoga teacher training and eventually quit my job to become a full time yoga teacher. I feel so fortunate to have a job I enjoy.

My career has gone from teaching 25 yoga classes a week, branching out to create workshops, retreats, strategic partnerships, and writing manuals and teaching in a Yoga Alliance RYS + RCYS.

I've experienced successes and failures along the way and I want to help you succeed and avoid the mistakes that I made!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the Certification for?

Can I join the Membership Without taking the Certification?


Yes! The Business Accelerator and Mentorship is open to you if:

  • You already Teach Kids Yoga + Graduates of the Young Yoga Masters training of another kids yoga teacher training.

  • You have completed a training and want to Put Yourself Out There and start building your ideal teaching schedule of Kids Yoga classes.

  • You want Support and Systems to Grow your Kids Yoga Business perhaps by getting an online presence, website, or establishing an email list.

  • You're ready to Expand your Business with new offerings and products and a long-term business strategy.


What Counts With Yoga Alliance?


  • The 95 Hour Certificate counts towards your RCYT (Registered Children's Yoga Teacher) designation with Yoga Alliance. The other RCYT requirements are explained here.

  • All training also counts as Continuing Education with Yoga Alliance for Registered Yoga Teachers.


Who is BAM! NOT For?

  • The membership alone is not for you if you don't know how to teach kids yoga. BAM!'s focus in on implementing our Kids Yoga teacher training and building a business. If you need to learn to teach kid's yoga we recommend you choose the 95 Hour Certification with BAM! included.


  • It's also NOT for you if you want to combine certificates from different training programs to earn your 95 Hour Certificate. Unfortunately Yoga Alliance doesn't allow this because they require all 95 hours to be from the same Registered Children's Yoga School.
