Educating Heart, Mind, & Body
Yoga Calm is a one-of-a-kind integration to enrich your work with children and teens.
Giving Kids The Tools They Need to Succeed
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.
Why Yoga Calm?
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.
Nurturing 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!
Yoga Calm is also used in a wide variety of clinical and therapeutic settings across the US and beyond, including the Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.
