Check out our SoYY @ Voices Video below for a sneak peak at our successes in building a school-wide wellness initiative since the 2015-16 school year. 

Think of the moment, experience, or environment in your youth in which you didn't feel whole, but rather felt like you were broken, inadequate, or that you didn't matter.

What if we could interrupt that moment or experience by allowing us all (youth, families, and service providers alike) to tap into our own strengths, to heal, and to show up as our whole selves.

That's what Spirit of Youth Yoga is about: being our whole selves and moving through the world from that place of wholeness. Whole Selves, Whole Communities. 

Spirit of Youth Yoga (SoYY) empowers youth and their caregivers to transform inner strengths into community strengths through yoga, social-emotional learning, and mindful leadership development.
