2018 Kids Yoga Teacher Training

Sundara Yoga was formed to create a space for children to learn and explore with no limitations. Our mission is to nurture little souls on a physical, mental and emotional level. In addition to this it has always been the dream of our founder to use yoga as a therapy for children and adults. Working intuitively with each child and focussing on their individual needs is of utmost importance to us.
