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., and in cooperation with prAna. We are honored to work with private and public schools of all levels. 

In addition to classes, our foundational offerings include weekend Yoga Trainings for teachers, parents and anyone who works with youth, along with research-based programs in schools. Our award-winning bilingual resources are a perfect addition for your transformative home and classroom. 

Our online resource site, The OHMazing® Way, provides support for bringing yoga and mindfulness into your daily life on and off the yoga mat. We also support aspiring kids yoga teachers with our Licensee program.

Our first DVD, The Story of Ganesha, won a Parents’ Choice Award in addition to being named a 2010 Dr. Toy Best Pick for Children!

We are filled with gratitude to announce the release of our second DVD, Vishnu’s OHMazing® Journeys, created in partnership with the Crow Museum 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!

This became increasingly important as she had to deal with her own stress and overwhelming life as a single mother of three kids, and coach Jordan to “grow into” the way her body works.
