Hi, I'm Irina Kazakevic!

I've been providing training and professional development on yoga and mindfulness for school teachers and administrators, yoga teachers, therapists and parents since 2007.

Laura Lee MacLean

I taught kindergarten for over 20 years and always tried to incorporate yoga into my classroom.   I wish I had taken Irina’s training a LONG time ago!  I was a bit hesitant to take the training on-line as I am not particularly comfortable with technology but the way Irina structured the classes took the anxiety right out of the picture.  She is very patient and supportive and provided lots of alternatives in terms of delivering lessons.  Irina is incredibly knowledgeable and offered very engaging and interesting topics very relevant for children of all ages.  She is very experienced and was able to offer many real world examples to reinforce the modules offered in the training. The resources that you receive in this training are fantastic!  This is, hands down, the best training I have ever taken!  I would highly recommend this training to anyone who wants to bring the gifts of yoga to children.

I have just finished the training, but I feel I will really miss our meetings… It was a magical time! Not only the training allowed me to build a clear and structured picture of what a children’ yoga class should look like and what wonderful themes I can incorporate in the lesson to empower children to flourish, but it also allowed me to gain something on a deeper more personal level … connecting with like-minded people and learning more about Yoga philosophy, Ayurveda, Mindfulness etc from Irina – a person who is not only teaching yoga but also living ‘yoga’  – was truly inspiring experience in itself!

       Tracy Laidlaw

      I completed all 6 in-class modules with Irina with Yoga Break For Children. It was such a positive experience. Not only did I learn about teaching yoga to children, I learned a lot for my own personal practice. I really enjoyed the practices we did in class, both yoga and meditation. What I loved about taking her course in person was the hand on experience I got teaching actual kids. Irina is a wealth of knowledge as an experienced teacher working with children as well as a yoga instructor. She has combined her love for teaching as well as yoga in such a way that you can see the passion behind what she does. Thank you Yoga Break for Children for preparing me and teaching me how to impact the lives of children in a positive and playful way – through play and of course YOGA!

      Tracy Laidlaw Mother, Children's Yoga & Mindfulness Teacher

      I liked the way the training is structured. I initially thought it would be different poses and some breathing involved. I was truly surprised how Irina made me realize the importance of doing a lesson from being aware to achieving a positive result at the same time making it fun and helpful. I definitely would recommend the Yoga Break for Children training. It’s simple and very information. The method used is suitable for all age groups. Not only will you be able to teach the children but you will educate yourself as well. It will make you more confident with all age groups and give you a purpose to share valuable knowledge to children and make them confident and compassionate leaders.

      Having looked for an RCYT training that both fit my style of teacher as well as schedule, finding Yoga Break for Children’s 95-Hour Online RCYT training was the best investment of 2020 for my kids and family yoga teaching practice! It is a flexible program, provides opportunity for reflection, planning and collaboration with participants, and our Teacher Trainer, Irina. The online platform, as well as virtual platforms, have all been useful and amazing to share resources with everyone, as we are from many different time zones worlwide.

      While the training is different than being in person, the Yoga Break for Children RCYT online training invites yoga teachers and yoga enthusiasts to find alternative ways to connect to their class participants, communities and other yoga family members to continue their practice on their mat when in-person classes are not possible.

      I recommend this training for all yoga teacher wanting to branch out to become RCYTs, and for anyone who is wanting to incorporate yoga and activities in a variety of capacities in their daily routine and professions!
