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.

Recently, I visited a friend’s 120 acre farm with our granddaughter. It was a beautiful day, and it was wonderful to see Anna run around outside with so much freedom and joy. But I have to admit that her freedom stirred some worry for me. The rope swing she was playing on – was it Read More
