We aim to…

To empower our youth with mindfulness tools to give them the means to create armor against hate, negative influences and external pressure from others. Our 6 week learning program is about how yoga improves focus, strengthens the body, builds confidence and self awareness, regulates the nervous system and calms the mind, with current research based methods.

We Believe

Children who are growing up in our urban areas are subjected to numerous types of trauma from personal to systematic and it has created a community of broken links. When we acknowledge trauma in the early developmental stages of life, we give the gift of healing. There are numerous ways to support healing our children whom are confronted with traumatic events on a day to day basis.


Mindfulness generates self-regulation, thoughtful choices, focused actions and improved self-confidence.  They are in control of their own personal experience and become less reactionary. Looking at the big picture, it has the potential to be a therapeutic replacement for punishment.
