Be the Change!
“So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you’ll move mountains.” Dr Suess


Can you imagine if every child was given the opportunity to develop their inner knowing? What if all children were equipped with the emotional and intellectual tools that are much needed to face the challenges they will encounter along their life's journey?

This is our opportunity to create something meaningful that will nurture the next generation of conscious change-makers.

Yoga for Kids Bali provides a holistic and sustainable Kids Yoga Teacher Training that will grow the whole child with creativity woven into all aspects of learning.

Our focus is on emotional intelligence, self-confidence, resilience, community awareness, and values.

Our Vision

We believe that every child walks their own life path. Our role is to stimulate and support motivation from within. By encouraging the discovery and learning opportunities from the child’s natural interests, we build their self-confidence and love for learning. We give children as much space, as possible, to discover and create and be free to explore their natural instincts and gain life skills and knowledge through their own unique personal experiences.

We are trying to create a better world so our children can relate to it and understand how crucial this is.

Our Purpose

Yoga for Kids Bali’s core educational philosophy is that all children are born with a natural and insatiable curiosity and that people learn best in non-coerced, self-directed situations. We are inspired by the way in which integral teaching sees the child as rich, resilient, and resourceful, and always in relationship with his/her environment encompassing an all-inclusive survey of the human experience. The mentor is a patient observer and moderator, with the ability to step back and allow discussion and discovery.

By learning alongside us you are able to provide countless opportunities for children to explore a world without boundaries. We help preserve the natural love of learning that people are born with. Yoga for Kids Bali allows children the freedom to thrive socially, intellectually, experientially, academically, creatively, and personally.

Our Yoga for Kids Teacher Training is for:

How we do it:

We aim to develop the following 4 lines of Enquiry.

Body, Soul, Mind, and Spirit.

Our curriculum is thus a system where we integrate a 'whole person' education with a fully holistic approach.


"Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality."

About Jeanne

Created from my own childhood trauma to give children the tools I never had growing up… My story begins at Uzenmyethu child care facility, GuGulethu Township, Cape Town, South Africa. Teaching yoga to children in the most poverty-stricken area of the western cape. It's here where I decided that I want to teach children life skills that could go beyond school,  and promote health and wellness in other areas of their life.

Over the past 10 years, I have been working with children with all types of backgrounds, sharing the gift of yoga. Noticing this growing need for change,  I wanted to create a training not just for Yoga Teachers, but for Parents, Teachers, Educators, and Caregivers, anyone who wants to empower young minds to be in touch with their inner being; anyone who wants to empower young minds to be the best they can be. Anyone who wants to teach children to love who they are, body, mind & spirit. Anyone who wants to invest in themselves in a way that would benefit children and teens for years to come.

TESTIMONIAL from Sunrise School Bali

The benefits of mindfulness and yoga are unquestionable, Sunrise School Bali undertook Yoga for Kids Bali's services and training this year across all areas of our school. As a result, we now have all of our teachers using consistent language and techniques with our students to support them in their emotional, social and behavioral journeys. At Sunrise, we believe all children learn best when they feel safe and supported, so her program has offered us a way to connect with our students on a deeper level. When children feel connected, they can learn. The Mindfulness activity card sets are a wonderful and practical tool for teachers to use in all classes, and at all times during the day. We often hear the children talking about the 'Sound Detectives' and 'The Belly Breath'.

Our teachers have also been through a personal journey in understanding how important their own well-being and care is to their role as teacher. It was interesting for them to discover that the techniques Yoga for Kids bali has given them for working with children are just as relevant for them as adults.

We highly recommend the services Yoga for Kids Bali provided and the training and tools for both teachers and children. We are very grateful to Yoga for Kids Bali for working with our teachers and allowing them to extend themselves both professionally and personally.

"...what an experience"

This was my first time taking any sort of yoga training for children and I'm so inspired. 

When I first signed myself up my intentions were to find more tools to work with children in a classroom setting. I have been working in International High Schools as a theatre teacher for many years, so I was hoping to discover more ideas to use with my students to encourage mindfulness, address performance anxiety, confidence and self-belief. 

These tools however not only provided me with a range of useful tools to weave into my work with older children but also an amazing range of ideas to use in my daily life with my own toddler. I hadn't expected such a comprehensive course introducing me to brain, physical and sensory development. 

I have taken several teacher trainings over the years but I have never walked away with such life-affirming and useful techniques - my heart is full. 

I am very grateful for totally recommend this course to anyone and everyone wanting to make a difference in the lives of children. Particularly those who want to more deeply understand their own child's development and parenting journey.

"...beyond expectations"

I booked this course not really having any expectations, I just knew that there was going to be a lot of information to squeeze into that amount of time. I loved EVERY. SINGLE. SECOND. Jeanne really has a way of capturing your attention & relaying information in a way that really makes you want to learn more, she opens a cosmos in your mind & is one of the most inspiring people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Being able to visit the school & really immerse ourselves in the practical part was honestly such a heart- warming experience. Connecting with youth in a different country & community really opens your eyes, I would 10000% recommend this course for anybody who not only works with or has kids but everybody interested in human psyche. This was such an amazing experience <3 Thank you Jeanne, Peaceful Warriors & Serenity for creating a beautiful experience :)
