HOPE Sheds Light is partnering with Yoga University NJ to bring you Youth Yoga. Yoga University’s C.O.R.E program was designed to empower students to learn and thrive in a supportive climate. We offer fun and meaningful opportunities to grow, stay motivated, stay healthy, and above all, to feel valued!
Concentrate: Pay attention in the present moment.
Observe: Breathe and move efficiently to improve understanding of body and mind and how to care for them.
Realize: build skills in self-management, communication, coping, and social interaction.
Empower: create the conditions to realize goals and aspirations.
Each week we will gain breath awareness, practice basic yoga postures, play games, learn relaxation techniques, and establish goals to help us stay focused and happy! Yoga University hopes that students of all ages take time every day to concentrate, observe, realize and empower. Set the COREnerstones for your success. You are you, and you are amazing!
