Meet the 11-Year-Old Yoga Teacher
Amandine Lerner is 11 years old and she's a certified yoga instructor. She did Yoga Alliance's 200 Hour Teacher Training, and she's teaching kids in Miami. Although she can technically teach adults, Amandine says she got certified so she could teach kids at T.H.R.I.V.E. vegan restaurant in South Beach.
Amandine's mom, who has been practicing yoga for ten years, introduced Amandine to yoga last year and she's been hooked ever since. Just like us adults, there are still some poses that she finds difficult. Amandine admits that Peacock is a challenge for her -- who can blame her?
Amandine's classes are donation based, with half of the proceeds going to charity and the other half going to supplies. We love that she's already thinking philanthropy!
We love kids yoga, but do you think age 11 is too young to be teaching?
And what do you think about certification at such a young age?
