Om at Home: The YogaKids Program for Parents is an amazing set of tools to share with your child so they develop the awareness within to feel empowered and be their best, truest selves. Your kids will learn how to regulate their own energy — you’ll be providing them with the resources and understanding they need to make positive, healthy choices. You won’t be struggling to “get them to do something” anymore!
What if the thing your child wants and desires most is simply more time with you? What if you could give them that desire PLUS the skills to develop their own physical and emotional well-being? The Om at Home© Program helps the whole family flow together with more ease and joy. When you are engaged and present through the non-judgmental YogaKids approach, you and your children transcend the predictable, limiting beliefs that can create stress. You’ll each enter a space of of love and acceptance that everyone can grow with and cherish forever.
Om at Home is designed for any and every parent. What if you don’t know anything about yoga? No problem. We’ll teach you the basics so you and your child can learn together. If you already have a practice, we’ll help you open even more to meet your kids right where they are without expectations.
And because our revolutionary program uses yoga as a springboard to expand the boundaries of what education is, you and your child will be learning way more than “yoga.” Math, science and language skills are supported in a whole new way. Just as importantly, everyone benefits from higher self-esteem, greater self-empowerment, and more self reliance. Everyone learns to listen to and trust in their inner knowing.

YogaKids International, Inc. based in New Buffalo, MI is a pioneer and leading provider of yoga to children around the world. The organization’s mission is to promote peace, healthy life-style, self-empowerment and a fun, effective way of learning to children. Unlike yoga for adults, the YogaKids program specifically supports the capacities of children of all ages.
The idea of yoga, breathing and mindfulness as powerful tools for change in the classroom began in 1986 by Marsha Wenig while teaching poetry to children in a Los Angeles elementary school. After years of research, the study of numerous educators such as John Dewey, Maria Montessori, Rudolf Steiner, Magda Gerber and Howard Gardner, along with lessons gleaned from hundreds of children, the company was founded in 1991 with one simple idea; help kids make a better world through yoga.
The YogaKids training program has influenced the lives of thousands of graduates, certified teachers and has revolutionized the way yoga is taught to children. Recognized three times by the Parents’ Choice Awards, our videos and other products have introduced more than a million children, their families and through them their communities, to the peace that yoga brings.
