Urban Yogis - Teenagers, Domestic Violence And Yoga

Category:  Meditation And Yoga

The teens in NYC's Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP) come from homes where they've witnessed violence or been victims of abuse themselves. For one hour a week they visit Eddie Stern's Ashtonga Yoga studio to practice yoga and find peace.

As Eddie says, give a teenager ten minutes to lay down and do nothing and they love you. Discover how these teens allow their one hour a week with Eddie to find relaxation and center themselves to better deal with stressful situations.

  • Thank you so much for sharing this...Yoga has been and is my way of dealing with a difficult past...that and writing it down, my greatest gift my deepest injury, making it a diamond.:)

  • My who reason for wanting to be a yoga instructor is to offer free classes to the kids in the poor neighborhood I grew up in. I didn`t have access to yoga classes and I think it would have helped me immensely as a teenager.

  • I think it`s so magical what yoga does for these kids. I`m inspired. I`m not an instructor but I`d love to see about bringing opportunities to stretch and breathe to my own urban community in CA. Thanks Chopra Well.

  • Sorry to hear there aren`t yoga classes near where you live! Thankfully there are tons of yoga videos on YouTube, so starting your own morning practice shouldn`t be too difficult. We have an extended yoga video with Eddie Stern on our channel, and you can also check out Tara Stiles` yoga channel for more great videos. Good luck! Glad we could inspire!

  • This is a very inspirational video. The yoga classes look relaxing and fun, I wish where I live there could be yoga classes. Yoga does take away stress, so I`ll be doing it at home in the mornings. Thanks for uploading :)
