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

There are many amazing kid-based yoga trainings out there that facilitate play-based kids yoga programming, but what makes us unique is our focus on developing life skills for emotional and mental well-being in children and youth 3-18 years and their schools - and showing you how to do it! We pride ourselves on providing programming that serves as a community resource for mental health and overall emotional health, specific to the needs of children, youth and families. Classes are not simply modified adult yoga classes, nor are they the same as recreational yoga for kids that are designed to focus on the playful components of yoga for children. Through our programs children and youth can feel supported and guided in their needs while dealing with challenges faced in their everyday lives, such as anxiety, depression, poor body image, bullying, environmental stressors, lack of self worth or other special needs.


Learn our unique program models that are rooted in evidence-based tools from the fields of Social and Emotional Learning, Positive Psychology, Mindfulness and Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience. Learn how to deliver age-appropriate and trauma-sensitive yoga to children and youth, mindfulness activities, tools of positive psychology and foundations in social-emotional learning within your own profession, at home, in the classroom or through dedicated yoga classes.
