How many hours of the 3-Day Training can I miss and still attain a certificate? (Absence/ Attendance Policy)
The 3-Day Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training is jam packed with tools, techniques and ideas for running amazing yoga classes. In this short time we cover a huge amount of information, and every part is really important. We really believe there is value in attending the entire training!
Full participation in the training is mandatory. Please make appropriate family, work and travel arrangements to make sure that your participation in the training is not compromised.
We have a Clear Absence Policy; “3 hours is the maximum time that a student can miss of the Training. If a student misses hours and they want to get their certificate, they need to be given the appropriate reading from the manual, complete and report back to the trainer by the end of the Training.”
If you want to arrange a make up day at another training, this is a possibility. You will not be able to gain your certificate unless all 3 days have been attended.
Can I make up some of the work by doing the online training?
Unfortunately, no. These two different modes of training vary slightly in the course content and delivery.
Do you give discounts/ scholarships/ exchange for tickets?
We offer Payment Plans which can be paid off (3 installments, due prior to training). Contact [email protected] to request a payment plan.
We do have Financial Aid Scholarships available for our 3-day Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training for students that need financial assistance.
Our financial aid comes solely from Gopala and Angel, we have no outside sources helping us out. These limited funds are reserved for students experiencing extreme financial, health, family and otherwise related challenges. And for people who really want to make a difference in the world with children through yoga. We believe that ideally, everyone who really and deeply wants to do the training should be able to. Especially in our current economic climate, we believe yoga is more important than ever. And being able to share yoga with kids (and learn from them) is deeply rewarding.
We only have the amount of one full tuition set aside for each training, we generally split this between two students, giving them 50% off their tuition each.
How to apply:
- E-mail [email protected] and request a Financial Aid application form
- Fill out the Financial Aid application form by downloading the form directly onto your computer. Email the form back to [email protected]. Or the form can be mailed to Rainbow Yoga Training, to request our address please email [email protected].
- Attach a scanned copy of the first page of your latest Federal Income Tax return.
- Please be as honest as you can so that we can provide you and other students with the best possible aid that we can.
- Please only apply for financial aid if the full tuition is totally prohibitive for you.
Once we receive your email, we’ll review it and then write you back. There are no Financial Aid deadlines, but if all financial aid spots are taken for a training and you are approved, you’ll be placed on a waiting list and contacted when a space opens up for the current or future training.
What do I need to bring to the training?
- Yoga mat
- Notebook and pens
- Water bottle
- Snacks and lunch
- Laughter and readiness for FUN!
Can I bring my child/ children?
We do sometime have kids present and mostly it works well if they are 6 years old or more. The training is very intense. It is 9 hours a day of moving between playing yoga and listening to practical lectures about teaching techniques. While your child might be able to join in a lot of the activities, it will depend on their patience and temperament during the lecture components.
We suggest that it would be great if you have a friend or relative that can take care of your child/ children for a portion of the training. Otherwise, please bring different activities to keep your child/ children busy and entertained. Full attendance remains essential and mandatory to meet the course qualification, so please ensure this is not compromised.
9 hours (Even if it is 9 hours of fun) is a long day for a child, the Training is also 3 days in a row. As long as you are prepared to give your child the attention they need, it can often work to both keep your child happy and keep the training moving smoothly. The training is amazing, and I’m sure you will have loads of fun sharing it together!
I'm pregnant, can I still attend the training?
Naturally we are completely unfamiliar with your medical history and your pregnancy so we can’t tell you if you should or should not take the course. Please consult your doctor before making a decision about attending the Training during pregnancy.
The course can be very intense, there is a lot of running and jumping involved. However, that being said, you can always modify moves or sit parts out if you need to. You’ll still learn everything, it will just be less exertion. There are videos on our website that will give you an excellent idea of what the course is like, you should show them to your doctor so they also can give you the most informed opinion about taking the Training during pregnancy.
We have had many students join the Training in all stages of pregnancy, however please consult your doctor before confirming.
Can you recommend accommodation options?
We recommend AirB&B, Booking.com, Expedia.com or Hotels.com to search for accommodation options to suit your needs in the Training location. You can use the training location or studio address to refine your search for the closest options.
Can I get insurance using your Certificate?
Yes, you can take take out public liability insurance. There are plenty of options for insurance and seeking local advice from fellow yoga teachers is a great way to come across these. Here are insurance companies that we, and many of our graduates, use:
In Australia: www.insurancehouse.com.au
In Europe: BGi.uk.com
Are there places still available for the course?
Yes, all our trainings on the website have availability. We will display on the site once at Training is sold out.
I'm not a yoga teacher. I'm not very athletic or fit. Is this training suitable/ appropriate for me?
The course is for anyone who loves working with kids or loves yoga. It is for yoga teachers wanting to specialise, and educators wanting to bring the benefits of yoga to their classrooms. It’s for anyone who works with children: Child psychologists, paediatric physiotherapists, paediatric occupational therapists, nurses, speech therapists, nannies and many other therapists and occupations have taken our Training and loved it. It’s also a great for parents to find new ways to connect with their children, and share a healthy, fun, and non-competitive movement-based activity with their families. It is for anyone who wants to expand a current related profession, or learn a new one! All you need is a love for being with children and having fun!
I've never practiced yoga before or don't have much experience, can I still do the training?
Yes! The Training is intensive but also super fun! You do not need to be super flexible or a yogi to participate. During the training there is a lot of hands on and learning done through experience. If you feel you would be more comfortable after attending a few yoga classes prior, please go ahead. But, this is not a requirement. The training also has a large component of theory and learning from the trainer. You will gain a lot of knowledge and skills to apply in your work with children.
What age range/ type of content does the training cover?
- Gaining valuable teaching experience
- Yoga for kids aged 3 – 18+
- Over 350 Yoga poses for kids

Can I do the 95-hour training with no other experience/ training?
To qualify for our 95-hour Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training you need to be a Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training 3-day Graduate.
In 2017 we are hosting a 95-hour Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training in Los Angeles and London.
I am an Alliance certified Yoga Teacher. I have done your 3-day Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training and tried to apply as a RCYT but my application was denied. Could you help me understand why?
The Yoga Alliance you are registered with most likely has an hour requirement for you to qualify for the RCYT.
For this reason we have brought you our 95-hour training. Once this is completed, this is recognised as Yoga Alliance certified and you may then submit this certificate to qualify for the RYCT.
I have done your 3-day Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training and now want to apply as a RCYT, what do I need to do?
After completing the 3-day Rainbow Kids Yoga Training you are now able to teach right away!
If you are interested in the RCYT certification you need to be an existing Registered Yoga Teacher.
If you are a Registered Yoga Teacher you need to continue onto our 95-hour training to qualify for the RCYT.
If you are registered with Yoga Alliance Canada or Yoga Australia you can complete additional requirements to qualify for the RCYT without completing the 95-hour training.
