Yoga 4 The Kidz

I wish there were more health professionals that came to my school to teach us how to manage our stress better when I was a kid. After completing my yoga teacher training, I committed myself to provide sessions for those who didn't have the access or finances.

Connecting with LAUSD, I was given a space at Wisdom Elementary School in South Central to teach students yoga, meditation and other mindfulness techniques. I've been teaching at the school for about 3 years now and am hoping to expand throughout Los Angeles, America and eventually the world. The Dalai Lama said if every kid meditated at age 8, we could eliminate a generation of mindless violence. Let's prove that theory right! Help make it happen today. Thank you!

Frequently Asked...

WHO IS IT FOR?

The students at Wisdom Elementary School in South Central and

Leland Street Global Awareness Magnet in San Pedro

WHAT IS BEING PROVIDED?

 Lessons in yoga and meditation, healthy snacks and personal yoga equipment

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

Since I am doing this alone (for now) and volunteers entirely out of pocket, your contributions help reimburse expenses for travel and providing treats/gifts for the kids. Your contributions also help the paperwork process to make this become a 501C(3) Registered Non-Profit to help bring on more team members and expand to other schools.

WHEN DOES THIS TAKE PLACE?

For now, I teach 2 classes twice a month, but the goal is to visit schools on a weekly basis.

Operating during the school year and 4 lessons over Summer Vacation.

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?

I truly believe every child deserves the tools to relax. Kids can make regrettable decisions when they feel overwhelmed with emotions and if it's not addressed early, irate reactions can carry into adulthood. I know this from personal experience and although I am still growing in my own mindfulness journey, I do know how much yoga and meditation saved me in some of my most stressful situations. My hope is to create more kindness and self awareness so that school school becomes a safe place and not one of stress.

HOW ARE YOU GOING TO EXPAND?

With your assistance & the power of connection, we gain more volunteers, expand to more schools and solidify all necessary paperwork to keep the program running.
