About Us

Evidence-based Yoga Program for Intervention and Youth Development

Yoga classes for FUN, FITNESS and LIFE SKILLS building! Youth practice yoga and mindfulness meditations for empowerment. Learn life skills to help manage stress, anxiety & emotions, develop strength, and flexibility, in the body, mind, and heart.

We are a sports-based youth development non-profit that shares the tools of meditation and yoga with youth involved with or impacted by the carceral system in the Greater New Orleans area. We recognize that New Orlean's youth face high rates of poverty, trauma, and violence, all of which are associated with a greater likelihood of involvement with the carceral system. We nurture youths’ physical and mental health, resilience and self-esteem to cultivate young leaders and intervene in and disrupt the cycle of incarceration.
