I'm interested in finding a Yoga Teacher Training Program for the Fall. Ideally something I could do while my kids are in preschool or on weekends. Andrea R

If you're looking for a kids yoga teacher training...then yes!!! Full of Joy Yoga offers a weekend training for kids yoga. Formerly out of the Bay Area and now on the East Coast, founder Lani, will be doing a training with a Berkeley kids yoga teacher named Amber. The training is Sept. 25th and 26th in Berkeley. Check out their websites if your interested: and Not only do I love yoga, but I am also a mom and a preschool teacher and will be attending this training to further my practice. Hope you come!!

Andrea, I just completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program that is Yoga Alliance certified with Leah Gillman of Barefoot Movement, located in downtown Oakland. She has a new Teacher Training program starting up in the fall, Sept- Dec, evenings and weekends OR Mon-Fri mornings from 9-11. programs/the-200-hour-certification/

It's a great schedule for a parent to work with, it's affordable, plus, it's a GREAT program. I can't say enough about Leah. I'm already teaching 3 classes currently and feel confident with my abilities. If you want to know more in depth, email me: leonorawillis [at] Leonora
