Since 2006, our volunteers have taught more than 950 YoKid programs, introducing yoga and mindfulness to more than 7,600 children and youth in the Greater DC Area.

Children and youth often come to YoKid with experiences of stress, trauma, insecurity, violence and/or poverty. These stressful experiences leave children and youth anxious and vulnerable and can compromise their ability to meet the academic, physical, emotional, and social demands of school.

Using yoga and mindfulness techniques, we teach students to become self-aware, manage their stress, positively develop character traits and ultimately become Empowered, Resilient, Engaged, and Mindful Children and Youth who are connected to themselves, school, and the world around them.
