Children Do Yoga Teacher Training Course

Inspiring children through yoga.


The course is designed to provide comprehensive guidance on how to teach yoga to children in the classroom, yoga studio or other children’s venue.

Over the weekend you will learn how to:

  • Prepare a children’s yoga class in a way that keeps the kids engaged;

  • Learn more than thirty yoga poses and games specifically targeted for children using teaching materials developed by Jessica Wingate, including two books and flashcards;

  • Help children to relax and encourage them to have fun within a calm and restorative setting;

  • Learn simple meditation techniques so that children can leave your sessions feeling calm; and

  • Learn how to get children to focus within the moment using breathing practices and mindfulness.

Ongoing support is available from Jess following completion of the course, together with opportunities to attend refresher and advanced weekends for those would would like to do so.

How “Children Do Yoga” can help… 

Children feel increasingly stressed and overworked often with few ways of being able to counter the demands that arise in their lives. It’s more important than ever for children to have an outlet to breathe, to become aware of their body in a non-competitive environment, and to relax.

When a child is encouraged to take breaks and find calm, they’re better able to reach their potential at school and to live a more fulfilling personal life.

Through practicing yoga children learn to focus, concentrate and develop patience, as well as building strength, balance and flexibility. And within the yoga class environment they learn that it’s safe to express themselves.

Children Do Yoga Teacher Training has been designed to make yoga more accessible to children aged 5 – 12 years old. It can be taught during the school day as part of the curriculum, as an after school programme, at a yoga studio or an alternative calm space.

The programme takes into consideration the special needs that children routinely experience and teaches how to adapt the yoga poses and overall class accordingly.

About Yoga Hero

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga Hero has been established since March 2013. Initially, classes were ‘popping up’ in church halls, arts galleries, cafes, skateparks… you name it! Over time, we eventually found a beautiful home in Leeds Dock.

Yoga Hero has three studios, one with a capacity of up to 80, one with a capacity of 20, and the third is perfect for small private groups or one to one sessions. At Yoga Hero, we offer everything from Introduction to Yoga Courses, Pay As You Feel Classes, up to 200 hour Foundation Teacher Training Qualifications and Further Training, such as Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and much more!

About Leeds Dock

Leeds Dock

Yoga Hero is based in a beautiful part of Leeds called Leeds Dock. Leeds Dock is a 10 minute walk from Leeds Train Station, or there’s a free water taxi service between the train station and the Dock!


Around Leeds Dock are many affordable hotels, such as:
* Holiday Inn Express (Two minutes’ walk)
* Jury’s Inn (Five minutes’ walk)
* Ibis (Five minutes’ walk)
* Malmaison (Ten minutes’ walk)


There are also many very reasonably priced AirBnBs on the Dock


Leeds is a quite small city with loads going on. The whole city is walkable by foot, probably 40 minutes’ walk from one end to the other at a steady pace. There’s many independent restaurants and cafes, with our favourite North Star Coffee Shop just two doors down from the studio, serving incredible coffee and food during the day.


If you have any questions about Leeds; what to do, where to stay, or how to get here, just ask the team: // 07743513225.
