We're are partnering with No Bullying Campaign with the ADL - No Place for Hate. We have been confirmed as a No Place for Hate certified studio. We will be using the Mindup curriculum created by Goldie Hawn and we are partnering with local entities. Our hope is to create a nurturing environment for children to learn yoga techniques both on and off the mat. We will also be establishing a club at each school that will meet monthly in conjunction with the weekly after school yoga classes.
