Yoga Youth Movement


The focus of the Yoga Youth Movements is bringing together the teachings of Yoga with facing the challenges of daily teenager life. The YYM presents the principles and techniques of yoga as an effective means for supporting teenagers in navigating the challenges of this tumultuous and transformational time in their lives. In addition, a regular yoga practice from a young age acts as a preventative medicine - We must start to rely on yoga versus medication as a means to perfect health.

One goal of the Yoga Youth Movement is to target promising yoga youth athletes in the 2015 USA Yoga & IYSF championships. USA Yoga believes that the practice of yoga and Yoga Asana is beneficial for the physical and mental health of all practitioners - children, teens, adults and seniors. Increased awareness of the sport of Yoga Asana will encourage existing practitioners to sharpen their skills through training, dedication, and devotion to the sport, and will inspire new practitioners to begin a practice which leads to a healthier and happier life.
