About this program

Healthy Minds Canada and Roots & Shoots Youth and Family Yoga have joined up to create an after-school or in-school yoga program in the Greater Toronto Area.

All programs will be lead by a Registered Yoga Teacher with a specialty in Children’s Yoga.

Most programs will include 12 half-hour long classes that have been specially geared to teens ages 13-17 and incorporate activities to create self-awareness, self-respect and appreciation for others, however, we are happy to discuss adapting the program in special circumstances.

If you would like to learn more about bringing this program to your school, please contact Katie at
[email protected] and put YOGA in the subject line.
