This project will enable Y.O.G.A. for Youth to continue after school programing in the Orange County School District in North Carolina. We've been asked be an ongoing part of their after school "After 3" programs in the current seven schools we serve, and introduce yoga into their Partnership Academy alternative high school program. A 2010 study (led by Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, PhD of Harvard University) has shown Academic Performance Index (API) growth in schools participating our program.


Y.O.G.A. for Youth is committed to alleviating violence, vandalism, substance abuse, obesity, eating disorders, teen pregnancy, sexual assault, bullying, suicide, poor grades, low self esteem 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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
