How to Get Started Teaching
Yoga to Children

Are you looking to bring yoga to children but don’t know where to start?

Our community is always asking for tips about teaching yoga to kids. 

In this series, I share my philosophy by detailing four steps to teaching to children, which are based on my experience as a certified yoga teacher, former primary school teacher, and mom. 

We’ll focus on our mindset of “being” a kids yoga facilitator in this series. I believe that we have to start from a strong foundation of our own yoga practice to make our yoga teachings authentic and meaningful for the children.

This four-part video series will get you started and have you confidently teaching yoga to children today.

This series includes:

  • Four videos walking you through the steps to teaching yoga to children  intentionally and with confidence
  • "4 Steps to Teaching Yoga to Children" workbook for you to follow along with each of the steps
  • Our “4 Steps to Teaching Yoga to Children” poster which you can hang up to be reminded of the four steps whenever you need a quick refresher


When I say “kids yoga teacher,” I’m referring to all of you in your roles as a parent, teacher, yoga teacher, health practitioner, or caregiver.

Whatever relationship you have with the children in your life, I believe these four steps will help you to feel calm, confident, and creative when introducing or teaching yoga to children.

Giselle Shardlow

Hello, my name is Giselle. I hold a Masters of International Education with almost a decade experience teaching grades K-5 in Guatemala, Australia, Canada and United States. I am also a certified yoga instructor and have led yoga classes here and there to young children since 2005, the year I started writing these stories. When I was asked to teach my first kids yoga class, I dove into research and was surprised at how few resources there were for a kids yoga instructor. So, I wrote my own. I have always been passionate about working with children and throughout my world travels, I recognized a great need to address child illiteracy, obesity and stress. My goal is to write stories that make reading fun – combined with movement, the stories thoroughly engage children as they laugh, express themselves, and stretch their imagination. I hope that my books, card decks, teaching resources, and other creative resources for kids are easy ways to introduce children everywhere to how fun reading and good health can be! My Mission for Kids Yoga Stories is to bring education, health and happiness to young children everywhere.
