The YYT Philosophy
Young Yogis Toronto offers yoga and mindfulness programs for children and their families. Our programs enable children of all ages and abilities to discover their inner voice through conscious breath and playful movement.
We offer several unique and affordable programs to the Toronto School Board, and beyond, as well as private in home sessions.
Who’s Behind Young Yogis Toronto?
Cyndi Cornblit, founder and director of Young Yogis Toronto, is a certified children’s yoga and mindfulness instructor, who has been practicing for over two decades, and has logged hundreds of hours teaching children’s yoga.
Through dedication to her teaching practice, she has earned her E-RYT 200 and RCYT, internationally-recognized credentials that qualify her to teach both adult and children’s yoga, as well as educate other yoga teachers!
As the mother of two school-aged boys, Cyndi began to see the value of kids mindfulness programs take hold within her own family, and felt strongly that those programs could translate to, and transform, the learning environment.
Cyndi began her classroom programs in the hopes of making yoga available to as many children as possible – regardless of skill, experience or resources. Her personal mandate: Yoga For All!
Founder & Director
Young Yogis Toronto
Cyndi’s intention is to help kids of all ages and abilities live in the moment and connect with the world around them, by fostering a nurturing environment that encourages children to play and explore.
Cyndi is dedicated to promoting health and wellness for growing families.
She believes that yoga is the bridge between body and mind and with focus and patience the possibilities are limitless.
“That is what makes teaching children’s yoga so gratifying; you see the positive impact straight away. It is an incredible experience!”
Our School Program
Our innovative curriculum is crafted for elementary, middle, and high schools. Programs for primary, junior and senior students are individually designed to meet the unique needs of the students, their school and their communities.
Our minis program is tailor-made for daycares, preschools, and Montessori schools.
Our most popular offering is our integrated-education program, taught to both teachers and students, in the classroom setting. Currently offered in partnership with the Toronto District School Board, our programs can be readily adapted to suit the individual desires of other public and private institutions.

Some of our happy clients.
“The memories we made from the hours Cyndi spent at our home are invaluable. She accommodates children of various ages and finds something relevant for everyone. In addition to the quality family time her lessons afforded, the children learned life lessons about how to cope and manage in an increasingly stressful and competitive school environment. One of my fondest memories is ‘yoga under the stars,’ which we held in our backyard on warm summer nights.”
In-Home Private Client
“My students always look forward to Cyndi’s yoga classes. Her approach to mindfulness and yoga is creative, insightful and balanced. She has a deep understanding of child development and her classes promote curricular goals like collaboration, cooperation, problem solving, active living and self regulation. Cyndi helps to take our class beyond the walls of our school and we are forever grateful to her for sharing her love of yoga with us.”
“Cyndi creates and adapts routines to suit students’ physical and emotional development. Yoga has been a good partner in our work on mindfulness and self-regulation. Cyndi’s themes are engaging and appropriate to the seasons and school topics. We would like to have more yoga.”
“Cyndi is so wonderful with the kids from the Nook! Her yoga classes are accessible to anyone and everyone. She had a group going with kids from the age of 5 all the way up to the adults that were working with the program, and every person had a relaxing and fun experience. I highly recommend Cyndi for running any sort of yoga workshop. I look forward to her working with our program again.”
