95-Hour Kids Yoga Teacher Trainings
Cultural Immersion & Yoga Teacher Training
Join us for the experience of a lifetime in the Mayan Highlands of Guatemala!
We will spend 8 days together in one of the world’s most powerful healing vortex’s,
learning and studying about how to integrate yoga into the lives of children & families.
We will work directly with the indigenous children and families, volunteering our time and offering our service in various ways within the community and local villages.
Lead by Anjili Russell, co-founder of Sadhana Yoga School, we have compiled a unique training format that gives you as much time outside the classroom working with local child and families, in addition to what you are learning inside the classroom of how to share yoga philosophy, yoga practices and mindfulness with children and families.
Yoga is a practice that involves not just how to teach it, but also just a little “go do it” mentality!
Whether we are in the highlands of Guatemala, or the Monadnock Region of NH, we will integrate our classroom learning by volunteering our time and service to local community initiatives that center around creating healthy and whole families.
A message from Anjili Russell,
Co-Founder of Sadhana Yoga School and Lead Training Facilitator
Sometimes we say that something is a “Once in a lifetime Opportunity” but my friends, this truly is! Our 95-hour kids yoga teacher training programs are located in a magical indigenous village in Guatemala. In a home like setting, we will practice on a covered rooftop yoga space overlooking one of the largest freshwater lakes, surrounded by 3 (inactive) volcanoes. We will share organic meals with 80% coming from the land and local villages and residents.
I have lived in this community on and off for almost 10 years! I am well integrated into partnerships that have a direct impact and local indigenous people people and for 2018-2019 we will be offering 2 programs on the shore of beautiful Lake Atitlan and after that who knows! Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to teach yoga abroad and work and serve in highlands of Guatemala!
When in New Hampshire, the home base I share with my husband and son, we will contribute our time and service to non-profit organizations that have a direct impact on children and families. We will work with and teach local children and families through Kids Yoga School.
