What's So Special About Pretzel Kids?
Pretzel Kids is unlike any other children's yoga training on the market today! Most kids' yoga courses teach you poses, games and breathing techniques. But Pretzel Kids is so much for than just technique!
Think of this like a children's yoga business-in-a-box. Open it up, unpack the contents, and you are ready to rock and roll!
This training gives you all the step-by-step ingredients to teach well-structured and managed classes. We do this using our "8 Rules for Success" and "Borrow from the Bank" proven methodology. This is key to creating successful yoga classes for children time after time.
If you have been delaying teaching children's yoga classes because you are not sure you can effectively structure a class - beyond some fun yoga poses and games - our course gives you the tools to teach -- right now!
Why is Pretzel Kids so effective?
Because Pretzel Kids is not just a course, it's a full-blown original curriculum written by the Pretzel Kids founder, Robyn Parets, and two educators who are also yoga instructors. We know what works in a classroom setting as we've been there. This training gives you the key to unlock this treasure trove as well as create classes using our proprietary curriculum.
Pretzel Kids has trained yoga teachers, preschool teachers, occupational and physical therapists, dance teachers, psychologists, fitness trainers, moms, dads, nannies and more. Anyone can take our course - you don't have to be a certified yoga teacher! Our classes are now in schools, after-school enrichment programs, summer camps, fitness centers, yoga studios, and many other locations.
Think of Pretzel Kids as a way to help you not only learn and train, but grow a successful Pretzel Kids yoga business too!

“The Pretzel Kids teacher training was fantastic! It was my catalyst for getting involved with youth fitness. Since I took the course, I have taught kids yoga classes at the Boys and Girls club, elementary schools, community centers, and centers for kids with special needs. I have also taught classes for Girl Scout troops and private sessions. The training and manual effectively teaches how to adjust the curriculum to various age groups. Robyn has been an excellent and supportive mentor and is always there to answer a question or give advice. I have seen kids of all ages and abilities excel and love the classes as Pretzel Kids is so much fun!

“As both an educator and yogini, I was amazed by the high quality of the Pretzel Kids® approach, which combines the best in age-appropriate pedagogical practice with genuine yoga principles and techniques. I got all the tools necessary to begin teaching right away and all the kids I have worked with have loved the PK experience!”

"I thoroughly enjoyed my Pretzel Kids teacher training. The balance in the course content between skills and practicalities like advertising, lesson planning and rates to charge was appropriate. I secured teaching hours at my local Y and preschools. I moved home to Ireland a couple of years ago and the concept behind Pretzel Kids is just as relevant here as it was in MA."
