Mission Statement:
To provide on-site enrichment programming for schools, childcare centers and youth organizations so that ALL children can have access to yoga & mindfulness

Youth Statistics:

  •  Over 50% of U.S children have experienced at least one serious trauma (known as ACEs- Adverse Childhood Experiences)

  • 16 million children live at or below the poverty level (6 million under age 6)

  • 30% of inner city students have witnessed a stabbing or shooting

  • As many as 2.5 million youth per year experience homelessness

  • 1 out of every 4 children in school has been exposed to a traumatic event

  • Approx. 2 out of 3 children have been exposed to violence; 1 in 6 report 6+ exposures to violence

  • Over the last 10 years, the proportion of pediatric ER visits for mental health reasons has almost doubled, including a 5-fold increase in suicide-related visits.

  • By 2019, approximately 1 in 5 American children experienced mental illness every year, with only half of them receiving the necessary treatment

  • In 2021, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) declared a national emergency in children’s mental health, citing the serious toll of the COVID-19 pandemic on top of existing challenges. 

  • Youth at greatest risk for mental illness include children and adolescents living in low-income households, youth with disabilities and minorities who often experience disparities in accessible mental health treatment, with 13% of children from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds receiving mental health services compared to 31% of their non-minority peers. 

  • Research indicates that youth living with intellectual and developmental disability (IDD) experience exposure to trauma at a higher rate than their non-disabled peers.  


Our youth are suffering now more than ever.
 Chronic stress & trauma can have a devastating impact on a child's mental, physical, emotional & social development, often leading to poor health, academic failure, mental health issues, disciplinary suspension & substance abuse. But...there's hope! 

Research has proven the following benefits of mindfulness practices for children:
  • stress reduction
  • emotional self-regulation
  • improved academic performance
  • improved focus & higher level brain function
  • lowered anxiety & improved mood
  • improved classroom behavior,
  • increased self-esteem and awareness
  • improved adult/peer relationship
  •  an overall sense of calm, safety & resiliency 
YOGA-2-GO's  evidence-based enrichment programs equip children with the support, tools & inner resources needed to succeed both personally & academically!
 We provide yoga & mindfulness classes to schools, childcare centers, and youth organizations,  offering fun, educational, health-promoting services to youth of all ages..
