Giving Kids the Tools They Need to Succeed.

There are lots of yoga programs for kids. There are lots of programs that aim to bring mindfulness to the classroom. There are lots of programs that support social-emotional learning.

Only Yoga Calm brings together all three in a dynamic way, addressing the needs of the whole child.


Supports health and fitness. Improves cognition and academic achievement. Nurtures self-regulation and mindfulness.


Develops focus and emotional self-regulation. Promotes cognitive flexibility. Reduces stress.

Social-Emotional Learning

Fosters empathy, communication, and community-building. Enhances creativity and imagination.

Building Resilience

You want your kids to become their own best selves – academically, physically, socially, emotionally. You want them to be resilient in a constantly changing, ever more challenging world. You want them to be happy, healthy, and whole.

Yoga Calm can give them the tools they need to succeed.

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.

Even teaching my first lesson, I felt the relationship with my students change, and grow, for the better. There was a heightened sense of respect for each other, better concentration, more focus, and a pervasive happiness and calm that spread through our classroom. Until Yoga Calm, I’d never had such success!

Yoga Calm is the most results-producing approach I have used in  35+ years as an Occupational Therapist – and a great way to provide Response To Intervention (RTI) support. Students now know what to do with the messages their body is sending  them and learn strategies to maximize academic achievement.

Yoga for kids is not just for balance, coordination and core strength. It helps them improve regulating their emotional states as well. Whether feeling hyper in a calm environment or feeling anxious before a test the skills they learn in yoga help to calm their mind and body.

Yoga Calm’s body-based approach to emotional regulation has been a fabulous addition to our CBT and DBT (cognitive) treatment approaches. Our adolescents have learned how to listen to their bodies as part of the recovery processes.

Presence & Intent in a Virtual World

One thing that saddened me during my years as a school counselor was how many students carried around negative stories about the world. They believed the world was full of bad guys; that people were out to get them. They also felt bad about themselves. Often, they...

The 6th grade students at the Outdoor School were looking at the results of water samples they had just taken when a great blue heron landed in a tree above our heads. All the children turned to gaze at it, their eyes huge with excitement. What is that? they wanted to...
