Kids & teens living in today’s complex environment face ever-increasing challenges, including rising levels of stress and obesity. These challenges are even more pronounced in under-served communities. YoKid was created to help kids & teens confront these challenges by increasing their self-awareness, concentration levels, and physical activity through yoga.
YoKid has facilitated over 4,620 kid’s yoga classes in the Greater DC Area, introducing yoga to more than 2,000 kids & teens. Currently, we maintain a database of 114 volunteer teachers and classroom assistants to facilitate the program. Since 2006, we have more than doubled our number of programs to reach more deserving youth than we had ever anticipated.
Studies report that kids & teens who participate in yoga have been shown to have lower levels of anger. They are more relaxed and emotionally balanced, better able to focus and physically more adept-all of which will benefit them physically, academically, socially, and emotionally. They learn to better regulate their reactions to peers and adults and they are better able to concentrate.
