Loved my training with Young Yoga Masters

I absolutely loved my training with Young Yoga Masters. I already had considerable amount of training and experience working with children and yoga before coming to this training. Even so I was blown away by the scope of the training, the amount of material we were able to cover, the huge number of new ideas, inspiration and resources I was given access to, and the friendliness and knowledge of the lead trainers. I would recommend this program 100%
