The Yoga Health Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization registered in the State of California with a mission to promote preventive health care and to inspire a healthy lifestyle.
We are dedicated to inspire the Nation to create a healthy lifestyle through prevention and will achieve this goal through national and community awareness campaigns and educational programs reaching especially at-risk children and adults.
The Yoga Health Foundation is coordinating National Yoga Month September (free yoga classes and events at over 1,500 locations) and Yoga-Recess™ in Schools (bringing yoga-based health and fitness education into classrooms).
Yoga-Recess in Schools
Yoga-Recess in Schools is a national campaign and platform to bring yoga-based health education into classroom. With our unique and cost-conscious model we aim to reverse the dangerous trend of child obesity and chronic illnesses.
Considering the current budget crisis and cuts in funding especially for physical education in schools, it is more important than ever to bring affordable health and fitness education and exercise into class rooms. Yoga-Recess™ offers a unique and cost-conscious solution for combating obesity and chronic illnesses by encouraging mind body fitness programming and health education in pre-schools, day care centers, elementary schools, high schools, after-school programs, community centers and youth organizations.
Our main strategy is to send Yoga-Recess DVDs for FREE to school teachers and to offer online trainings for school teachers.
Yoga-Recess partners are Shanti Generation (Abby Wills), Yoga Playground (Leah Kalish and Lisa Detamore) and Updogdowndog Yoga (Jules Hogan) and Playful Planet Storyland Yoga.
