About Afro Yogi Kids

Finally! A spiritual, emotional, and mindfulness training space structured for the child of Color. Today, kids of color have to face a lot of pressure from their peers along with society and media’s false narrative of what it means to be a child of Color. They will have a strong possibility of growing  up to face many internal battles. We can not afford to be lazy when raising the child of Color. We must instill in them confidence, self-control and enough mindfulness that enables them to still remain stern.  Afro Yogi Kids was created to help kids of Color obtain self-confidence, heal/combat trauma, and to create focus and emotional control. We understand the challenges, even as adults; to gain control over those many factors that stay racing inside of our minds. They are crippling and can take control of our lives if we don’t learn how to silence them and use them for fuel towards our destiny. Teaching our kids how to control their minds at an early age can be extremely beneficial for their health, well-being, and their futures. We aim to give our Afro Yogi kids the gift of peace, clarity, determination, focus, and the self-confidence to strive. Our trainings are lessons our children can take with them for the rest of their lives, as we aim to teach them to understand themselves, their minds, bodies, and souls. Its never too early to learn and practice these valuable lessons. Our ultimate goal is to do our part in helping you to raise future generations of mentally and emotionally strong children of color.

Emotional Control

Don’t take for granted the stresses our kids deal with daily. Lets teach them how to let go and move forward with their goals. Holding on to stress is a threat to our health. We teach breathing techniques and give relaxation tips.

Focus

Meditation is the key. We teach our Afro Yogis how to stay on track and complete their goals and desires. Kids are naturally curious, we forgive them, but we plant the seed of the importance of focus now and watch the lesson bloom.

Self-Esteem

This is one of our BIGGEST goals! We want all of our kids to understand the importance confidence. Being comfortable in their skin, no matter what society may throw their way. Confidence can get you far, while a lack of it can certainly hold you back.  We also use lessons in African Spirituality to assist with some of our lessons.
