Training Information

All students are required to finish modules one and two of OKAY BEFORE receiving their certificate. This will take approximately 4–6 hours to complete depending on your pace. Please do this before your live training so you, too, can be in the know. It is easier for students and teachers if everyone starts on the same page. Here is a glimpse of what’s in store for you with our Sample Training.
You do NOT need a prior Yoga teacher training to attend KAY trainings. Kidding Around Yoga is designed for anyone who loves to work with kids.

Since WE DO NOT REQUIRE A BACKGROUND IN YOGA, we highly recommend that you take some Yoga classes before the training. KAY offers an online introduction to Yoga course with a special discount for our students, it’s a great course to get you started. Use the discount code “KAYstudent” at checkout to receive 25% off the online introduction to Yoga Course. Click HERE to familiarize yourself with the poses we will focus on.

Continuing Education (CE) Opportunities


The founder of Kidding Around Yoga, Haris Lender, is such an inspiration. It is not often you go to a training and meet the founder, and much less, get trained first hand by that founder. As they say, the ‘proof is in the pudding’, and just looking at her following, and hearing about her 50 kids (plus) classes she teaches to children of all ages and backgrounds, is enough to know that what she does, teaches and believes in, is something special. I love to hear her talk about the children that attended her kids’ Yoga classes, and now practice Yoga every day in their college years..and thank her for it! — Linda

I’ve been teaching kids Yoga for a little over a year. I decided to get KAY Certified to open up opportunities to teach elsewhere. The KAY training has transformed my classes. I was confident in my teachings before, but this provided so many tools and fill in the puzzle pieces that I didn’t even realize were missing and created a great flow for the children and myself included. I love the KAY program and am absolutely recommending it to any of my yogi friends wanting to take that leap to children’s Yoga. Thank you Kidding Around Yoga! — Sarah
