About the training

Teaching children Yoga is much different than teaching adults. And, how can it not be, a child’s brain and body are not fully developed and they are processing through much different experiences than those of adults.

When we teach, our responsibility is to meet people where they are at, to hold space, and to present an opportunity for movement. In my 95/45-Hour Be the Shift Kids Yoga training, you will learn how to do just that. You will learn how to come from the perspective of the children.

The 95 Hour training includes 3 months online followed by a 4-day in-person practicum.

The 45 Hour training for certified 200 Hour Yoga Teachers includes a 5-day in-person practicum.


What’s Included

  • A practical and transformative exploration of Classical Yoga Philosophy
  • A unique perspective on movement via my ‘Shift Into Your Life’ process
  • Learn to apply ancient philosophy for various stages of life
  • Learn to meet children where they are at mind, body, and spirit
  • Learn to co-create with the students

Location & Time

Fully Online During Lockdown 

I received my 95 hour Kid’s Yoga Teacher Training certification from MOVE by Tracey McDonald in 2018. Tracey is a fantastic instructor whose classes are engaging, educational and fun. The online training focused on the philosophical aspects of yoga while the in-class instruction taught us how to develop children’s yoga classes that incorporate mindfulness, movement and meditation. The combination of the online and in person instruction left me feeling confident in my ability to develop and lead yoga classes that children will love and appreciate. I have taken what I learned from Tracey and utilize in my daily practice will my own children at home as well as the elementary students I teach at school each day. I have also developed parent and child yoga classes that I now teach at a local yoga studio. I highly recommend the Kids Yoga Teacher Training from MOVE to anyone who has children, works with children or just wants to add some fun and playfulness to their own practice. Tracey is so knowledgeable and approachable – she is a wonderful instructor and has become a great friend.

“This training gave me a new persepective! It allowed me to play and to connect to the joy of my innerchild. I encourage you to take part in the adventure of children’s yoga training, it is a wonderful extension of the 200hr training and gives you the opportunity to truly connect with people no matter what their age. I attended the training in 2017 and Tracey makes it so much fun and enjoyable with poses, props and her childlike imagination. It has enhanced my yoga teaching and brought more play into my classes, with adults, children and teens. Tracey is true teacher of knowledge, fun and adventure. Thank you Tracey.
