Library program


Through the integration of the ancient art of oral storytelling and yoga, children are led of body and word, children are exposed to a new way of enjoying stories and finding ways to connect with their bodies.  Captivating diverse tales enlighten children through yoga postures as gestural illustrations to demonstrate the importance of love, generosity, peace and friendship. Self-reflection, self-awareness and mindfulness are developed, while children's listening and communicating skills are sharpened, and simultaneously promoting story sequencing and retelling abilities.

Empowering at-risk teens through yoga and art


Every young woman should have a chance to reach their full potential.  CYP guides young women to improve emotional regulation, interpersonal skills and social behavior through a gender-specific, highly effective art and yoga curriculum.   

​Past participants in this program have been led toward accountability to self, others and community by being provided practical tools to effect behavioral change. In addition, the girls have significantly increased their self-awareness, self-respect, and self control.
