The Breathe & Learn Kids Yoga

Weekend Immersion Training Program 


Registration closed for spring.  Stay tuned for fall 2019 trainings!

We believe yoga offers an opportunity to teach important life skills and plant the seeds for a lifetime of health and wellness.  Join us on our mission to share the gift of yoga with children.  


All trainings are led by Breathe & Learn Founder and CEO, Joanie Plake.  Her experiences in elementary and middle school classrooms (M.A. in Childhood and Special Education from New York University) and as an adult 200 RYT yoga teacher, informed the development of the B&L curriculum and this training.  She will be assisted by experienced teachers, who also hold 200 RYT certifications and more.


This comprehensive, 25-Hour Teacher Training will help you develop skills to relate to children ages 4-12 (Pre-K - 6th Grade) and promote physical, mental and emotional health through yoga.  We believe yoga offers an opportunity to teach important life skills and plant the seeds for a lifetime of health and wellness.  We welcome parents, educators, yoga and wellness practitioners, social workers and beyond, to name a few.  If you work with kids, or hope to, our training will help you begin your journey of sharing the gift of yoga.


Come with an open mind and dedicate one weekend to breathing and learning that can truly change the trajectory of your life and the children whom you will be able to share this gift.
