More about Y.O.G.A. for Youth:
Y.O.G.A. for Youth is one of the oldest youth yoga programs in the country. Founded as a 501(c) 3 nonprofit in the mid 90’s in Los Angeles in an effort to dismantle the school to prison pipeline and to uplift the brilliance of young people, it has spread all over the country, with North Carolinians founding a chapter in 2007.
YO.G.A. for Youth North Carolina has served over 6,000 youth in Durham, Orange, Wake, Chatham and Buncombe counties, with multi-year partnerships including Bull City Fit, Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, the Durham Arts Council’s CAPS Program, and Justice Theater Project’s summer camps.
The Y.O.G.A. for Youth curriculum is a comprehensive youth development program based in ancient yogic techniques to foster confident and emotionally stable young people with higher levels of scholastic aptitude and expanded behavioral management skills.
