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.
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.
Classroom & Clinic Tested to Work in Any Setting & with All Ages & Populations.

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.
Nurturing Youth into Happy, Healthy, Successful Adults
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.
Yoga Calm is especially effective for special needs, including ADHD, autism spectrum disorders (ASD), and behavior and mental health issues. Originally developed in behavior classrooms, it readily provides the foundation for trauma-informed practices, as well.
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!
