Why is Pretzel Kids so special? Let us count the ways

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 plug-and-play training gives you all the step-by-step, easy-to-follow ingredients to teach well-structured and managed classes. We do this using our "8 Rules for Success" proven methodology. This is key to creating successful yoga classes for children time after time. When we say methodology, we mean it. This isn't just a bunch of fun yoga games and poses. Pretzel Kids is a proven teaching curriculum that's been implemented at schools, camps, after-school programs, daycare centers, gyms, teenage sports programs, yoga & fitness studios and more for 15 years! (but of course, if you only want to grab a game and go, or teach a breathing technique - we've got you covered there too).

The Pretzel Kids Yoga Teacher Certification Course is unlike any other children's yoga training on the market today! Our goal is to teach you all the fun stuff - games, poses etc. - while giving you tools to create structured classes that work.

If you've been delaying teaching children's yoga classes because you are not sure you can effectively structure a class, you can now breathe a sigh of relief. You're about to transform your skillset and become an in-demand kids yoga teacher.

Why is Pretzel Kids so effective?

Pretzel Kids is much more than a certification course. It's a full-blown original curriculum written by 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.

“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!”

– Sarah B. of Israel

"Since becoming a certified yoga teacher last summer I have been looking for a program that would cover the unique needs of pre-teens and teens who wish to learn yoga. I researched a half a dozen or so programs and decided on Pretzel Kids. I am so glad I did! From the first video I learned so much and have come away from this program with a better understanding of how to teach a yoga class to children from preschool on up to high school. I especially appreciate the two additional classes focusing on tweens and teens and children with special needs. Robyn is a wonderful teacher and she imparts such knowledge of what works. I am proud to be part of the Pretzel Kids community and would recommend this class to any yoga instructor who wants to work with children."

- Paula S. of Massachusetts

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
Are there any prerequisites to take this course?
Yes! You should have a desire to teach children and make a difference in the world! Also, we recommend that you practice yoga or have some familiarity with yoga.
After taking this course, can I call my classes Pretzel Kids? Can I call myself a Pretzel Kids teacher?
If you join our Pretzel Kids membership community and licensing program, the answer is YES to both questions! But, if you decide not to become a member, you cannot use the Pretzel Kids name to market your classes or business, and you cannot refer to yourself as a Pretzel Kids yoga teacher. You can, however, state that you've completed the Pretzel Kids Yoga Teacher Certification course and list this fact on your resume or bio. We know it can be a bit confusing, so feel free to reach out with any questions. We do highly recommend that you do join our community - as we offer all of the licensing and branding rights you'll need to build a kids yoga business. Learn more about the many perks and sign up here:
I own a yoga studio and would love to offer this course as part of my 200-hour teacher training. How can I do that?
We do off volume purchase rates for 5 or 10 instructors. We can also offer you special pricing for more than 10 teachers. Please email us at and we will be happy to discuss this!
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund. After that, you have lifetime access to the course so hopefully you will use the resources at some point in the future.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. Please note: Your enrollment gives you and only you access to the course. If your friends, family or colleagues wish to take the course, they would need to purchase the course individually.
Once I have completed the entire bundled 4-part course and send in my 2 completed lesson plans, when can I expect to receive my Pretzel Kids certificate?
You should receive your certificate via email in a PDF format in 7 days.
Where can I teach kids yoga classes once I take this course?
Anywhere kids congregate! We encourage you to teach at preschools, yoga studios, fitness centers, daycare facilities, after-school enrichment programs and more. We also encourage you to join our Pretzel Kids community so that you can teach branded Pretzel Kids classes and launch a successful business!
Is this course a Yoga Alliance RYT-C program? If not, can I get continuing ed credits through YA?
Our course is not a 95-hour program through Yoga Alliance. We have opted not to run our course in this way as A) This option is only available to RYT 200 teachers and, if you have taken a 200-hour program, you don't then need another 95 hours; B) Our founder used to offer a 200 hour RYT program (for 10 years) and researched the heck out of this. We determined that the most effective way to run our course is to do so independently and offer YOU a high quality course at a low price point. With that said, YES, this course is eligible for continuing ed credits through the Yoga Alliance. To learn more, see our founder's official YACEP profile page here:
Do I need any other yoga or fitness certifications to teach Pretzel Kids classes?
Pretzel Kids is a specific type of kids yoga program and certification course. If you join our instructor network and membership community, you will get a license to teach branded Pretzel Kids® classes. With that said, some facilities may also require a 200-hr yoga certification or another type of group exercise certification. So, you may need to check with hiring managers to learn about additional job requirements.
Can I use the word "Pretzel Kids" for my website URL, email account or social media channel names?
Pretzel Kids is a registered trademark and as such, you cannot use the name for your own business, email account, website domain name, or social media accounts. However, if you join the Pretzel Kids membership community, you will get licensing rights to use the Pretzel Kids name and logos for your classes and events. And, with your membership, you would be able to use our logos, name and brand on your own website. For further information, please contact us at
I'm not sure whether I want to become a licensed teacher right now. Can I join the membership program later?
Yes! You can join get membership program and become a licensed teacher at any time - so long as you've completed the course. When you become a licensed Pretzel Kids teacher, we will send you a new certificate.

"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."

-Louise L. of Ireland
