Words from our participants
"Yoga has given them a common source of interest allowing them to practice and improve their social skills and build friendships they did not have before."
MA MFT, SDUSD Mental Health Support Services (MHSS)
"Through the practice of yoga, meditation, and breathing the students have been given another tool to help them cope with poverty, violence, drug use, gang activity and all the other pressures of a teenage life."
San Marcos juvenile Court appointed High School
"A program that students were once very skeptic about has become a much valued and pursued program by many Torch students. It is evident that the program has enriched the lives of participating students through yoga."
