Teaching Tween/Teen Yoga
Learn Tried-and-true Techniques for Teaching Yoga to Tweens and Teens
In the course, Pretzel Kids expert teen yoga instructor and curriculum writer Meagan Krasner leads you through several tried-and-true techniques for teaching classes for tweens and teens.
Leading a Pretzel Kids class for kids between 12 and 17 is vastly different than teaching a class for younger children. In this add-on segment, we will review and practice several class options that will keep older children excited about your classes.
As an added bonus, we will work on specific partnering activities that are proven effective in teen classes. This is an invaluable course and we are thrilled to offer it to you for the very first time!
This course comes with a teen class activity plan to help you get started!

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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Hi everyone! I'm Robyn Parets, founder and creator of Pretzel Kids®. I'm also a marketing & branding expert, financial writer, and seasoned journalist.
I began leading Pretzel Kids yoga certification courses more than 12 years ago under the umbrella of my former Boston yoga studio, Breathe Joy Yoga. I also formerly ran a 200-hour TT school, so my intention with Pretzel Kids is to give YOU a fast and easy way to teach kids yoga - without spending thousands of dollars on an RYT-200 course (that, by the way, won't prepare you to teach a bunch of 5-year-olds.) Yup, it's true.
I absolutely love helping women make big bucks doing something they love. For this reason, I'm also a business coach at iFundWomen, and spend my time mentoring licensed Pretzel Kids teachers on launching their own successful businesses.
Pretzel Kids® was founded as a way to offer a structured yoga play environment for children. In fact, our ground-breaking children's yoga curriculum was written by school teachers (also yoga instructors). It is designed to model effective classroom educational programs and make it easy for YOU to begin teaching kids yoga immediately.
When not teaching and coaching, I like to travel, meditate, spend time outdoors, read & write, and hang out with my family and dogs. You can learn more about me on my personal website HERE. Let me know if you have any questions!
