Are you ready to fast-track your journey towards becoming a kids' yoga instructor? Explore the variety of support we offer, whether you prefer private group sessions, in-person training, or personalized one-on-one coaching. Discover our dedicated offerings for children as well and enhance your teaching journey with us.

Professional Development

Are you looking to introduce the basics of kids yoga at your school or company as part of an in-service day or a broader educational goal? Professional development workshops offer an ideal platform for learning how to effectively teach yoga and mindfulness to children within a concise timeframe.

Optimal for in-person engagement, these workshops typically range from 1-4 hours, allowing for an immersive experience. We're ready to dive into the topics you're most passionate about, from weaving storytelling into kids yoga, integrating mindfulness into the classroom, to leveraging yoga as a tool for social and emotional regulation in small groups.

Private Trainings and Coaching

Are you aiming to elevate your kids' yoga teaching with tailored guidance, or do you want to fast-track your certification process? Our private training and coaching sessions offer an intimate learning environment, where you receive personalized instruction that meets your exact needs.

Whether you're an educator, therapist, or parent seeking to expand your knowledge in kids yoga and mindfulness, our private sessions are customized to achieve your specific objectives, ensuring a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of the practice. These sessions can be arranged for individuals or groups, depending on your preference and the number of participants interested in training.

School and Community Programs

Do you want to bring yoga and mindfulness to your school or community? Our programs are designed to create a safe, inclusive, and engaging environment for children to learn about their bodies, emotions, and inner selves.

From after-school programs to in-school workshops, we work with schools and organizations to provide age-appropriate and fun activities that incorporate yoga, mindfulness, and social-emotional learning. These programs are best when local to Minneapolis at this time, but travel or other options can be arranged in certain cases.

I had a wonderful experience with my coaching with Maia. She had written in advance to get information about my situation and needs, and had obviously done a good deal of preparation for our calls. She had detailed suggestions and helped me tremendously in making plans for the class. She shared from her own experience, and also suggested more resources to follow up. I feel very fortunate to have had this opportunity for coaching!

I discovered Kumarah Yoga and Mindfulness for Kids and Families online in summer 2022. Choosing Maia for her kind website wording, I found her knowledgeable and instantly connected during our first coaching call. As a preschool teacher eager to integrate kids yoga into my lesson plans, I immersed myself in Maia's resources and weekly coaching calls. Her course covered yoga foundations, mindfulness, and classroom management. Through weekly Zoom calls, Maia encouraged me, answered questions, and helped me develop confidence.
