Our sensory and yoga-inspired programme is a great way of introducing young children (18 months to 3 years) to stretches, movements, stories, songs and sensory play and its many benefits. Our course weaves basic yoga-inspired poses and movements into songs, traditional and modern stories and sensory play making it fun and engaging for both toddlers and parents.
Anyone wishing to learn to teach toddler yoga would do well to undertake a little background reading before starting their course or, if you’re already teaching classes, why not brush up on things covered on the course or explore different topics further.
