YoKid...Stretch Your Limits
YoKid is a non-profit that provides instruction in yoga for kids & teens. While youth in today’s complex urban environments face ever-increasing challenges, there are greater levels of stress and obesity among kids & teens living in poverty. YoKid was created to help kids & teens confront these challenges by increasing their self-awareness, concentration levels and physical activity through yoga.
Our goal is that, by providing children, particularly those living in poverty, with the benefits of practicing yoga from a young age, we will equip them with techniques that can help them better cope with stress, decrease their likelihood of obesity, and improve their general understanding of how to care for themselves both mentally and physically throughout childhood and into adulthood.
