Our Mission and Vision:
The Y.O.G.A. Foundation or the Youth Obtaining Great Achievements Foundation, a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, proudly offers free, quality yoga services for children in schools nationwide and globally! Our program meets and exceeds U.S. national standards for quality Physical Education. Recognizing the effects of the obesity epidemic on children and the alarming lack of funding for physical education in public and charter schools, we have developed an easy to implement and tremendously beneficial model to keep kids active and healthy.
World Y.O.G.A. Project, which is our core program, focuses on reaching children throughout the United States and worldwide, bringing the practice of yoga to their schools. By doing so, we expect to see substantial benefits to the students, teachers, and schools as a whole.
In addition to the multitude of physical benefits, students will experience greater awareness of their bodies and minds, increased compassion for themselves and others, improved self-confidence and self-control, and a greater ability to be focused on the present moment and the task or situation at hand. The benefits will extend beyond the individual students, into the classroom and enitre school, and then out into the world.
