    Worldwide, 20.5% of youths are struggling with anxiety symptoms,* and yoga has the potential to help. Join us to learn how many of the skills we teach can help kids navigate the mind and body's response to stress.

    *“About 11.6% of kids had anxiety in 2012, up 20% from 2007. But during the pandemic, those numbers nearly doubled, such that 20.5% of youth worldwide now struggle with anxiety symptoms'' (American Psychological Association, Oct 2022).

    11:00am–12:00pm ET
    Join us for a live watch part of the groundbreaking documentary The Uncommon Yogi: A History of Blacks and Yoga in the U.S. We will be joined by documentary creator and the Executive Director and co-founder of the Black Yoga Teachers Alliance, Jana Long.

    Her film traces the historical roots of yoga practice in black communities in the U.S. and highlights some of the yoga teachers who have emerged from the early 1920s into the 21st century. It also dives deep into the influence Black individuals and communities have on the practice, and stories that are far too often left out of yoga education and conversation.

    After the screening, Jana will host a live Q+A, and attendees will receive helpful resources and guidance on how to integrate this important information into their yoga teachings.
