RCYT 95-HOUR Children's Yoga Teacher Training - Fully Accredited with the Yoga Alliance, led by Laura. (JULY 14th - SEPT 18th)


"I am so grateful and happy I have signed up for this course! Although it an online course, it is very interactive and engaging and creates a healthy and supportive community.

Laura is very knowledgeable and genuine in her teaching style. If you want to have the right resources to teach children and teen’s yoga and mindfulness in your community and if you want to gain the confidence to spread the knowledge, then I highly recommend Divine Light Yoga teaching training led by Laura" - Faten, Yoga Teacher


Due to COVID-19, the Yoga Alliance is allowing Registered Yoga Schools to provide registered yoga teacher trainings online.

This will be the only opportunity that we will be able to offer the teacher training as a virtual training, as usually Yoga Alliance requires the hours to be in-person contact time with the lead trainer.

So, if you want to use this time mindfully, to bring some positivity, education and value to yourself, your family and your community, then join this unique, interactive, creative programme.

If you have been considering joining our RCYT 95-Hour teacher training programme but don't have the time, freedom, money or opportunity to travel to one of our locations, then this is the only time that I'll be able to come to you! (and I'm really excited about it!)


Testimonials: " Laura's approach is creative, relevant, holistic and fun. You will leave with a deeper appreciation of what children's yoga can look like and why it is so important! Laura is one of the most positive, knowledgeable and encouraging teachers I have ever met. Do it!" - Caroline, Primary School Teacher, Ireland


" It was refreshing, enlightening and inspiring to work with someone who is so passionate about Yoga and Mindfulness, but that also has the educational background and ability to inspire teachers to adopt it in a meaningful, realistic and age-appropriate way in their daily classroom routine.

Laura ensured that, following each session, where a new principle or practice had been introduced, she facilitated, guided and supported group discussions around how it can be embedded in the everyday classroom schedule. "

- Sarah, Deputy Head Teacher of a Primary School in Dubai

"I was initially afraid I would not be able to reap the full rewards of t hese workshop with Laura. Nonetheless, I was wrong. Laura’s vast experience working with children and teens and her love for sharing and coaching helped each and everyone who sat in her workshop.

From super effective behaviour management strategies, how to guide children across varied ages - on how to learn about mindful living and yoga practice and even age-appropriate simple meditation techniques. She opened doors to creativity and play for adults and children alike, through tons of games, singing, dancing, story-telling and gro up work.

With the huge variety of tools she shared, i definitely am feeling more confident in leading children and teens now." - Cherlyn, Corporate Professional

Testimonial: “Firstly, I would like to say that Laura is a fantastic, caring and knowledgeable teacher. I learned so much over the 10 day course, all of which I now feel confident to instantly use to teach my own children's yoga and meditation classes.

Laura instantly made me feel at ease and part of the group, all of whom arrived with a range of multicultural teaching and yoga experience. Her considerable depth of knowledge and practical experience of yoga, meditation, child development, teaching across the age ranges and pedagogical methods were instantly apparent and confidently communicated to each member of the group.

Laura made sure that there were many opportunities to practically apply what we were learning within the group and within a class with the local children.

If you are thinking of attending one of Laura's courses, do not hesitate. It will be the journey of a lifetime both for yourself and for the children you will teach afterwards.”

-Alex, Early Years Educator


"I could not have been happier with the course! Laura is so passionate and has such an extensive amount of experience in both Early Years Education and in yoga which was so evident in her teacher training. Everything was taught openly, genuinely and completely from the heart.

I felt that she gave all her students the tools they needed to open their minds to how they approach teaching yoga to young children. I left the training feeling confident and excited about the prospect of applying what I had learned to any situation. It wasn't just power point presentations listing different activities, it was a whole new way of looking at teaching children yoga".

- Gem, Early Years Educator, Hong Kong

"The workshops were well-planned with lots of activities that got the trainees involved so it was never dull, and we had such a fun time with Laura's repertoire of creative tools and techniques to engage children. My inner child was totally stoked!!!

She understands child development so well and shares all these deep knowledge through easy-to-understand ways. I loved how she was able to hold the space for such a large group of us, and managed to create this safe space for us to learn, share and teach.

Thank you for this amazing experience, Laura and I absolutely highly recommend her trainings to anyone who is keen to explore the world of kids' yoga". - Applie, Social Worker
