Radiant Child® Yoga (RCY) is a comprehensive training program designed for anyone who is interested in teaching children yoga. The vision of RCY is to create a world of peace through the union of yoga and children.
RCY was founded by Shakta Kaur Khalsa, who recognized the need for children to be given the opportunity to thrive and blossom through the gift of yoga. Radiant Child® Yoga began in 1999, and is one of the very first training programs for teaching children yoga ever offered anywhere in the world. It has grown from teaching groups of 5-10 to groups of 50-100 as yoga for children has become more widely known for its beneficial effects on children’s health and happiness.
RCY participants include yoga teachers of all traditions, schoolteachers, therapists, parents and grandparents. Previous yoga experience is helpful although not required. Participants gain a wide variety of practical yoga tools and tips, and have fun playing at being a child again.
RCY levels 1-3 include certificates of course completion and an opportunity to be listed as a teacher on www.childrensyoga.com.
RCY has been approved for CEUs in public schools, as well as Yoga Alliance 500 level accreditation.
