Yoga and youth

I am beyond excited about today! Through our life skills program, several of our youth having been attending weekly yoga classes at YYOGA (thank you so much YYOGA). I have been dying to talk to the youth to see how they are enjoying yoga but obviously I can’t go and "observe" a class. As one who regularly practices, it occurred to me that I should just go with them to a class and chat to them about it afterwards. So today at 2:30 I am power class bound with staff member Tania and a some youth yogis.  Next week I will have an article about the yoga practice and hopefully some pictures.

If you want to learn more about how yoga enriches the lives of street youth, you must check out this video about Street Yoga, an amazing organization in Portland that provides free yoga so homeless and at-risk youth.
