Integrating Yoga for kids, mindfulness, movement and social/emotional learning
into your work with children and teens.


Yoga is more than just poses. And so is Yoga Calm.

  • It’s a curriculum – an innovative fusion of physical yoga, social-emotional learning (SEL) activities, counseling techniques and mindfulness practice.

  • It’s a community – of teachers, counselors, health professionals and families who want to provide kids with the means to grow into happy, healthy, successful adults.

  • It’s a calling – to meet the needs of the whole child through physical, emotional and cognitive fitness.

Developed from more than 30 years’ experience in education, counseling and yoga practice, Yoga Calm helps children and teens develop emotional resiliency, leadership and communication skills, trust and empathy, focus and self-control. It’s especially effective for special needs, including ADHD, autism spectrum disorders (ASD), and behavior and mental health issues.

The physical yoga is safe for and accessible to all populations. Individual activities can be taught by anyone, in any environment – in as little as 5 minutes!

Originally developed for classroom use, Yoga Calm is now used in a wide variety of clinical and therapeutic settings, including the Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.

More than 6000 teachers, counselors, nurses and therapists from around the world have attended our yoga teacher trainings and use what they’ve learned to help more than 40,000 kids each day. We offer both traditional and online yoga courses and certification in kids’ yoga, as well as yoga for adults (RYT-200, yoga for seniors).

We invite you to join the circle of parents and professionals already sharing Yoga Calm. Learn how to become a yoga instructor with us.

Practical Mindfulness: Gratitude


When people talk about mindfulness, you often hear them talk about gratitude, too. After all, you can’t really practice gratitude without it. For gratitude is more than just saying “thanks.” It’s recognizing what we value about an action or person or thing, and how we are enriched by the experience. It’s an act of honoring Read More

Were you, too, a little disconcerted to see Christmas swag going up well before Halloween this year? Yet that makes it even a little cooler to see more major retailers stepping up to say, “No, we’re not opening early for Black Friday. We’re staying closed all Thanksgiving so our employees can celebrate the day with Read More
