Y.O.G.A. for Youth – North Carolina

Y.O.G.A. for Youth North Carolina

Y.O.G.A. for Youth North Carolina has been a satellite branch of Y.O.G.A., Inc. for thirteen years, reaching over 6,000 young people through programming in schools, community centers, and collaborations with other nonprofits in Durham, Orange, Wake, Chatham and Buncombe counties.

In the 2012-13 academic year, Y.O.G.A. for Youth offered yoga classes in seven middle school after-school programs in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and Orange County School districts. In 2013-14, Y4Y offered a year-long programming in two STEM-designated schools and 10-week programming in the other five schools.

In 2019, Yoga for Youth started working with RN Harris elementary school, located in Durham. R.N. Harris is a Title I school in the Durham Public School system, where 99% of its students receive either free or reduced lunch. In 2019, 5 R.N. Harris Elementary teachers were trained through the Y.O.G.A. for Youth Teacher Training in order to offer daily yoga to their students in the classroom. Y.O.G.A. for Youth and R.N. Harris faculty, staff and students are committed towards sustaining this practice and instilling it as a key element of their community.

Virtual Yoga Classes

Y.O.G.A. for Youth North Carolina continues to serve our young people and their families amidst the challenges of COVID-19 by offering donation-based virtual yoga classes to children and families. The classes help families to stay active at home, enhance communication skills, and work through challenging emotions that may surface during this time.
