Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® is an OHMazing® interdisciplinary curriculum in English, Spanish, and Sanskrit. We weave together the 8 Limbs of yoga with original art, music, games, stories, and other sensory-integrated activities to promote flexibility, strength, balance, collaboration, civic and social responsibility, mindfulness, nutrition, and wellness both on and off the yoga mat.
Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® is endorsed by Andrew Weil, M.D., in partnership with the Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas, and in cooperation with prAna. Our DVDs are available here and also distributed by Lotus Shop at the Crow Collection of Asian Art, White Swan Music, AVCafe, and numerous private yoga studios.
We are filled with gratitude to announce the release of our second DVD, Vishnu's OHMazing® Journeys, created in partnership with the Crow Collection of Asian Art!
Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® sprouted in 2008 in Corpus Christi, Texas, and currently is taking root in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, the Baltimore-Washington area, Utah, Colorado with expansion plans underway for California, New Mexico and beyond!
In addition to classes, our foundational offerings include Yoga Trainings for adults wishing to start or expand existing yoga programs to include youth. Within our YES (Yogiños Empowers Students) program we offer workshops to teachers, administrators, and other professionals who work with youth through schools, museums and resorts. Our Membership program enables individuals, businesses and organizations to open your own Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® business or expand your existing client base to include families and youth with an OHMazing® program exercising body, mind, and heart--through art!
