We are grateful to offer our Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® Digital School featuring MOSST! The MOSST (Mindful and OHMazing® Strategies for Students and Teachers) curriculum supports the implementation and integration of a community-wide skill set of research-based and trauma-informed Mindfulness life-skills. These life-skills include tools and strategies such as intentional breathing, focused attention on thoughts and sensations, and movement routines that create compassionate self-regulation of emotions and energy levels.
In addition to classes for kids and families offered in various cities and states, we have served as a Registered Children’s Yoga School (RCYS) for over a decade presenting participants the choice to become a YYY instructor or earn the internationally renowned Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (RCYT) credential.

About Yogiños Founder, Dr. Beth Reese
When Dr. Beth Reese’s then 6-year-old daughter started hurling chairs at her in a busy airport, she knew something was up. Soon after, she learned that her daughter had sensory processing disorder, considered by many to be a spectrum disorder. Realizing that what Beth was learning on her yoga mat could help her daughter “off the mat”, she founded Yogiños: Yoga for Youth® in 2008. Since then she has authored award-winning, bilingual resources including an online curriculum for kids, teachers, parents, and families. She leads trainings, professional development workshops, and The OHMazing® Way Podcast for individuals, teachers, schools, and museums.
