Frequently Asked Questions
If you have any questions about our courses, how they work, payment options, certificates or any other general queries you will most likely find the answer here…
Q: Why didn’t I receive my order confirmation and/or my email to access the online training modules?
A: Unfortunately we are experiencing some technical difficulties with our emails and the access to the online training modules email often finds it’s way into your Spam folder. Be sure to check. The best thing to do is add the following emails to your contacts to make sure they land in your inbox: and @m.teachable.com
Q: Is the online training the same as your live intensive, in-person training?
A: There is no way to replace the experience and elation you will feel when you join your peers and new friends locked in a room together, discovering the joy of kids yoga for two intense days. That being said KAY’s online kids yoga teacher training is for you if you are:
- From an area that we don’t currently have a training scheduled for – but remember, you can always apply to Host a training in your area!
- 9 1/2 months pregnant
- In the military
- A single mom at home with a brood
- On the road
- At sea
- In space
Our online program will cover the entire curriculum from our live training. You will even have mentors in your own Facebook forum to help bridge the gap. This is THE best kids yoga online training available, in our humble opinion. 🙂
Q: Do you have a sample training I can take?
A: YES! Do you want to know exactly how our training works? Check out our sample training.
Q: Do I need to be a certified yoga teacher to take the training?
A: No you do not! All that is required is that you love children and want to teach them yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and stress-management. We’ll take care of the rest.
Q: What if it takes me a long time to complete the online training?
A: You have 60 days to complete the online training, and then a further 90 days of access once you’ve completed it. You’ll get a total of 150 days access to the course, from the time of registration. If you want unlimited access PLUS additional resources, OKAY Plus is a great option!

public schools * private schools * yoga studios * recreation centers * martial arts centers * homeless shelters * birthday parties * festivals and fairs * day camps * Parents Night Out events * parks *libraries * dance studios

A: Your best option is to have another KAY teacher sub for you.

Of course, sponsoring a KAY training in your town will assure you that you will have a wonderful family of teachers to choose from! Your kids are going to be spoiled by our system!

A: For the live trainings, you will receive 23 CEUs that are recognized by the Yoga Alliance. If your trainer is a CE provider (most of our trainers are), you will receive 15 contact hours and 8 non-contact hours. If your trainer is not a CE provider, all 23 hours will be considered non-contact. *You can check your trainer’s provider status on the registration/information page for the specific training you will be attending. For our complete online training, OKAY, all 23 hours will be considered non-contact hours with the Yoga Alliance.
