RYCT, Registered Yoga Children’s Teacher is a new specialty designation offered by Yoga Alliance beginning in 2011. The yoga community as well as the schools and health professionals are recognizing the need to require standards to teach yoga to children. Yoga Alliance has over 2000 yoga schools registered worldwide. There are only a little over 40 yoga studios that have the designation of a children’s specialty school, and less than 20 that have a 95-hour teacher-training program.
In addition to the teacher training program, Shanti Bala Yoga Project~Peaceful Child Yoga has children yoga classes Monday through Friday at Yoga Polarity Center, for more information and schedules go to www.yogapolarity.com, or call Shanti Bala Yoga Project, 516-203-2385.
