Damien and Aiesha

Our founders Damien and Aiesha Teague believe in providing opportunities for children to explore movement in a fun and supportive environment, our primary objective is to provide children with strategies that build the resilience they need to adapt to the busy, outcome-based world in which they live.  Breathing, movement, meditation, affirmation are some of many strategies we utilize to promote adaptibility, self-esteem, courage, a healthy body and a calm and confident mind.  This is important - necessary - work, and we are proud of our competent and caring team of teachers that works so effectively to offer the benefits of a holistically healthy lifestyle to children.

 We foresee AY moving toward greater involvement in supporting and producing the research that validates the work that we do.   We anticipate opportunities for collaboration with children's healthcare providers, adapting yoga programming for use in therapy and other mainstream healthcare settings.  We foresee yoga being used, not just in yoga classes, but as a means of sustaining a healthy and academically sound educational environment in schools; in the clinical treatment of issues such as ADHD, anxiety, depression and autism spectrum disorders; and in the home, as a tool to help children and families to work and play harmoniously together.  And, we are taking a leadership role in collaboration with children's yoga educators throughout the U.S. to cooperatively develop children's yoga standards and to promote our work to schools and other organizations and professions which offer services to support the well-being of children.

At AY, we are blessed with a team of talented and dedicated yoga professionals who whole-heartedly embrace our mission. We are entirely committed to the work that we do, and to the children who never fail to ignite our passion. We hope you'll join us!
