Yoga for Kids with Special Needs: A Mini-Course

Simple Ways to Work with Children on the Spectrum - Starting Today!


We are so excited to bring you this add-on course! This is a perfect addition to Pretzel Kids certification course and will help you choose activities and lesson plans to teach yoga classes for special needs children.

Our expert special needs yoga instructor, Meagan Krasner, unlocks a treasure trove for you as she leads you through specific developmental activities and techniques that are proven effective in teaching children on the spectrum. These yoga activities can be included in any Pretzel Kids class or they can be used to create specific lesson plans to lead classes just for children with special needs.  

Meagan has been teaching yoga to children with special needs for more than a decade and has three children of her own -- one who has Asperger's and has benefited greatly from the Pretzel Kids yoga methodology and curriculum. Meagan also works as a genetic counselor and has been instrumental in developing Pretzel Kids programming for children with special needs.  

As an added bonus, you will receive Meagan's resource guide with the purchase of this course.

Hear from our students:

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.  

- Paula S.

“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

Kids and parents both love these classes!

“I'm so grateful that someone has a program that includes "not your typical" child. My son has developmental delays that make typical classes difficult. But with Pretzel Kids classes, he is able to stay focused and participate. He has a blast in every class! I can't say enough about the Pretzel Kids program. Love it!"

Your Instructor

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!  

If you enjoy this mindfulness course, we highly recommend our Pretzel Kids® Teacher Training Course and Membership.
