Engaging youth in
can promote positive, powerful social change in countless art forms, including dance, music, graphic art, and more. Young people can change the world in a lot of ways through the Arts.
Art is a creative journey in which we expose our spirit to the world.
Yoga teaches acceptance and tolerance of others. By practicing yoga, youth learn early in life that all living beings are to be cherished and respected as they are, thus helping to create more peaceful local communities and a more peaceful world in our future.
Meditation is the art of finding ourselves. It guides us to a more aware, centered and open place where we can be free of past conditioning and can connect with our innate self-confidence. Youth become calmer, happier and healthier.
Yoga practice calms the inner emotions, while bringing balance to the body, mind and soul, sparking creative artistic expression.
This includes all of The Arts:
literature-poetry, drama, story...
the performing arts

The more you practice, the better you get, but also the more you experiment, trust and step out of your comfort zone, the better the result.
Opening the door for creative energy to flow and grow.
