Participants at Discover U Summer Camp Yoga Program are encouraged to move toward more sustainable means of communication, self-confidence, social competence, and spatial awareness through the practice of yoga. Discover U Summer Camp Yoga curriculum was designed specifically to introduce children to the concepts of awareness, sustainability, and effective thinking; and to give them the tools to positively navigate an ever-shifting society.

By allowing them a safe space for self-expression and epistemological exploration, the children have an opportunity to define their personal goals and dreams. Then, working with themes like “teamwork”, “self-respect”, and “breathing to focus”, the children are exposed to new ideas that opened up their concepts of self. And by identifying and addressing their physical, mental, and emotional needs, the children were able to establish personal values as well as the human values that inspire them to reach their goals, both short term and life-long. Participants gain a deeper understanding of their bodies and minds. The children take away a set of skills that will give them a distinct advantage in their journeys toward the bright future.
