Description of Organization
Center of Movement was a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching essential life skills to under-served communities through the art of yoga. They provided free to low-cost weekly yoga and mindfulness classes to at-risk children, schoolteachers, teen parents and their babies, seniors, and community classes in the rural community of Rio Vista. Established in 2002, they began by offering a single children’s yoga class to a multi-program organization working across three rural counties in Northern California. The Yes Project is a yoga and mindfulness program designed to elevate self-awareness and self-esteem of children. The curriculum provides children and their teachers with a holistic approach to self-care by integrating yoga and mindfulness exercises, council practice, team-work oriented games, partner poses, art projects, and self-reflection writing.
In 2010, a grant in the amount of $1,500 was awarded to support the Center of Movement’s YES Project (Yoga Education for Schools).
