Facilitating life skills for emotional & mental well-being to children and youth 3 - 18 years & their schools 

Self-Regulation of Emotions


When most people think of yoga they think of physical postures or meditation. These are in fact aspects of yoga; however, yoga also goes beyond the traditional thoughts of poses and meditation. It is a tool that can foster positive attitudes, healthy body awareness, respect for self and others, strength in relationships, and the focus to succeed in any goal. 

Historically, yoga brings with it principles for living that are aimed at bringing peace to ourselves, our relationships with others, as well as our communities. Yoga It Up’s school programming is designed to bring awareness to these aspects of yoga as they relate to a child’s life today. As such, themes covered include:


  • Compassion: avoiding judgment and negative interactions
  • Truthfulness: integrity of our words and actions
  • Non-stealing: respect of others’ space and time; selfishness
  • Controlling the senses: mindfulness with eating, media and relationships
  • Moderation: practice of conservation
  • Cleanliness: self-care on the inside and out, including positive thinking
  • Contentment: gratitude and responsibility for your own experience
  • Self-discipline: commitment, perseverance, mindful actions
  • Self-study: compassion for self; being your inner scientist
  • Connection: connecting with others, our community and nature


All programs include complimentary materials to reinforce tools learned through our programs! 


We provide all equipment necessary for programming, all we ask is for use of a multipurpose 

room or gym. We also provide a letter that can be supplied to parents for information.
