Mountain Movement: The Design, Implementation, & Evaluation
of a Youth Yoga Program
Mountain Movement is a youth yoga program designed to introduce children to the sustainable practice of yoga as well as convey the ability to recognize stress and utilize relaxation techniques. Children face a number of challenges throughout their daily lives. These challenges, ranging from academic pressures to bullying, can create stresses with negative impacts. Yoga is an activity that can provide children with tools and methods to better deal with and cope with these challenges. Mountain Movement has demonstrated that a youth yoga program can favorable impact children while remaining simple to implement and requiring minimal logistic support.
