The Radiant Child Curriculum

Our Focus

We know that children are inherently wise, radiant, and joyful at their core. However, today many children appear to struggle with anxiety, anger, depression, fatigue, lack of focus, imbalance, and injury. Often they are mirroring those qualities in the lives of the adults around them. By developing self-regulation and modeling confidence, peace, and love within ourselves, we strengthen the innate connection each child has to who they truly are.

 Our Courses

Learn at your own pace with virtual and on-demand classes with just the right amount of in-person classes, providing the perfect blend of independent study and direct interaction with trainers and classmates.

Since 1995, the prevailing intention of Radiant Child Yoga has been to improve the lives of all members of the family through breath, movement, and the development of the meditative state. Radiant Child remains committed to providing accessible, flexible, and most importantly, the highest quality programming.

The chart below represents courses in the RCY 30-hour, 95-hour and 200-hour certification programs. All courses are included in the 200-hour training.

If you have already taken the Foundations course, completed your 95-hour certification, or attended any other RCY courses listed below, all of those credit hours apply towards your 200-hour certification.

Former RCFY 200 graduates are granted a reviewer’s discount on any upgraded courses they want to retake.
