This comprehensive certification course focuses on how Yoga can serve as a transformative life practice for teens by fostering their physical, mental, social, and emotional development.
The program is suitable for Yoga teachers, school teachers, social workers, therapists, parents, and those who want to make a difference in the lives of youth.

This was such a fun training! I learned a lot of practical skills and games. It was helpful for me to see how Lila structures her classes. There is so much more to Yoga than asanas. — Erin Haddock
I was the only teen in this training group of amazing teachers, and they treated me with so much respect and made me feel like I was one of them. The community here is so strong and supportive, and I have learned more than I could have ever imagined. Yogaville is truly a heaven on Earth. — Vaish Gundavaram
