Family AcroYoga was developed as a way to stimulate playfulness, bonding and clear communication with the joy of physical movement for families and mixed age group settings.

Our program focuses on the art of teaching Family AcroYoga in a safe and encouraging environment over six days culminating in a Festival taught by participants on the seventh day! This training is designed to:

  • ENHANCE practical Family AcroYoga know-how

  • BUILD body & mind awareness 

  • CULTIVATE positive thinking, trust & the community mind

We will grow your capacity to work simultaneously with children and adults, and help you to develop the knowledge to spontaneously adapt the content of your lesson plans to  capable of simultaneously working with both children and adults


We will also share various skills including how to ‘manage’ large groups of adults & children, how to establish clear means of communication, how to practice elaborate physical exercises with the age groups, and how to make workshops and classes Interesting, beneficial and fun for children and parents.

This course is a special offering for AcroYoga practitioners but is open to those who have completed three modules of our Kids Yoga Training already and are stoked to focus on Family AcroYoga. We encourage you to connect with Deven prior to applying to prepare you and make your training the best it can be for where you are at.

Begin with our online course, Introduction to Kids Yoga Philosophy. Continue in-person for 2 modules offered multiple times per year that will hone your understanding, practice teaching, and integration. These can be taken ala carte for continuing education units (CEU), or in sequence to prepare for the full certification.


The full certification allows for one of two focuses: To become a Certified Kids Yoga Teacher, or to become a Certified Family AcroYoga Teacher. These foci are specialized and will allow you to share these practices formally as an extension of your teaching practice. If you are already an AcroYoga Teacher, you get a discount. Please choose that option when you register.
