Cleveland Yoga Community Cares-Scholarship Program
Cleveland Yoga is excited and proud to offer a unique opportunity this summer for teens. We all experienced the challenges of COVID-19 and the teenagers are no exception. Studies have shown that anxiety and depression has skyrocketed in this demographic and we also know the benefits of yoga for athletes both physically and mentally.
Our goal is to make this affordable and possible for ALL teens regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.
As a part of the Cleveland Yoga community, we are asking for you to consider donating to a scholarship program that would allow for 5 scholarships.
