Teaching Tween and Teen Yoga
In the course, Pretzel Kids expert teen yoga instructor and curriculum writer Meagan Krasner leads you through several tried-and-true techniques for teaching yoga, breathing techniques and more to 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 also review and practice several class options that will keep older children excited about practicing yoga and mindfulness
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!
This course comes with a teen class activity plan and other resources 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.
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.

“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
We recommend this for anyone who is familiar with yoga or for existing yoga instructors who want to add to their wheelhouse. This course is also great for teachers and parents!
Hi everyone! I'm Robyn Parets, founder and creator of Pretzel Kids®. I'm also a marketing & branding expert, financial writer, and journalist.
I began leading Pretzel Kids yoga certification courses more than 16 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 do something they love. For this reason, I particularly enjoy 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 toddlers, children and teens. 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!
