Boys & Girls Club of Santa Monica

In January of 2013, Boys & Girls Club of Santa Monica started their first ever yoga program at 3 of their Santa Monica sites. The youth there have been learning basic yoga asanas, pranayama, and each class has been focused around a centering thought, such as gratitude.

Throughout the course, teachers are conducting tests to determine stress levels and self-esteem. So far the kids are loving the weekly yoga classes - the peace and balance they are feeling is evident in the photos below. Manduka was happy to supply yoga mats for classes.
