Headstand is an innovative nonprofit dedicated to empowering students in economically disadvantaged communities through the practice of yoga. Headstand enhances students’ capacity for academic learning and promotes healthy social and emotional wellbeing.

Founded in 2008 by a former school teacher and yoga instructor, Katherine Priore, Headstand offers a unique curriculum designed in collaboration with experts in the fields of education, yoga, health, and wellness. The Headstand curriculum is research-based and blends yoga exercises with integrated educational theory and social and emotional learning.

Headstand classes include stretching, breathing, and awareness exercises to help students let go of anxiety and worry. After a Headstand class, students are physically, mentally, and emotionally better prepared to learn. Classes help students develop greater self-awareness and enable them to choose new behaviors for better personal balance and academic achievement.

Headstand programs are currently operating in schools in the San Francisco Bay Area and Houston with the use of donated Manduka mats!
