A Cleveland-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to providing access to yoga and mindfulness programming for children and families in underserved schools and community organizations.
ZENworks Yoga builds FREE yoga and mindfulness programs with these underserved communities in mind. Many of the students we work with do not have a healthy outlet for anxiety or trauma. Our instructors visit the same schools each week and build a relationship with students and their teachers. Through this relationship, we teach children from Pre-K through high school healthy ways to manage their stress. More than 90 percent of the students in our programs report that yoga has helped them. Also important, the majority of the school teachers from our programs report that their students benefit from yoga and that they have actually gained back academic time.
Every year, ZENworks Yoga selects 20 underserved schools in the Cleveland area to receive free yoga and mindfulness programming. Since founded in 2013, ZENworks Yoga has brought zen to over 5,500 children in underserved schools and community organizations at no cost.
