Some of you might know me from Austin, Texas, my hometown and some of you might know me from Oakland, California, where I’ve lived for almost 3 years now. Or perhaps we met at my Love Your Yoga booth at one of the various yoga festivals I frequented in the summers!
My name is Liz Shakti and I have been teaching kids, family and teen yoga for 15 years. I’m so very excited to tell you about what’s going on with me now! After being a part of an amazing children’s yoga teacher training company in Austin for several years, working with transformational and business coaches, and teaching on average 20+ classes a week since moving, I’ve decided to take everything I have learned and channel it into a new amazing online offering!
It is a brand new 95 hour Children’s Yoga Teacher Training Program, that includes both online and live teaching modules. The program is Shakti Kids Yoga and is registered as a Yoga Alliance School.
Shakti Kids Yoga (RYS) specializes in children’s yoga, mindfulness and creativity teacher trainings, both online and live. I am the lead trainer for most of the trainings, and each training also has a special guest teacher segment as well!
The first 4-week online training is July 18-Aug 15. It’s called Fundamentals of Teaching Kids & Family Yoga, is 20 hours toward your 95 hr. YA approved certification, and includes a lifetime access to:
-11 hours of video lessons,
-weekly small group zoom calls,
-self-paced assignments: writing, lesson planning, practicum and observations
-Shakti Sprouts Community Facebook Page to share your process, questions and ideas.
-SKY Teacher Training Online Manual: Fundamentals of Teaching Kids & Family Yoga
-Shakti Kids Yoga 20 hour Teacher Training Certificate

On a personal note, I’ve really struggled trying to decide when is the best time to shine my light and share these gifts with you. The world is changing so rapidly and there seems to be so much upheaval, uncertainty and pain. Our children are feeling everything as well and I think these tools are needed now more than ever for us and for them! They are the future of our planet and through this platform and with these tools of yoga, mindfulness and creativity I wish to welcome every soul, no matter race, gender, ethnicity, country of origin, background story, or religion/spiritual belief system. We are all one, and standing together in love and unity, holding space for open awareness and honest conversation is of the utmost importance. It is by these principles, Shakti Kids Yoga operates. I strive to teach from a place of presence, love and understanding and I hope you will choose to join me on this path as well. We have one planet and we as humans, teachers, guides, parents, and caregivers, this is our chance, our opportunity, and our honor to raise consciousness, heighten our vibration and help change our world, our lives, our environment, for the better for our children and their future. I can’t wait to get to know you better, please reach out!
Thank you for taking the time to read this. <3
