What We Do

We provide free yoga classes, mentorship opportunities, and service trips to underserved youth.  Our programming is rooted in the basic truths espoused by ancient yogis and practiced by yoga teachers today.  Our method is also strongly influenced by the latest research and evidence based practices for serving youth in out of school programming.  These well researched theories include resilience, asset-building and strength based practice.

Every yoga class in the curriculum includes a theme, meditation, asana, and reflection.

Every project is evaluated through a pre- and post- test with the students.  In some cases, parents and/or teachers also participate in the testing to gain further evidence of the effectiveness of SYP programming.
