Our Team

Mental health is the next pandemic that will ripple out for years to come. Teaching adults and kids to take care of their health and wellness is as important as learning to read and write. Yoga Ed. is uniquely positioned to address this crisis now with trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness tools that have been studied and proven to work.

Yoga Ed. offers evidence-based training, classes, and resources proven to improve physical, mental, emotional, and social health.

21 years, 46 countries, 12,000+ schools, 79,000+ educators, 15M+ students to date.

Mental Health is the Next Pandemic.

A mental health crisis is emerging. Studies show 25% of isolated children and adults experience PTSD (Sprang & Silman, 2013) and 68% of parents and caregivers report an increase in stress (Minn & Hau, 2020). A steep increase in mental health-related ER visits among kids—a 24% increase in 5-11 year olds and 31% in 12-17 year olds—point to the growing trauma and challenges they’re facing during these formative years (CDC, 2020).

COVID-19 will pass with time, but the mental health effects for children, teens, and adults are likely to ripple out for years to come. The pandemic has only exposed and exacerbated existing mental health challenges that were on the rise. Grown-ups are now grappling with how to help the children and teens in their lives cope with the psychological effects of the pandemic including stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Supporting the physical & mental health of communities worldwide since 1999.

For 20 years, Yoga Ed. has supported adults who work with youth – such as educators, healthcare professionals, and caregivers – with trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness resources to improve physical and mental health outcomes across all ages. 5 years ago, we brought all of our programs online. 

During the pandemic, educators and mental health professionals worldwide have turned to Yoga Ed. as a trusted place of community, resource, and support. 

Online programs that meet people where they're at.

Yoga Ed. understands that some people want to learn how to teach yoga themselves, and others are looking for an 'out of the box solution.' We address both these markets by offering a range of products broken into two categories.

Option #1: Do It Yourself
Online trainings that teach people how to teach yoga & mindfulness to children at their own pace from the comfort of home. Our online training courses give people the confidence and skill set to share the benefits of yoga with kids in their lives.

✓ 100% online, flexible training courses over 6-8 weeks
✓ Robust course material, including engaging video lectures, evidence-based curriculum, 24+ premade lesson plans that meet national PE & health standards
✓ Live weekly check-ins with experienced course instructors to dive into the weekly material and answer student questions
✓ Streamable on all devices: laptop, tablet, phone

Option #2: We Do It For You
On-demand access to fun, engaging classes that teach children (and adults!) the basics of yoga and mindfulness. Through our classes, kids do breathing exercises, yoga poses, games, visualizations, and relaxation activities. 

✓ 400+ classes available on-demand, new classes added regularly.
✓ Classes are 3 – 30 minutes long
✓ Suitable for all ages (ages 3 to 18+, parents and teachers)
✓ Meets national standards, includes lesson plans and assessments
✓ Streamable on all devices: laptop, tablet, phone

Backed by Science.

Science has been an integral part of Yoga Ed. programs since day one. We recognize that the only way to know if we are achieving our goals of sustainably improving the health and wellness of children, teens, and adults is to measure it. That's where the evidence comes in.

Studies conducted by Harvard, Tulane, and the California State University of Fullerton have found that Yoga Ed. programs can improve physical, mental, emotional, and social health for all ages.
