Project Description

Teach with YoKid

Do you like working with children?  Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that gets you moving and promotes healthy habits for kids? If you're interested in teaching yoga to children, YoKid is the program for you!  Since 2006, 200 volunteers have taught more than 950 YoKid programs, introducing yoga and mindfulness to more than 7,600 children and youth in the Greater DC Area.

The impact of YoKid programs serves to cultivate the next generation of thoughtful leaders in the community.  The dedication and passion of YoKid teachers is at the heart of what makes our vision possible.  

Every season YoKid accepts 20-25 teachers into the program.  Each teacher is given hands-on training that can be used for Yoga Alliance CEs, a complimentary unlimited class pass to a partner yoga studio, complimentary registration for the National Kids Yoga Conference, complimentary professional development opportunities, and more fun perks along the way!
