Mission Statement

RISE empowers adolescents to be agents of change in the world. Through the physical practice of yoga, wellness education, and community building, students develop inner resources to respond to life’s challenges in constructive ways.

Description

RISE brings yoga and wellness education to schools and youth organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area to empower students to lead healthy lifestyles and respond to life’s challenges in constructive ways.

Our innovative curriculum has shown to increase attendance and retention rates, improve academic achievement, and help students manage stress. The curriculum incorporates physical exercise, breath work, and activities that foster social and emotional learning. Stress management techniques and mindfulness exercises are an integral part of each class, so students can lead healthier, happier, resilient lives.
