Yoga for the Asthma Community

 Yoga & Ayurveda for Asthma

   We started a 4-week community program introducing Yoga and Ayurveda (healthy eating) to children and families of the Long Beach Alliance for Children with Asthma. We wanted to demonstrate that yoga postures, breathing, meditation, and health education could offer useful tools for managing symptoms of asthma in children. Participants received handouts which show various yoga postures that can be practiced at home and each person also took home a yoga mat and neti pot. View the Full PDF report (including survey results)

   The classes also touch upon more general discussions about physical health and the campaign for cleaner air in the Long Beach area.

   Many thanks to the wonderful organizations for the pilot grant monies that made it possible for us to bring it all together to secure the location, purchase neti pots and mats for all the participants. Teamwork makes the dream work!

Special Thanks to our Sponsors!
