More about YB:
Yogi Beans has a mission to honor the innate energies of children’s bodies, minds and hearts through yoga.
Yogi Beans was formed in 2010 and since then they’ve built an educational and fun program offering yoga to kids ages 2-10, and even adapting their syllabus to meet the needs of children in over 30 private and public schools throughout New York City, Westchester, New Jersey, and Los Angeles. Their teaching is designed to “develop children’s abilities to focus (attention), stand up straight (posture), move their limbs with control (coordination) and grace (flexibility), and find inner strength (self–confidence).” Read more about YB and their specialized TT program here.
