Founded in 2002, by Gail Silver, Yoga Child provides school-based yoga and mindfulness programs to Philadelphia area schools and educators. Our award-winning curriculum of yoga and mindfulness activities for students and teachers has been an integral part of the school and after school curricula in hundreds of area schools, reaching thousands of students.
You might recognize Yoga Child as the Washington Square West Yoga Studio that provided adult, family and prenatal yoga to Philadelphia for over a decade. Closing our physical doors has (as we had hoped) enabled Yoga Child to focus solely on our school-based programming and training, opening new doors for school-based programming throughout the city. A recent initiative includes Kids in Care for children in foster care and The School Mindfulness Project, an emerging non-profit organization founded by Gail Silver.
Today, our registered children’s Yoga School continues to provide our award-winning yoga and mindfulness curriculum to area students, and yoga & mindfulness trainings to schoolteachers, administrators clinicians and aspiring yoga instructors. Yoga and mindfulness trainings are offered in-school for school staff, and at yoga centers and nationwide through educator conferences.
If you would like to learn more or would like help determining the best way to integrate yoga & mindfulness into your school or youth program, please download a brochure, contact us or call Gail Silver at 215-500-0498 for a complimentary phone consult.
