This project will bring prenatal yoga classes to teens at Thomas Riley High School, located in Watts, California. Our program will help these young girls effectively manage the challenges that come along with giving birth to a child, as a teen and give them additional tools to help them maintain focus on their school work and improve their grades.
Our program addresses the challenges that come along with teen pregnancy, sexual assault, bullying, suicide, poor grades and other self defeating behaviors that are prevalent among today's youth.
Our curriculum addresses major components associated with diminishing fear, the root cause of anger, and increasing a belief in one's own greatness. We provide youth with tools for self-discovery that foster hope, discipline and respect for self, others and community.
Y.O.G.A. for Youth has been teaching yoga techniques and principles to kids for over sixteen years. In that time, the organization has served over eighteen thousand youth, supporting the management of health, wellness, grief, anxiety, stress, violence, and other symptoms associated with anger that prevent brilliant little minds from realizing their full potential.
